BIG EAST TOURNAMENT 2008
Why does Georgetown, the regular season champion and top seed, have Villanova or Syracuse in the quarterfinals, two solid bubble teams, while Louisville, the second place team has the indisputably easier game, potentially facing Cincinnati? Who does these seedings? This will be one of the first times I have ever rooted for Pittsburgh, and believe me it will be strange indeed, and even if Pitt wins I have to look forward to the agony of maybe playing them in the finals.
Whoever says the Big East is not he best overall conference in the nation has no idea what they are talking about. Forget for a second the number of teams who have a legit chance to dance, reasonably eight, and you still must remember that in the last 10 years only the ACC and SEC have matched the number of national championship teams from the Big East.
