Big Ten Bracketology 2011: No Change From Chris Dobberteam

Chris Dobberteam did his most recent update to his bracket projections yesterday, and things are stable for the Big Ten, as nothing has changed for them from the previous projection. To review, here's where Dobberteam has the Big Ten teams seeded as of right now.

Ohio State Buckeyes - #1 in the East bracket
Purdue Boilermakers - #2 in the Southwest bracket
Wisconsin Badgers - #4 in the Southeast bracket
Illinois Fighting Illini - #9 in the Southwest bracket
Michigan Wolverines - #10 in the West bracket
Michigan State Spartans - Playing the Virginia Tech Hokies for the right to be the #12 seed in the Southwest bracket.

Things could seriously change for the Big Ten today, in both directions, as the Big Ten Tournament gets underway in Indianapolis. Two teams in particular, Penn State and Michigan State, can change their fates based on their tournament performance. An early loss by Michigan State could bump them out of the tournament all together, while Penn State could find themselves dancing if they beat the bottom-ranked Indiana Hoosiers this afternoon and pull of an upset of the Wisconsin Badgers in the second round.
