Went 6-1 in the first round. Now 2 for 2 sending teams to the Sweet 16. And did it in convincing fashion. So far living up the "best conference in basketball" hype. Would be sweet to shut them all up tomorrow with a win.
I would say that so far their postseason performance has been close. I would have to figure out who the second best conference is to judge but no conference has been close to them outside of the A10.
Big 10 this postseason:
Michigan and Michigan State beat two teams that they were supposed to with big home-court advantages.
Minnesota wins as an 11 in a game they were favored in against a joke of a 6 seed.
Illinois wins a 7-10 tossup.
Indiana beats a 16 seed.
Ohio State beats a 15 seed.
Wisconsin blows a game as a 5 seed.
Like ojoe said, let's wait and see. I think they are the best, but they haven't done that much yet other than mostly "hold serve" so to speak.
I love that the Big 12 is terrible. I want to out compete those guys always. I don't get warm fuzzies knowing that the other teams in our conference are really good. All that matters is how well ISU does.
If this is the Big 12's worst year, its doing pretty well.
