With over a week until the real Big Dance gets underway, it's not too early to start filling out brackets—just not the 68-team bracket.
The Big Ten tournament tips off Thursday in Chicago's United Center, and it promises to be a doozie.
I am 27 years old, and as an avid basketball fan my whole life, living in Big Ten country, I can say without much doubt that this was the best, most competitive, most entertaining Big Ten basketball season of my lifetime.
I have been excited for this tournament since mid-Janurary, and that excitement has not waned.
Without further rambling, I will attempt to predict and add a few tidbits to each game.
Get excited. March Madness is here.
