The Big Ten conference won’t release an entire preseason poll at Thursday’s Big Ten Media Day in Chicago, but will instead unveil just the league’s top three teams in the preseason.

Ohio State beat writer Bob Baptist of the Columbus Dispatch completed his annual poll of Big Ten writers (27, up to two per program) for the upcoming season and released the results this morning.

The league’s media voted Indiana to finish ninth.

Indiana received 163 votes, which was 33 behind Illinois and just one ahead of Maryland, which was picked to finish 10th. The media’s top three teams, according to the poll conducted by Baptist, are Wisconsin, Ohio State and Michigan State.

The full poll is available after the jump.

    I stand corrected. I forgot how highly touted Anderson was. He was a very good player, but sometimes gets lost in those late 80s/early 90s teams with all that talent. Those teams were great.

    I know the feeling I get good feeling at work when Kentucky gets beat. Don’t quote me but I think they lost to arkansas last year that was the best work day ever. Then all year i said the B1G was the best conference in college basketball, when kentucky beat mich and wisc i never heard the end of it but I did get to say that IU did to and it wasnt only by one point lol.

    This is the 3d year in a row the BigBlewNation is talking smack about going undefeated and hanging another banner in CorRUPPt Arena. I so hope that doesn’t happen…
