RE: Ackerman: Open to Expansion but 'Nothing on the Horizon'
So I guess the refs call the same games in March than they do in Nov thru end of the regular season? No chance. They absolutely call it differently. They're required to call it tight with the full freedom of movement stuff. IF they don't, they don't ref further.

Also, I'm sorry, but when you have schools like Providence with a 93 OOC RPI (going 9-4 against 112 OOC SOS) or Creighton with a 64 OOC RPI(with a 237 OOC SOS)- you can't say that OOC was great. Also several of those "ranked" opponents weren't ranked at the end of the season. Louisville and Northwestern didn't make the tourney. UCLA was 2nd team in. Seton Hall was the only one that had a good OOC from the bubble teams- at #20 OOC RPI, but even there, they had the loss to Rutgers.

There is 1 reason and 1 reason only that the Big East has gotten more respect the last 2 years. That was Nova winning the title. The tournament is by far the most important thing to the season. And if Nova wins it again this year, the uptick in respect will be directly tied to that.
