Schedule Projections

November 14, 2008

About a month ago I broke down the basketball schedule and came up with the following:

These 17 games are wins, go ahead and log it

Michigan Tech

Northeastern

Norfolk State

Savannah State

Eastern Michigan

Oakland (at the Palace)

Florida Gulf Coast

North Carolina Central

Illinois

at Indiana

Iowa

at Penn State

Northwestern

Penn State

at Northwestern

Minnesota

at Minnesota

 

None of those are outrageous picks. So that leaves us with these remaining 14 games:

 

UCLA (Madison Square Garden)

Duke/Southern Illinois (Madison Square Garden)

at Maryland

Duke

Wisconsin

at Illinois

Ohio State

at Ohio State

at Purdue

at Connecticut

Michigan State

at Iowa

Purdue

at Wisconsin

 

Let’s go conservative and say they go 4-10 in those 14 games. That puts them at 21-10 heading into the Big Ten Tournament. Now they might lose one or two of the “wins” and they might win some of the undecided games. Either way you get the idea. Any thoughts?
