U cant argue it
we got the most teams in the tourny
Tied for 1st in Sweet 16 teams
#1 in Elite 8 teams
Tied for 1st in Final 4 teams
let me break this down for u for the last time, point by point. first of all ALL of those things u just said are either or wash or a 1 team difference (refer to what i said 2 or 3 posts ago, law of avgs etc).. so that sh*t really doesnt make any case for u, if anything it might make a case for your conf being the most diluted from a talent standpoint.. cuse was a glowing example of this.
aside from that. none of those things you just said tell the whole story at all.
you also have to have common sense. objectively and subjectively look at how the b1g teams performed. a pretty good measuring stick of a conference is how well they do OUTSIDE of their conference play. first of all the big ten had the highest RPI of any conference.. that tells u something..
second of all look at how we did against higher seeds in the tourney,, compared to how bad the bigeast flopped against lower seeds:
purdue (last team in the dance from the big ten) upset their first round opponent; was 1 or 2 plays away from beating kansas.. put up a better f!ght than UNC did (i still find it funny how nobody talked about this)
IU (lower seed) was the only team to beat UK during the regular season, hung 90 on them and came about the closest to beating them as any1 did in the tourney... how is that not a final four capable team this year?
wisconsin (lower seed) (5th big ten team) was one of approximately 12 blown/botched calls away from beating syracuse.... also knocked off one of the hottest teams in the country coming into the tourney (the other team that beat UK)
OSU (lower seed) SCHOOLED cuse..
syracuse was a couple TERRIBLE botched calls that went in their favor away from losing to god damn U N C asheviille for fu*ks sake MFer.. talk about pretenders
georgetown worked by NC fu*kin ST (lower seed)
marquette - worked over by UF.. (lower seed)
Lousville was top 5 preseason just didnt fullfill the hype until tourney time. pitt was top 3 or some sh*t preseason
i still laugh at this..
msu was unranked. the only real disappointment from the b10 was UofM, which a lot of ppl saw coming because they had no frontcourt at all this year....... top to bottom if you're talking from a pure competitiveness which conference is best, this season AND going into next it is NOT... EVEN. ........... CLOSE.... so stop it.
ANYBODY with a single shred of objectivity in this thread would admit it (which explains why the credible analysts who watch college bal for a living UNANIMOUSLY did admit it, from the beginning of the season until the END day of the season - that's why i brought that point up) ,
but the boxden retards all hate the big ten because it's 'ugly' so they prolly wont..
amd i know that you're allergic to reading and chances are you havent even made it this far sooooooooooo i rest my case
