If the Cornhuskers win in West Lafayette, consider the NCAA dreams over.

USA TODAY Sports

If Purdue does not win this afternoon any hope of playing int he NCAA Tournament is over. It is clear there is a hierarchy int he Big Ten. After Indiana escaped Penn State yesterday afternoon Northwestern, Penn State, and the loser of this Purdue-Nebraska game are officially the bottom three in the Big Ten. The only difference is that Penn State and Nebraska are playing hard and have enough talent to shock anyone, while Northwestern is basically a hopeless case in the league.

If Nebraska wins at Purdue, Purdue is then that team that is bottom tier with enough talent for an upset.

Don't f*** this up.
