After seeing Ohio State, Iowa, Illinois, Purdue, and Michigan State lose to equal or lesser seeds the first weekend, I feel the Big 10 highly compressed schedule of games - 6 games in 13 days followed by 3 games in 3 days (4 in 4 for Ohio State) in the Big Ten took its toll on these Big 10 teams this weekend. They were physically and mentally exhausted. They looked a bit slow. I don’t think it’s coincidence they all lost. Of all these teams, the Illini have a championship to show for it!!
