So I believe it's safe to say the Big East was overrated


The ACC's been in this boat before, and now it's the Big East's turn.

The problem is that, when you're evaluating teams, over half of the games they're playing are against each other... so the only differentiator between a 10-6 team in the ACC and one in the Big East is how the two conferences fared OOC.  And since the OOC games happened in 3-5 months ago, those games simply do not represent what the teams are like now.

So given that higher Big East seeds are now 24-4 in this tourney, but higher Big East seeds are 6-4... and given that four of the biggest upsets are OVER Big East teams... and given that the only Big East team to make the Sweet 16 yesterday was one that HAD to make it, since they were facing another Big East team... well, I don't want to hear any more bitching from fans of that conference because there are two 2nd-round matchups between two Big East teams.  Without those matchups, the conference might not make the second weekend.

It's so much more fun to lob grenades at another conference than to have them lobbed at us...
