UW Milwaukee is whooping Oklahoma. That's an 11/6 matchup.

Oh yeah, and I nailed that one on my $$ bracket.

Well at least......

the Big east apologistsmight shut up about Cincinnatti not making the tournemanet after today.

Big East so far is 0 win and 2 losses

Pathetic...........Yea, they deserved 8 teams in the tournament.

Not to bust nutz, Len, but I only count Syracuse and Seton Hall, Syracuse having gotten an automatic bid because of conference tourney.
Who am I missing? BC is ACC nowadays, ain't they?

Thank you. I forgot they were one of the joiners. Didn't they used to be MAC or something?

Oughtn't you to be asleepin' by now, too?? Quite the night owl. Sometimes I wish I got to travel like you do. I'm chained to my lowly editor's desk.

Looking at what "major" conferences have teams advancing to the Sweet 16, the Big East has outperformed the Big Ten, Big 12 and the SEC. I won't disagree that the media has talked up the Big East this year, but I think more of that came from the C-USA teams merging, and how they did not fare very well against the 2005 Big East members. Lucky for the ACC that BC decided to jump ship, it'd be awfully lonely for Duke right now.

Big East - 4 of 8 teams advance
Big Ten - 0 of 6 teams advance
ACC - 2 of 4 teams advance
Big 12 - 1 team of 4 advances
MVC - 2 of 4 teams advance
SEC - 2 of 6 teams advance
Pac 10 - 2 of 4 teams advance
C-USA - 1 of 2 teams advances
CAA - 1 of 2 teams advance

Georgetown completely spanked Ohio State.

I'll route for West Virginia, always had fun down there (Snowshoe, Gauley River, New River,24 hrs of Canaan, etc). Gansey and Pittsnogle are pretty sweet.

Georgetown is a tough team. WVU beat them twice this year, and both games were slug fests. I love watching any team that uses the Princeton style offense, and John Thompson knows it well.

Texas will be a very tough game....we'll need as many fans as possible. We came close to beating them this year, but Pittsnogle missed 3 free throws in a row...very unlike him.

Needless to say, Thursday's game will probably be quite entertaining.

Living here in the midwest, alum of a smaller school, I loathe all the folk who rave about the powerful Big 10. Glad to see them out.
