Do not worry. I do not take personal insult. I think it is fun to discuss. I could not imagine my Great Lakes Conference above is much worse than the Big 12 was last year, for instance. Just running down the line on NCAA seeds... #2 Kentucky // #1 Kansas #2 Louisville // #3 Baylor #4 Purdue // #4 West Virginia #5 Notre Dame // #5 Iowa State #6 Cincinnati // #10 Oklahoma State #7 Michigan // #11 Kansas State #9 Vanderbilt // NIT TCU #9 Michigan State // Texas Tech NIT Indiana // Oklahoma Ohio State // Texas While the Big 12 has fewer tournament teams, I am pretty sure that OSU, KSU, and TCU would have matched up well with the Midwestern teams on the other side from them. Neither side "over-played" their seeds much -- most of them were "right" or under-performed. A few Big 12 teams slipped because the top-half of the conference beat them up -- Oklahoma State was far better than a #10, and TCU was better than many tournament teams. I bet KenPom-wise the two conference would be pretty equal to each other. I think having a super-conference in a double round-robin like that would be quite very fun. The same thing would happen in a IN-KY-MI-OH conference like that. Having something that covers that "diamond" of four states just makes geographical and historical sense. That region just has a ton of great basketball. Watching a full round-robin each year between Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame, and Ohio State (and lately, Louisville) would be great fun, as well, when it comes to football. If you want stadiums filled, well, there you go.
