THE SPREAD. Wisconsin opened as a touchdown favorite over Iowa. That line quickly moved to 9.5 in less than 24 hours where it has stayed steady. Even with the movement, the money (67%) is going to Wisconsin. The over/under opened at 50 and has moved down to 48.5 at the time of this post.

DON'T FORGET TO WEAR BLACK.

PREDICTIONS. I can't find anyone taking Iowa. That's no surprise in a game with a 10-point spread. All four Big Ten Network predictors believe Iowa will lose by double digits. Marc Morehouse breaks down the advantages and disadvantages for both teams and says the Badgers by eight.

THE HONORARY CAPTAIN.

THE BIG TEN MEDIA DAY FOR MEN'S BASKETBALL WAS YESTERDAY. Here's Fran:

THERE'S PLAYER VIDEO TOO. Hawkeye Drive was in Chicago and captured interviews with Melsahn Basabe, Roy Dev Marble, Zach McCabe and Aaron White. They're longer videos than usual, 8-10 minutes, and worth your time.

THE HAWKEYES WILL BEGIN THE SEASON IN THE "OTHERS RECEIVING VOTES" CATEGORY. The first AP Poll for men's basketball was released yesterday. Iowa is not in the Top 25 but received enough votes to be considered 30th. Wonder who voted for Iowa and who didn't? Take a look.

NICKNAMES?

IT WAS MEDIA DAY FOR THE LADIES TOO.
