    How did the dance shake out last year?

    Well, the Big Ten had the same number of bids, and one more win than the Big 12.

    Big Ten 11-6
    Big 12 10-6
    SEC 10-3 (thanks to Kentucky).

    Again, what's your point? Not only was the BIG rated #1 in RPI, Kenpom, and Sagarin, but they had the second best conference tournament record (behind Kentucky). Oh, and they had the highest SOS and the best OOC winning percentage. What's your argument again?

    But the Big 10 had the Hocks, which trumps all in the suckage department.

    Big10 never does **** in the tourney tho. No one in the Big10 has won a national title since 2000, yet they have all the hype year after year.

    It's the B10. What does this have to do with ISU BB?




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    How many titles does the Big 12 have since 2000?

    Big 10 will have a great year again. Nothing wrong with them being 1.

    Why does everything have to be an argument for you?

    The Big 10 was overhyped all year last year and then we saw reality once the dance hit. They were NOT head and shoulders above every other conf like the media wanted you to believe. Didn't the one shrill have like 10 Big 10 teams picked to be dancing until reality hit? Then the Big 12 had it's best in the championship game not the Big 10.

    Point, the media and ESPN have a major urge to hype the Big 10 year after year undeservedly. Appears this year the same is happening again.
