Which conference will lay a turd in the NCAA tournament this year?

    You know, the power conference who gets a bunch of teams in, then struggles to advance even one or two teams to the Sweet 16?

    This year, I am going with the Big 10. No particular reason, just makes sense if past performance is any indicator. Your prediction?

    Could be the ACC. I wouldn't be shocked if North Carolina was the only team that makes it past the first weekend.

    The Big 12.

    It's right in the middle of the wheat and corn belts and they've probably been eating a lot of fiber.
  6. Big 10.
    Nobody else will be close.

    Gotta be the Big 10 right?
    They got a lot of teams in, but only 2 are actually teams worth a damn.

    Big East. Expectations are too high. One team in the FF is a failure when there are three #1 seeds.

    Big 10. No way that group should have gotten 7 bids.

    I won't say I'd be shocked if the Big East struggled again. It had eight teams in the tourney last season, and Louisville was the only one to make the Elite Eight. Villanova, a 12 seed, got to the Sweet 16 before losing to Kansas, and West Virginia got to the Sweet 16 after taking out Duke.
    Otherwise, ND lost by 20 points in the second round, second-seeded Georgetown lost to Stephen Curry in the second round, Pitt lost to MSU in the second round, Marquette ran into Stanford in the second round, UConn dropped a turd against San Diego in the opening round.
    If I recall, the Big East was also talked up as a strong conference last year, but not one Final Four team with a number of high seeds.

    Big 10. Didn't deserve as many teams as they got in the field. It will show.
