Big Ten Basketball Power Rankings - Conference Season #4

It was a very predictable week in the Big Ten, which makes for little movement in the power rankings.  Let's be honest, no Purdue fan really wants to be writing about basketball, let alone praising their conference rivals right now.  So instead of rationale for the rankings, I present some venting haiku.

On to the rankings,
where all I have to say is:
Let's go Michigan!

1.   Michigan (20-1, 7-1) [Last week's rank: 1]

Please just keep winning
Especially this weekend
Because IU sucks

2.   Indiana (19-2, 7-1) [Last week's rank: 2]

Enjoy this feeling
Because in March I can't wait
To laugh at your fall

3.   Michigan State (18-4, 7-2) [Last week's rank: 3]

All around the Big
We used to respect your class
But now you're an ass

4.   Ohio State (16-4, 6-2) [Last week's rank: 4]

Thomas sure looks good
But your fans are annoying
So I still hate you

5.   Wisconsin (14-7, 5-3) [Last week's rank: 5]

You got a big head
By beating the Hoosiers (thanks)
Head too big for body

6.   Minnesota (16-5, 4-4) [Last week's rank: 6]

A bunch of dumb thugs
Exposed as Tubby's failure
Go on, keep losing

7.   Purdue (11-10, 4-4) [Last week's rank: 8]

I am disappoint
You don't deserve this rank, but
Everyone sucks more

8.  Iowa (14-7, 3-5) [Last week's rank: 7]

Cry yourself to sleep
Because you lost to Purdue
Make some clutch free throws

9.  Northwestern (12-10, 3-6) [Last week's rank: 9]

You may feel better
After playing Saturday
If you wear crimson

10.   Illinois (15-7, 2-6) [Last week's rank: 10]

Our friend Bruce Weber
Is laughing his head off at
Your futility

11.  Nebraska (11-11, 2-7) [Last week's rank: 11]

Beating the Wildcats
Was a surprise victory
Rooting you win out

12.  Penn State (8-13, 0-9) [Last week's rank: 12]

Almost a year since
You won your last Big Ten game
Please suck on Tuesday
