Super-Prestigious OTE Preseason All-B1G Basketball Team Released

New, 25 comments

I mean, not a REAL preseason All-B1G team. It’s OTE’s All-B1G team. Which is to say...here are some good players in the Big Ten.

NCAA Basketball: Illinois at Iowa
But which one? Ooooooh, the excitement...
Jeffrey Becker-USA TODAY Sports

So what’s wrong with an under-explained list of our preseason All-Big Ten basketball team?

What do you mean, you don’t know who plays for what team or who’s any good?

What do you mean, “you’re a football blog—stick to doing that poorly”?

How DARE you?

We have one podcast preview of Northwestern, Nebraska, and Rutgers already out — but this is an All-Big Ten team, so you’re not gonna hear much about those players below.

Hell, you’re not going to hear much of anything, because remember: under-explained list.

We’ve got seven voters: Stewmonkey13, MC ClapYoHandz, MNWildcat, beezer07, Jesse Collins, WhiteSpeedReceiver, and Andrew Kraszewski. Not everyone filled out a full ballot, meaning we’ve got some awkward, incomplete voting here.

Results below. UNANIMOUS first-team selections in all caps, First-Team Votes (FTV) noted in brackets.

First Team All-B1G

Update: Some ballots (OK, a ballot) were (was) found on the back of a truck. We couldn’t match the signature and the ink was a different color, but as part of a cabal, the Wayne County Board of Canvassers has voted to certify our election. What I have written, I have written.

    No, seriously, I’m choosing someone not on this list, and I’ll excoriate you for it in the comments.
