So, whaddaya gotta say about that "weak" Big Ten now!

Not one, not two, but THREE, count 'em, THREE teams in the Elite 8. And two of them get there by beating ACC teams.

(Yeah, so I'm out of the survivor pool by Duke losing. You think I'm upset about this? Hah!!).

Don't take this the wrong way, 'cause I still respect North Carolina (who so far has been playing lights out in the tournament), but I don't wanna hear any more talk about how down the Big Ten is compared to the ACC (or the Big East, for that matter). And I don't expect to hear any more dissin' on the Illini 'cause they ran up their record in the Big Ten. Yeah, they ran up that record beating, among others, two teams that made it to the Elite 8.

The Big Ten's still pretty good. The Illini have been damn good, too. Friggin' east coast people seem to think nobody plays good basketball more than 200 miles from the Atlantic Ocean. Provincial B*st*rds.
