Who is getting in from the Big Ten? Does Nebraska surprise and make it in on the 12 line?

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament-Purdue vs Michigan Nicole Sweet-USA TODAY Sports

Well, this is awkward. Usually the Big Ten Championship Game is what paces the NCAA Selection Show but this year...it happened a week ago. Thanks, rutger. Thanks Delaney. That was all a great idea.

Is the Big Ten going to get more than four teams into the NCAA Tournament this year? Do Nebraska and Penn State get passed over and picked up as top seeds in the NIT?

Current Projections:

Michigan State: 3 seed

Michigan: 3 seed

Purdue: 2 seed

Ohio State: 5 seed

All projections via Joe Lunardi at ESPN

How to watch: 6pm ET, TBS (WHY?!)

Late edit: If this AAC Tournament game goes on like this, we’ll be looking at more a 6:30 announcement and not 6pm

Most bracket analysts hate the Big Ten this year. Teams like Oklahoma (18-13, 8-10) and Syracuse 19-12 (8-10) are projected in the last four in/first four out over a team like Nebraska who went 13-5 in the Big Ten, which seems unheard of. What do you guys think?
