Man going to a big 10 school (granted one that isnt involved in the challenge this year), I thought that was quite embarassing. ACC went 7-2 this year against the big 10! On top of that, some of the games against the better teams werent even close. I thought the big 10 would have some good teams this year, but after seeing that I am beginning to wonder if they can even get 1 team into the sweet 16.

Doesn't this happen every year? The ACC is usually stronger than the Big 10 most years. Just take solace in the fact that if they did this in football, the Big 10 would clobber the ACC. That's what I do, anyway.
The ACC has traditionally always been the stronger basketball conference, bar none. We'll see what happens next year with a full 11-on-11 and likely losses from Miami, and Virginia Tech.

your forgetting we have northwestern & penn st.
and to the point of traiditonally happen, ACC was won them all but usually 5-4 with a very close game deciding it.

Yeah, that's true, but Penn State's 3-1 right now. Last year, they never got the first win til 12/14, the third win came on 12/28, and they only won 7 games all season. (courtesy Click Here (gopsusports.com)) Ed DeChellis is doing a great job so far as our first-year head coach, taking over for the resigned Jerry Dunn - apparently, not all sports teams in Happy Valley have to use a prevent-type defense. Imagine that. I'm not saying they're going to the Final Four this year or anything, it gives me a reason to actually trudge up the hill and part with $5 several times in addition to the IU game this season.
Man, that IU/Wake Forest game was pitiful, from an IU fan's perspective. Seemed like all IU could do for awhile was turn the ball over. Hopefully once Leach's knee heals we'll have a little bit more help inside for that Sweet 16 ride. Yes, I'm allowed to dream. My football season ended in November again.

PSU 3-9 (1-7 Big Ten). Officially the worst season ever. Look what you did, Penn State, you've driven me to solving soap-opera serial killer crimes. Thank God for basketball.
The idea that the NBA is throwing around is setting up an eight or ten team division in Europe within the next 5 or 10 years. The NBA can own the teams and sell them at a later date to potential investors.
