Since the beginning of the millenium the Big Ten is tied with the ACC with the most Final Four appearances with 10.

Big Ten/ACC - 10
Big East - 8
Big 12 - 7
Pac-10 - 4
Conference USA - 3 (this is when Louisville and Marquette were still part of Conference USA)
Colonial Athletic Assosication - 2
Horizon League - 2 (Butler)

Yet the acc has 5 national champs to the big tens 1(and you have to go back to the beginning of the millennium to find it). Like I said one conference gets it done while the other doesn't. The acc continually gets underrated because the top teams are usually the best in the nation. The fact that Miami is unranked with the #5 RPI is an absolute joke while a team that just got stomped by Wisconsin is still ranked. so like I said I dont really care about regular season rankings, acc gets it done when it counts. Also inb4 anyone bringing up the big 10 acc challenge...its meaningless.

But a conference doesn't play the games, single teams do. Don't get why you can't understand that. Teams have bad games. 3 Big Ten teams have had bad games in the last 7 years. That doesn't make it not the most competitive conference from top to bottom.

It's a one game tournament where anything can happen. Have a cold shooting night and you're out. Did anyone really think Butler was a top 2 team when they made the Final back to back years? Did anyone really think VCU or George Mason were top 4 teams when they made the Final Four? No, they just got hot at the right time and maybe they got a good matchup or another team had a cold shooting night or whatever. This isn't a series of games where the better team wins 95% of the time.

I didn't get why Duke didn't fall further than Michigan in the polls. But whatever.

Michigan is taking out their loss against Ohio State by currently thumping a good Minnesota team in their building.

Oregon is doing quite well thus far. Will be fun to see them in the Tourney again if they can keep it up.

Completely wrong, a number 1 seed wins 90% of the time...a one or two seed wins it like 95% of the time. The best*teams usually win the tourney.

Difficult to follow college basketball today with NHL coming back and all

Usually college basketball takes precedence but NHL might take priority today

Forget that syracuse - Louisville game...the Flyers are playing

Cuse beats the #1 team without their 2nd best player.

"but but but Boeheim only can win at home against cupcakes"

SCREW THE HATERS, Boeheim is the 2nd best coach of all time in NCAA history.

Again with your anti-Syracuse bias. Syracuse is great. Who cares if they schedule lightly

They are boss
