Ironically it was up to two newbies to save the reputation of the Big East. I guess you could say the oldies chose well.

You clearly just wish to be provocative ("a troll") irrespective of the facts. Of course, you can try to make your argument based on the year's body of work, that is fair game either way, but the NCAA performance gives you zero evidence in support. As noted before the seeded prediction was 3-4 for round one and that is what happened. The seeded prediction was that 2 would advance to the Sweet 16 and that is what happened. (Even if the results had not matched the prediction I would extract little from that because of sample size -- a statistics or probabilities course would improve your future posts -- but there is no need to go there.)
Don't bother posting if both remaining teams lose in the next round -- no one will be listening.

What a f'ing joke. Seriously. Who starts a thread with this title? Ridiculous. Yeah, not ideal for the conference and Nova craps out early again, but two programs in the S16 is pretty solid.

So which is the most underrated conference?

Hooray for the old A10 & old MCC teams - XU & Butler both in Sweet 16. . The Old Big East got zero teams in the Sweet 16.
But congrats to the Big East for getting 7 teams in the tourney. The best the A10 or MCC ever did was 5.

Sorry to offend you but thank God X won. BE has not been good in tourney. Most on this board loved calling out "Big Least" when UC was in it and put in 8-9 teams all most but two didn't make it past the first weekend-of course UConn ended up winning the title that year

Then there's the ACC which got 9 teams in, most of all conferences. Whose left there? Duke and UNC, and they haven't played their round of 32 games yet. At most they have just 2 in the sweet 16. It's not easy to get multiple teams past the first weekend.

Just makes zero sense for an X fan to even go there......I don't understand what you're trying to do? Are you an X fan or not? I have my doubts......

Big East doing fine at Round of 16. 3 SEC Teams (Ky, Fla, SC_) 3 PAC (AZ, UCLA, Ore) 3 Big 12 (KAN, BAY, W V) 3 Big 10 (WIS, MICH, PUR)
2 Big East (BUT, XU) 1 WCC (ZAGS) & 1 ACC (N CAR). The ACC had 9 teams with only 1 left. Yes, ACC is overrated. There are only 7 conferences represented in Sweet 16 & Big East has 2 teams left out of 7 or 28% of their entries. Only 23% of original field is left.
