    Single plays

    Vs. NW
    Vs. PSU
    @ OSU
    @ Illinois

    Really balanced breakdown between home and away alternating. Only road trip more than 1 game in B1G is OSU and Iowa.

    • DingoBlue

      Also gun to my head I see 4 to 6 B1G losses with 5 nominal.

      @ Wisco
      @ MSU
      @ IU
      @ OSU
      And 1 of two of
      Vs. Wisco
      Vs. MSU

      • ajerome33

        I see what you see, but the road game against Iowa scares me more than the home game against Wisconsin. At Illinois and at Purdue will be difficult as well. I think we go 12-6 in conference. The one home game that I am worried about is MSU, but I think we get a W. Non-conference I am concerned about Zona, @Duke, @IowaSt., and VCU should we play them. I say we win two of those four and go somewhere around 10-2 for non-conference. We would be 22-8 going into the BTT.

        • eddieben

          I agree with ajerome33–the stretch of @Iowa, @OSU, Wisco, MSU, and @Purdue will be rough in the middle of the B1G slog. But we do get some time before Wisco and MSU to rest and prepare.

  • jakelam2116

    Very early prediction: 21-9, 11-7 in the league, 10-2 in the nonconference (losses at Iowa State, Duke).

  • Northern Blue

    10 – 2 non conference, 13 – 5 conference.

  • Fab 5 Legends

    interesting schedule…i do like our last 6,7 games of the Big Ten conference…get us in a winning mentality ready for the big ten tourny and the ncaa tourny…

    on a side note…any info on Dante Exum? Maybe the owner (dylan) of this website can do a write up on him? i was espn…and he is suppose to be #3 player in 2014 draft from Australia…might play for college team in December…he has Michigan in top 5…and as i read more on him…he likes Michigan a lot…there 1-2….http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/story/_/id/9609453/dante-exum-enroll-college-december
