I was planning to go into my failure more in depth in a season ending wrap up, but this just couldn't wait. Northwestern is leading Minn at home currently and I am pulling for a NU win. If Northwestern wins they will improve their record to 13-13.
I said at the beginning of the season that I did not believe the bottom of the big ten (Nebraska, Northwestern, PSU) was as good as some other's seemed to think. I may be an arrogant dick, but when it comes to basketball I am willing and sometimes able to admit when I was wrong (as long as I am not too drunk). The numbers don't lie, I was horribly wrong.
If Northwestern wins today every team in the Big Ten will be at .500 or better at least 24 games into the season. I haven't done the research on this, but I would guess that this might be the first time in the modern era (since early 1980s) that any conference has had every team over .500 this late into the season.
