I might be getting ahead of myself here, but I did some number crunching to see where IU will be seeded in case they lose their final game to Michigan. There are a whole host of convoluted tie-breaking rules on the B1G site, but from what I gather, and assuming there are no upsets, these are IU's seeding scenarios should they lose to Michigan:
Basically, the important game is going to be tomorrow's Michigan St.-Wisconsin match. If Michigan St. wins, the the seeds should look like this (according to what I can understand from the site):
#1 - IU, #2 - OSU, #3 - Michigan, #4 - Michigan St., #5 - Wisconsin
If Wisconsin beats Michigan St., then this is what the seeding will look like:
#1 - Wisconsin, #2 - OSU, #3 - IU, #4 - Michigan, #5 - Michigan St
Obviously, If IU gets the #1 seed, they will have a much easier quarterfinal game, but the semi-final game would be a tough game against the winner of MSU/Wisconsin.
A #3 seed means they might have to play a Minnesota in the quarters and then OSU in the semi's
Which scenario would you prefer?
