    Big East overrated?

    Notre Dame down
    Marquette down
    Georgetown down
    Nova survives but should have been down

    All were heavy favorites. I thought all year long the Big 12 was by far the best conference and this just reafirms that

    Big East is not backing up their hype.

    I bought into the Big East dominance all season. Not sure what is up, but they are failing the test so far.

    Re: Big East overrated?

    Washington has been very good down the stretch this season. But there's no excuse for the other 3 games.

    Re: Big East overrated?

    I'd like to thank the Big East for single handily screwing my bracket. Now I feel just great about my pick of West Vir, in the title game.

    And of all those games, Nova was the only game (15 vs 2) that I had any interest in one team over the other.

    Big East = Over-rated???

    For being so highly touted during the regular season the Big East, as a whole, has really failed to impress so far this post-season.

    NIT:
    Connecticut beats Northeastern 59-57
    South Florida loses to NC State 58-57
    Seton Hall loses to Texas Tech 87-69
    Cincinnati beats Weber State 76-62
    St. John's loses to Memphis 73-71

    NCAA:
    Notre Dame loses to Old Dominion 51-50
    Villanova beats Robert Morris 73-70 in OT
    Georgetown loses to Ohio 97-83
    Marquette loses to Washington 80-78

    That's 2-3 in the NIT and 1-3 in the NCAA, with the only NCAA tourny win over a 15 seed in overtime. I'm hoping West Virginia, Pitt, Syracuse (not really though), and Louisville can pull it together tomorrow or else this conference is going to take some heat.

    Thoughts?

    Re: Big East overrated?

    THat is why they have so many teams. It takes a village to get to the finals.

    Re: Big East overrated?

    Guess the east coast hype machine is looking pretty silly today! I'm enjoying it even though it's messin' up my bracket. I picked ODU over ND, but certainly none of the others.

    Ditto that. I still believe there is an outside chance.
