RE: stevers thoughts
nice to know censorship reigns still over there. I posted a reply on the recruiting and of course it wasn't approved. Kind of tough to have a conversation when moderators decide that folks can't hear the message that I'm posting.

Gotta love folks saying it's still a great class when the class is the worst class since realignment. No 5 star guys and 11 4 star guys.

But it makes BE fans feel better because it's better than the AAC. Like that's the thing that matters. And only 8 of the top 50 classes are from non p5 conferences. Sorry but that's not good. Big East fans seem to want to see the AAC rot away to nothing- even if it means that they go P5 rather than AAC. And for the life of me, I don't understand that at all. The AAC isn't the enemy, the P5 is.

Tell that to the plethora of AAC fans who have been banned in the past week.

trust me, I think AAC fans are dumb as hell to think the Big East is the enemy. If AAC and Big East do well, it really helps each other out quite a bit. You don't want 2/3 of the P5 programs having top 50 recruiting classes.

Recruiting classes are overrated anyways. Many of the top recruits are one-and-done players, and many of whom do not positively impact their team in a single season to the point where they even reach the tournament (Ben Simmons, Henry Ellenson, Marquese Chriss, etc.). The strong four-year consistent players are rarely ranked in the top-50, but those players end up making the biggest impact (long-term) on a program.

As always, what matters is postseason appearances, postseason success and top-25 wins during a season (all of which the Big East has had consistently).

RE: stevers thoughts
part of what you just said is why the AAC I think looks good. Sure no 4 star guys, but they have last I checked like 36 3 star guys.

Now one thing I would nit pick with your post is the postseason success. Sure Nova 2 years ago, but outside of that, and a bit Xavier last year- that's the one huge area where the Big East has lacked. Big East just hasn't had that. 22-21 in the 4 years- and that's with Nova's 6 wins in 1 year. Lower winning percentage vs any of the p5. Raw wise 7 fewer wins than any conference in the p5. So that's a problem.

wins-
ACC 53
Big Ten 38
SEC 32
Pac 12 30
Big 12 29
Big East 22

Definitely true - although (and I know we disagree to an extent on this) I would take the number of teams in this year any day of the week, and take chances in March. Seeding matters (to an extent), but if you get seven teams in the tournament, you have a much higher probability of a team going far. Villanova, Creighton and Marquette all got upset, but Xavier went on a great run (and Butler continues to be Butler). Providence and Seton Hall lost tough opening games with USC and Arkansas, respectively.

The more chances you have of a team going far (i.e. more teams in), the higher chances a league/team has of going far.

Villanova has been our rock thus far. While I hope they continue it, we do need more dependable and reliable teams to compliment them. Xavier did that this year. Need others to follow suit.
