Bracketology: How many bids for the Big Ten?

Dave2015Heading into January, a good over-under line for how many Big Ten teams would make the NCAA tournament field felt like 9.5.  It still does. If you were hedging your bet today, which way would you go?

Here’s what we do know about some potential Big Ten bubble teams:
Minnesota is an even 12-12 on the season.
Purdue is 14-12 with a trip to Wisconsin up next (then three of four at home).
Indiana has lost five of six games and three of its next four are away from Bloomington.
Illinois has lost four straight and heads to Penn State this week with Ayo Dosunmu’s status as day-to-day.
Rutgers is 1-8 in games played outside the RAC with three of its final five away from home.

Today’s biggest beneficiaries of a chaotic bubble are Utah State and Richmond. Whether the Aggies and Spiders can hold their at-large spots may depend as much on those behind them as it does on their own performance.
