Well it was nice for the Big Ten to show and confirm their title as the most overrated sports conference in the country with those stunning performances last night.
That now gives the Bug Ten exactly one..... one.... one..... actually no teams in the final eight.
Not to feel bad, the SEC doesn't have any this year either.
Actually here's the breakdown
Big Twelve 2
Big East 1
Pac 10 1
Conference USA 1
Atlantic 10 1
One of the things that I like so much about the tournament is that it's really the only venue where teams from lesser known leagues get to play the big guys on an even playing field.
This, despite the fact that many times the teams from these leagues get screwed on their seedings (see Butler) and year after year trams show up and beat the big leagues. I just wonder how many SEC or Big Ten teams would be in the final eight if they had to start as a 10th seed. Actually we already know that now; -0-.
