    Poor showing thus far. Easy to make this argument..

    No conf has been very good. Not just the B12. Big East really sucks.

    3 of the Big 10's 5 teams made the sweet 16. No other conference has more than 2.

    OK, I've been corrected. The Big 10 Rocks!

    The Big 10 is certainly looking good....hard to argue that. Big 12 and Big East have really faltered.

    Re: Big 12 MBB Overrated?

    I would agree. The Big 10 keeps moving along and one of their teams is missing their best player who was pretty damn good. The Big 12 and Big East have been very disappointing. Once again I want to see what the elite 8 looks like before I would go out and say someone is overrated.

    Big 12 has two teams in the Sweet 16. That's not embarrassing. A&M lost a heart breaker in a 4/5 game. That's not the worst thing in the world. Kansas is really the only skid-mark on the Big 12 underwear to this point. Anytime your conference champ loses to the Missouri Valley champ, it's not good.

    Re: Big 12 MBB Overrated?

    if the b10 wants to pound their chest about this, that's fine - they sent 3. but it took a last second 3 from MSU and a last second play from Kramer (great play btw) to beat A&M in OT. TX completely choked and OSU lost a last second game to GTech.

    I think the b12 did a good job of losing close games in the tourney..but that doesn't take away from a great preseason.

    I agree with this. Although I'd probably add the Longhorns to the skid mark category. What in the heck happened to them this year?! There are probably 6 pros on that team. Guess it shows that if talent doesn't mesh in the right way, wins won't come.

    I think UNI can beat MSU with the recent injury.

    Me too but I find it very hard to pick against Izzo in the tourney. They are just always there. It seems like they are alwys in the Elite 8.

    Texas lost their 2 starting guards to injury through the year and played 3 freshman most of the time. They will be fine.

    Just think how bad most teams would be by the end of the season after losing 2 starting guards.

    They really went downhill ... never really gelled after they got knocked off by UConn.

    UT must have really slipped Wake beat them, and Wake looked horrible vs. UK.
