That MWC everybody was lapping up didn't fare to well on day 1. New Mexico, Boise, and UNLV all get bounced first game. Colorado state did win, but that just adds to my utter dumbfoundedness surrounding Mizzou and their seeding/selection in general! Pac12 didn't overachieve, just got under seeded and put right in their back yard! What's today's big upset going to be???
One of the biggest myths in college basketball is conference strength. Found it particularly funny that a lot of people were picking New Mexico to go to the Final 4 and probably hadn't seen them play all year. Just a lot of people saying they're good.
They found the caveat to scheduling. The conference that is.... I think the NCAA will take a good look at rpi and bpi and SOS formulas after this tourney. The equal nature of power teams exposed the midmajors formula. Just my opinion. By that, I mean teams scheduling non lower rpis, and looking for mids. Hope that makes sense
I agree on conference strength. It's too subjective. Not number based, you have to follow a specific conference to evaluate properly
Big east is getting massacred...
Other than UoL, did any BE team win today?
EDIT: LOL< with the lucky win by Marq. BE has 3 teams into third round. UoL, Syr, and Marq.

Big East imo is (well...was) grossly overated every year....always considered the best or deepest. Of course its the deepest...they had half a tourney field in the damn conf, and as far as getting massacred this year....it happens damn near every year. The conf usually goes from 8-9 schools to 2 after the first weekend almost every year.
Wanna go at least .500 on your bracket every year?
Jusy simply oppo in Big lEast
As for the MWC, I think most rational people knew that 5 teamd from the MWC conf was just damn stupid. More bids than the ACC or SEC? Really?
The 5th place MWC team in over teams like Maryland, Virgina, Tennessee, etc....REALLY?
So they figured out how to manipulate the RPI to get the bids...now they had to validate it by winning some games....what did they do? Go 1-4....
It was obvious it wasnt about who you played and beat. ..but who you played and lost to.
The A10 has done very well. Earlier they were 5-0 not sure if that's still accurate or not.
Several of those A10 teams are making the move to the new Big East conference.
Tubby is there
The current BE has always been overrated. They don't get penalized for the fact that the bottom 6-8 of their league is absolutely horrible. They get 8-10 teams in the tourney and after the 1st round they have lost half of them and the first weekend only have 3 left in most years. Over hyped every year.
I love that ND & Georgetown got blown out.
