Done
The Big Ten is a joke.

I dont know if it was a joke, but I said from day 1 that this was the worst possible matchup for an undersized, cold shooting buckeyes team.

Big Ten Struggles

Unread postby johnnyo » Mon Mar 20, 2006 4:18 pm

Is it just me, or does it seem that except for one team, the Big Ten struggles in the tournament every year. Illinois last year, Michigan State a few years back, etc.

Seems to me the Big East is the top hoops conference. Four in the Sweet 16.

There has been a couple of years lately where the Big Ten performed very well in the tourney including multiple final 4 team twice I think. Wasn't MSU there with Illinois last year and didn't Wisconsin make it with MSU a couple of years ago?

You're right.... Illinois & Michigan State were both in the Final Four last year.

Also, Wisconsin made the Elite 8 as an 8 seed last year.

And the Big Ten was ranked terribly in the RPI standings last season.

RPI is not a good measure of a team or conference's projected tournament success. The big 10 got some pretty rough matchups, but I am pretty sure that it was not the best conference in basketball. Georgetown was an absolutely miserable match up for the Buckeyes. Nothing worse for a team that plays 4 guards then a team full of athletic big men.
