Tim Miles is the head men's basketball coach at the University of Nebraska.

Les Miles is the head football coach at Louisiana State University.

Five teams were within two games of each other for the top spot in the final Big Ten regular season standings -- Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan State, Michigan and Wisconsin. The Hoosiers took the regular season title, but it was the Buckeyes who won the conference tournament. The 2013-14 season looks to be just as competitive, as all but Indiana are ranked in the The AP preseason Top 25. Which team will come out on top this time around?
