    I think a win today makes them a lock. They have the number one sos on the country. They should destroy depaul.

    UConn has the #3 SOS and that has mor to do w/ the overrating of the BE and even if the sched was that touhg you actually have to beat teams. They were 8-10 in a weak BE, they lost to UCF in non conf, lost to SH, Rutgers & Providence. Wins of note- FSU when FSU was struggling early and ND before they started playing well. UConn shouldn't even be on the bubble right now.

    I think you mean "weaker" Big East. It's down compared to past years, but it's certainly not "weak". UConn should most certainly be on the bubble. The argument could be made as to whether they should be in or not, but they most certainly should be on the bubble.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    It is weak, there is one FF contender in the conference and as usual the bottom half is atrocious. Uusally it is overrated but they have quality at the top but outside of SU they don't have much in the BE and going 8-10 in this BE should not get anyone near bubble talk let alone in.

    Ah, typical ACC basketball fan. The Big East is ALWAYS overrated to ACC fans.

    This has nothing to do w/ the BE being bad like it is, it has everything to do w/ a poor resume that doesnt' deserve inclusion into the NCAAs.

    yes, the BE is usually overrated- 11 teams made last year and 9 didn't make it out of the first weekend. That screams overrated, wouldn't you agree?

    How soon we forget the 2 most recent ACC vs. BE FF matchups:

    2009: UNC 83 Villanova 69
    2010: duke 78 WVU 57


    The ACC doesn't have 57 teams to beat up on a weak bottom half to get a million teams in.

    The BE's first season was 1980, since 1980:

    years w/o a FF:
    BE: 1980, 1981, 1983, 1986, 1988, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2005, 2006, 2008
    ACC: 1980, 1985, 1987, 1996, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2011

    FFs:
    BE: 17
    ACC: 29

    Nat'l Titles:
    BE: 6
    ACC: 10
