    That was pretty funny. I think he spent the entire day coming up with different names to make fun of the Big East.

    Barkley was right to bash the Big East. Just terrible. (bracket is getting the best of my feelings)

    Pitino is so arrogant too.. after watching that, the notre dame embarrassment is so much more enjoyable.. I hope he and barkley work the next game together.

    Re: Charles Barkley bashes Big East with Pitino on set

    He was 100% right. Like Bilas said about VCU: the debate about who does or doesn't belong in the tournament ends once the games start. Marquette winning doesn't mean they should have gotten into the tournament to begin with. Once the games start, anything can happen. 7-8 teams would have been about right, and a few of those teams should have gotten 9-11 seeds. The Big East was hugely over-seeded. Eight were seeded as a #6 or better, and UCONN was the only one to make it past the first weekend. Pathetic.

    The Big Ten got a lot of hype this year, and I agree that it was overrated. But the 7 teams who got in, earned a spot (with the possible exception of MSU). But they were seeded where they should have been. Seven teams in, and four of them were seeded as a 8-10 seed, which is all they deserved. And they played very well, all four of those teams (Purdue was just embarrassing).

    As overrated as the Big Ten was coming into the year, they've outperformed the Big East in the tournament, by a long shot. The Big East is the most overrated conference in the nation (at least the Big Ten hype will go away).

    Did Charles bash adultery? That would have been cool to watch.

    Re: Charles Barkley bashes Big East with Pitino on set

    The Big East has been considered the best conference in basketball for the past 5 - 10 years by the media, coaches, etc. Yet they havent won it all since 2004 I believe.

    No kidding; while I like Barkley's honesty, I can't listen to him for very long. He seems punch-drunk, slow to speak his thoughts and basically inarticulate. All that food is clogging up his brain. And this Moron wants to run for Gov of Alabama?$#%#$

    Re: Charles Barkley bashes Big East with Pitino on set

    Barkley is an idiot. He's been an idiot the entire tourney.

    On another note, did anybody see Gumble call CBS ESPN the other day? High quality production, I tell you.

    I don't know if I would say "by a long shot." Both have 2 teams in the sweet sixteen and the Big East knocked out two of their own teams in head to head matchups. No doubt the Big East has underperformed

    Re: Charles Barkley bashes Big East with Pitino on set

    Chuck was spot on the whole way when he called out the Big East for UCONN being able to win 5 in 5 days. If that conference is as brutal as they say that shouldn't happen. It's the toughest conference but getting 11 teams in this year was a stretch, especially considering all 11 were solidly in apprently since none played in the "first" round games.
