What team does the Prediction Machine think was most disrespected by the Selection Committee by being left out of the Tournament? The answer will surprise most people: Iowa.
Iowa finished the Big Ten season at 9-9, ahead of Illinois and Minnesota, both of whom were invited. Iowa never managed a single win against a ranked opponent but -- with the exception of a 30 point blowout to Michigan back in January -- were in every game. They were clearly the equal of teams like Illinois and Minnesota. In the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals, they lost by 3 points to a very good MSU team. But apparently the Committee drew the line at 8 invites for the Big Ten.
The Prediction Machine would have also extended invitations to Baylor and Virginia.
