    Big 10?

    Will the round of 16 finally convince the national "experts" how overrated this conference really was this year? Wisconsin, Michigan St, and probably Indiana losing and Ohio St possibly going down too.

    Re: Big 10?

    I hope they all lose in this round. Most overrated conference I've seen this year... by FAR.

    They are a fairly deep conference IMO, but no really good teams.

    Thats not the point. We are talking about the "best conf in the nation". Not the Big 12.

    Re: Big 10?

    Big 10 power victories. Still don't think seeding matters?

    13 Seed - New Mexico
    12 Seed - VCU
    15 Seed - LIU Brooklyn
    9 Seed - St Loius
    13 Seed - Montana
    5 Seed - Vandy
    15 Seed - Loyola
    7 Seed - Gonzaga
    7 Seed - St Mary's

    Re:Big 10?

    I think it's funny that you start out a bash the Big 10 thread with the phrase "Sweet 16", and then list all the Big 10 teams in it.

    Since when was this a discussion of B12 vs B1G? The B1G has been overrated all year, and we're seeing it now as their high caliber teams are losing to depleted/low ranked Big East teams.

    This pretty much sums up the Big 10 this year

    Seeding has a major role in this.

    Re: Big 10?

    ISU could be in the sweet sixteen with a 4 seed too.


    Hilton Coliseum was specifically built to hold in sound with a solid concrete structure, steel doors, and a crowd that sits just a few feet from the court. With a fan base that frequently ranks among the nations largest crowds, players from opposing teams, as well as Iowa State, have said that the floor has shaken due to the loudness of the crowd

    Head to head records show otherwise and it will soon be shown that its not a great conference. They were seeded well and beat mid majors

    if the big 10 isn't best, who is?

    Re: Big 10?

    The Big 10 will only lose credibility if they all lose in this round, which is entirely possible but not likely.

    Well if we are basing it off the tournament, I'll take the Big East. High % of teams in the tournament, and likely to get 3 teams in the Elite 8.

    If you want regular season, I'll take B12. 3 teams in the top 10 almost all year, with the best parity from top to bottom in the league. 9 super-competitive teams and TTech.

    Re: Big 10?

    So far I'd say 4 teams in the Sweet 16 and Purdue nearly took down KU in Omaha, is a pretty good showing for them. I'd put the Big East ahead, but it's close overall, IMO.
