    I LOVE IT!!!

    This was a great last week for college basketball fans that hate the lapdog east coast media. Where are all the invincible best ever teams from the greatest conference in history of the planet Big East at? Sitting on their ***** watching the game like the rest of the mere mortals. I remember a couple of the 'experts' saying the Big 10 wouldn't even win a single game in tourney! Also i dont recall hardly any saying anything about the Big 12 either.

    ....I'd say the Big East was still pretty good this year.

    Hard to argue with 4 of the last 8. They pretty well earned that hype this year.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Uh, you do realize that the lapdog east coast media loves North Carolina too, right?

    I do believe that ESPN has found that state at some point.

    I don't think our OP has figured a whole lot of things out today.

    The Big East was, in my mind, still the best conference this year. 4 of the Elite 8 teams were from the Big East. And I wish UCONN would have beat MSU. I hate the Big 10

    I'll admit I don't know much about college basketball, but if you have a conference with almost twice as many teams as some other conferences, shouldn't you always have more than your fair share of good teams?? I just think its crazy that the Big East has so many teams. More teams equals more teams that are good too.

    You are right about the strength in numbers. Not to mention the fact that they've been pulling top schools from other conferences (see Cincinnati, Louisville, Marquette).

    That being said, they were very strong with the exception of the bottom few teams.

    And don't forget that the Big East was kinda forced to "eat their own" when Villanova and Pitt played in a regional final.
    When a 4th-place team like Nova pounds Duke, that tells me all I need to know - the Big East is very tough...

    You picked UNC to win it all before the tournament even started??? That was ballsy. I bet no one else did.

    Re: I LOVE IT!!!

    The big East was far and away the best conference this year. If you have an argument for that I want to hear it. The thing that is great about college basketball is that you can be the best all year, but you still have to win 6 games in a row to become the champion and I think we underestimate just how hard that is in mens basketball with the parity that it has.

    I was happy that the Big East didn't make the title game. But they were the best conference all year long. They had more compelling games in that conference this year than all the others.
