Here We Go

It's the last weekend of regular season play. Northwestern is at Purdue. Michigan hosts Iowa. Ohio State gets a visit from Penn State. Illinois is at Michigan State. Indiana travels to Minnesota.

NU, Michigan and Ohio State are in the conference tournament, so everyone else gets to jockey for the remaining three spots. I'm not about to attempt to figure out all the possibilities and, honestly, I'm probably not smart enough for the task.

For the top spot, NU just needs to stay even with Michigan, whom they hold the tiebreaker over. Michigan needs to finish one game ahead of the 'Cats to claim the regular season title. Ohio State needs a tiny math miracle to host the conference tournament next week.

It should be fun. I hope you get out to the ballpark this weekend.
