In a hard fought game, Indiana went down at home to Ohio State. This means that with just two Big Ten games remaining, Michigan now controls its own destiny. They go on the road to Purdue on Wednesday and play Indiana at home on Sunday. Sunday is shaping up to be as epic of a showdown as last year's game between MSU and OSU in East Lansing. Here are the basic scenarios for teams to win the Big Ten title:
- Beat Michigan (outright title)
- Lose to Michigan (shared title)
- Beat Purdue & Indiana (shared title)
-Beat Wisconsin, Northwestern & Michigan win over IU (shared title)
- Beat MSU, Penn State, & Michigan win over IU (shared title)
- Beat Illinois & Michigan win over IU (shared title)

Where are the Wisconsin-MSU and OSU-Illinois games being played?
edit: also, it's absurd how possible a 4-way shared title seems

TBH it would be fitting.
That MSU/Wiscy game is going to be awesome. If we can hold off Purdue tomorrow night, everyone and their mother (in the B1G) is going to be watching our game intently on Sunday.
And cheering for Michigan!
In an ideal world, I'll be pulling for Illinois, Wisconsin, and of course Michigan. That way, it'll be IU/UM/UW for the title instead of MSU and OSU. Would be perfect IMO. Although it would be kind of funny to see MSU and OSU fans rooting for us on Sunday if they both win.
Go for Penn state too. That way its just Michigan and IU for the title.
I'd be fine with that.
But Penn State. But also Wisconsin. So go Penn State!
Wisconsin and MSU game is in East Lansing. OSU & Illinois game is in Columbus. Yes, assuming Michigan beats IU & Purdue, odds are pretty high for a 4 way tie.
We put it on a platter for you... can we at least get an Ohio St for that? pffffffft
I hope OSU loses by 30 to Illinois.
If you only call us Ohio, why still use the OSU? That's counter productive to your cause....
just tryin to help you out.....

Bucknuts don't know any better. They will still be pulling for us to lose.
I'm torn, as it truly isn't that attractive to share a 5 way reg season title....Don't know if I'll 'Pull" for you as much as I'll "Pull" Against IU...their coach has lost all my respect with his coaching his players to fake getting hit in face to try to get fouls called. Three games in a row they've done this. If I was a player and he told me to "go up to someone and act like they hit you" I'd lose all respect for him. Hey, how about I go try to steal the ball, and if I can't then we foul and send them to the line like real men do....
I will be rooting for a great game and a Michigan victory....
Don't like Crean as a coach or person....It's all about him....Plus he is a sore loser...
Should be fun to watch....You guys have some damn good players....
Well, this is kind of how most of us saw the Big 10 at the beginning of the season, huh?
They lost by 20 last time they played Illinois!
Torn? First of all it would be a 4 way regular season title. More or less the same as last year, and it's safe to say we're all glad to have a piece of the pie.
Second, how on earth do you use the word torn here? The options are simple; We win, and you guys get a share of a big ten title. Given we beat Purdue tonight (not saying we will) that would mean Michigan also gets a share. So for you guys to get a share, we get a share. Or, if we lose, Indiana gets to own the title and boast about it for the next year, while none of us other (semi) deserving teams get something to cheer about.
How on earth are you even remotely torn? Either you get a big ten title or you don't. If the roles were reversed, I would go purchase an OSU shirt for Sunday night.
If you are torn, you are saying you care equally as much, if not more, about Michigan losing as you do OSU winning. If that's the case, your priorities as a sports fan are f*cked.

Yeah, leave that crap for sparty to wallow in.
I'll be rooting for UM, but if IU wins- eh, it's just a B1G banner.. something for the recruits to look at.. but hardly a big deal one way or the other
I love how you MSU guys are always down playing Big Ten titles.
