    The vaunted B1G

    Gets the same number of teams in as the 2nd rate Big 12 (each w/ 6 berths). Interesting. So much for nine teams. Anybody know what Palm's last bracket showed?

    The committee doesn't fall for mediocre basketball. It's going to be typical Big 10 pants-crapping in the tourney. Only 2 of those 6 will even be present in the 2nd week, and only 1 will be left on the 2nd weekend.

    So top heavy then? I think MSU deserved the 1 seed, but I think Mizzou deserved a 1 over UNC. But based on the brackets, they actually had MSU as the 4th 1. UNC gets way to much leeway methinks.

    Care to make a bet on that? You do realize the Big 10 has had 4 different teams make it all the way to the NC game since 2000? Pretty sure they have more final 4's than the Big 12 as well.

    Oh yeah, they may have only gotten 6 in but they have a bunch of high seeds. Take a look at MSU's path to a possible final 4.

    Palm had Northwestern in the first four game.

    I think MSU or OSU will make the final four. No one else will make it past the Sweet 16. I guess since they have had 4 different teams make it to the NC game since 2000 and their historical final four appearances could really have a big effect THIS YEAR.

    Last 10 years is tied, 6-6. And Big 12 has a national championship during that time while Big 10 does not.

    That seeding is a joke. It's pretty clear they don't think much of the Big XII. Michigan State as a #1 is a travesty. Kansas and Missouri (as much as I hate them now) both could make a better case as a #1 than Michigan State. Then, the committee guy says that Missouri was the worst of the #2 seed because they didn't like their non-conference schedule. What!?!? They won 30 games. Michigan as a #4 is way too good of a seed and Memphis as a #6 is too weak. Clearly they were enamored of the BigTen.

    Not impressed committee

    And since 2000, the Big 10 has a NC along with 9 final fours to the Big 12's 6. They also have a winning record head to head vs the Big 12 in tournament play.

    Did I say it would? I only stated how many NC appearances they have since he thought the Big 10 routinely crapped their pants in the tournament. Kansas anybody?

    Its comical how butt hurt everyone gets over the Big 10. ISU just got their first tournament bid in years and you guys are worried about how many bids the Big 10 received.

    Mich St got a brutal second round match up. Memphis is 9th and St Louis is 15th in the country in the Ken Pom rankings yet they are the 8/9 matchup in that bracket.
