So That's Why They Call It the BIG TEN!

All season long, one of two complaints I heard most often were 1) how weak a basketball conference the Big Ten had become, and 2) how Illinois was over-rated because they played in a weak conference. Analysts liked to point out how good both the ACC and the Big East were. So let's look at the NCAA Tournament results shall we? Three of the teams in the Elite Eight, playing for the regional finals, were from the Big 10. No other conference had more than 1. Two of the Final Four teams are from the Big 10.

So maybe Illinois is that good after all?
