The first thing to remember about a basketball game is that if you win, you win. Period. If you lose, you lose. Period. That’s just the way it goes. So, when it comes to college basketball, the first thing to start with is the number of teams. The top teams in each conference will be in the bracket for the first round of the tournament. The second thing to consider is the seeding.
seeding is the process by which the NCAA determines which teams will play in the first round of the tournament. The system has grown over the years and is now based on a number of factors, including which team has the best record overall and which team has the best record in their conference. It is up to the NCAA to decide what is a “best” team based on these criteria.
In 2004, the NCAA started seeding the tournament based on the strength of the teams in each conference. Since then, the NCAA has dropped the strength factor used in the seeding process and instead has used the seedings based on the overall record for the conference and then based on the strength of the teams in each conference. The first round of the tournament will be decided by the teams that win their conference. The second round will be decided by the teams that win their conference.
So what does that mean for the rest of us? Well, it’s going to be a lot more interesting than we thought it would be. We get to see that the Big Ten has the best record of anyone in the country, but the Big Ten also has the best conference record of any conference in the country. That’s not an accident.
The Big Ten might have been the best conference in the country, but it was not the best conference in the country. Since the Big Ten is the SEC, that means the Big Ten has had a better conference record in each conference than the SEC. In fact, there are only two conferences in the country that have a better conference record than the Big Ten.
The SEC has had a better conference record than any other conference in the country since 1999. The Big Ten has had a better conference record since 1983.
As far the record going into the Big Ten tournament in 2010, Michigan State beat the Michigan Wolverines, but they then lost to Ohio State on the day of the Big Ten tournament. So Michigan State was a better team in the Big Ten than it had been in the SEC.
Michigan State was just as good as Michigan when they were in the Big Ten. This was before the scandal, however. The Big Ten conference realignment in 1983 was a mistake that backfired big time.
Michigan State’s record in the Big Ten conference is even better. They won the conference tournament in 1993 and 2005, but lost to Ohio State in 2010.
But it’s a mistake. As bad as it was, it was more than bad. It was a disaster. For the first time since the divisional realignment in the late ’70s, the Big Ten conference was not the most competitive conference in the Big Ten. As a result, the conference was no longer able to draw top-quality talent to recruit high schools.
