    Best BB College Conference

    According to the linked article it is without question the Big East.

    "No offense, Big 12, but you’re not even close."

    "But other than Kansas and KSU, the conference doesn’t appear to have any schools capable of making any sort of significant postseason run – especially now that Texas is in the tank."

    No arguments from me. Big East is clearly the best MBB conference.

    about a month ago you could have made a case for the Big12, but not now.

    Re: Best BB College Conference

    jason king has loved the big east sinec forever - no surprise. the tx loss to Uconn hurt, but I'll still take the b12 over the bEast in the tourney this year. Mizz, A&M, Baylor can easily be sweet 16 teams in addition to KU and KSU. And maybe TX finds its game again?

    No way. Big East is easily the best conference. They have 2-3 teams that would be in contention to beat Kansas for the conference title.

    I always say the ACC is right up there, but this year, I wouldn't make that argument... the Big East is the best conference...

    With Dickie V's beloved ACC in the tank this year, the Big East is back to being The "Big Beast".

    Re: Best BB College Conference

    big east has more great teams (as they effing should for having 25% more teams than anyone else)

    even then, big12 has more depth, and no bad teams. big east has at least 3.

    What makes a better conference? tough to say, but to say it's not even close is ridiculous.

    Re: Best BB College Conference

    Looking at RPI's, the Big East has more top 10 teams, the Big 12 has more top 40 teams (5 teams between 17 and 40, and the Big East has more top 70 teams (7 teams between RPI 40 and 70). Also, both conferences have 3 teams over RPI 100, and the worst teams have similar RPI (Colorado-149, DePaul-158).

    I'd say the Big East is slightly better, but not substantially so.

    Your first point is valid. Your second point is a stretch.
