ok let me figure this out...

the acc has never lost the big10/acc challange. ever.

espn just put up a stat... in the past i think they said 30 years...

ncaa tourney appearances by the big 10 = 189
ncaa tourney appearances by the acc = 168

ncaa tourney wins by the big 10 = 290
ncaa tourney wins by the acc = 323

so again... why, every year, do we have to go through this entire process where everyone in the media thinks the big 10 is good? when the stats obviously say otherwise?

ponderous.

There's an explanation that answers 98% of questions about the media:

The media is dumb.

It is amazing how they run in circles and never correct their mistakes. I guess since the media generally "corrects" the mistakes of others, it doesn't have to correct itself.

so duke had their first test vs. a ranked team with good size... which is what was considered to be the downfall of duke this year (no bigs).

i think they passed the test.

Um... I'd second that. Seriously, I was telling Kelly as we watched the game how excited I was about the way Duke looked, but that I didn't know if they were playing a comparable team. Everyone kept pointing out Wisconsin's height - is that their talent? Being tall? Or are they strong within the Big 10?

Nice to see the alma mater drop 107 on the Cuse in the Carrier Dome last night.

Seems like an oddly scheduled game.

Early in the season you never know who's gonna play who, some real odd matchups pop up.
Look for a high scoring affair, the Umies have scored 89 or more in 5 of 6 games, breaking 100 twice.

On a brighter note, the Big Ten is currently tied 2-2 in the Big Ten - Ivy League challenge.

michigan state and ohio state actually trail 1-2 in the Big Ten - Division 2 challenge.

and the fearsome Atlantic Sun conference does have 3 wins vs. top 25 teams.

...or the minutemen could drop the game 89-77.



The local paper is calling this the biggest victory for the IUPUI (that has to be one of the most painful combination of letters a college can have) in 35 years.

And..Butler beat Ohio State. I need to get to a Butler game this year!

pretty impressive that butler's still undefeated, considering their coach is still in high school.
