Yeah, I was gonna say, all 7 of the Big Ten teams that made it definitely deserved to make it. That doesn't mean any of them will do well in the tourney, but they all should be there.

ASU went 24-9 in the Pac10, swept UCLA, and their only losses to non tournet teams were to Baylor and Wash St. They lost the PAc 10 tourney finals in the last 15 seconds. If anything they possibly should be a 5 seed.

Arizona went 19-13, and had wins vs. Kansas, UCLA, Gonzaga...what snubbed at large team is more deserving?

Gonzaga went 26-5, losing only to AZ, Portland State, Utah(by 1 point on the road), UConn (in OT) and Memphis, what seed do they deserve? Only 1 loss there can be considered bad, Portland State. They beat the likes of OK ST, Tennessee (twice), I think 4 is right for them.

BC went 22-11 in the ACC, won at UNC, beat Duke, and lost by a point in the ACC tourney to Duke. The loss to Harvard is a bad loss, but it could be chalked up as a letdown game coming right after the win at Chapel Hill. BC should be a 6 or 7 seed.

Pitt will lose faster than most think. Blair is clueless on defense at times. When he's gone, no inside presence.

^But what about Wisconsin? I'm not sure I think they should be in...

anything that states that the big ten is better than the big east is something that i should print out, take into the bathroom and wipe my ass with.

all you need to know that the big east and acc were both far superior to the big ten is a pair of eyes.

the big east is the best conference in america... stats like the RPI can't do it justice because of how huge the conference is.



also... every year somebody gets up in arms about how outrageous it is that some team got in over some other team, and every year that some team makes a run. hello, arizona.

I think the bigger concern is them drawing some nancy ref and Blair picking up 3 quick ticky-tack fouls. That's also a concern with Thabeet...and honestly the way Louisville's D hacks and reaches looking for steals they could be in the bonus for entire games.

Yeah that could have been oogly.

At least we might finally get that Calhoun/Calipari matchup, 15 years later. Though I picked Mizzou to beat Memphis.

I already got the first game of the tournament wrong. That's a bad sign...

Anyone else think the first Thursday/Friday of the tournament are the best days in sports? Seriously, you get basketball all day, staggered, so every time something's going on you can catch the end...it's awesome. I don't think anything else comes close. NBA, NHL, and MLB playoffs are drawn out, Super Bowl is just the game after you've been bored to tears with pregame crap. To me nothing beats the first round of the tourney for drama.

Here's something for you guys to ponder...is Christian Laettner the greatest college player ever? I know everybody hates the guy, I know I do, that Kentucky shot wasn't his only dagger...not to mention he did this:

Everybody hated him already

But he also didn't miss a shot in that game, amazing.
