Default Congratulations Buckeyes!

Outright Big Ten champs. #1 ranking. A certain #1 overall ranking in the tournament. And all with a team that is largely made up of frosh. Fun fact: OSU just blew out a #3 Wisconsin team by 17 points, and 17 points is more than the combined amount of points Wisconsin lost it's other 3 L's by.

This is a Buckeyes team that can do some damage in the tournament.

Eh, who knows. Apparently being the consensus #1 team in the Country, and beating the #3 team in the Country not once but TWICE, and the second time by 17 points in a conference tourney is only worth a #3 seed.

The committee smokes crack...

You have the easiest path to the Sweet 16. The other #1 seeds could all face upset bids in the second round. Don't cry about your bracket too much. You won't face a real test until the regional final.

Who's crying? I'm happy my team is a #1 seed. They deserved it. But there is a measure of disrespect still. Skip Bayless doesn't even think the Buckeyes should be a #1, but he's been pissed off at the Buck's since they beat Thug U for the 2003 NC.

You're a #1 seed and you feel disrespected? Are you sure you're not a Notre Dame fan?

Actually, we're the third #1 seed. 30-3 (tied for the best record), 17 game win streak, defeated the #2 Wisconsin Badgers last week, then busted up the #3 Badgers Sunday by 17, RPI #1, 19-0 home record, 7-3 road record (all games where Oden either didn't play or was about 50%), SOS of 12.

This is the resume of a CLEAR #1 overall seed.

Anyway, my point is more about major media bias against the Big Ten his year. If you disagree, super-duper for you.

The same Bayless that thinks Bettis doesn't deserve to eventually go into the HoF? I wouldn't sweat anything Bayless thinks or says - the man has proven himself time and time again to be an idiot.

ESPN loves the Big Ten and CBS had more than a couple of Big Ten games this season. The Big Ten got as many teams into the tournament as the Big East and only one less then the ACC (who the Big Ten has yet to beat in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge).

So where's the bias?

And why shouldn't they? The Big Ten was a solid conference this year, and had two of the best 3-4 teams in the Country this year, but not ALL year. OSU had a little handicap when they almost beat NC in NC, since they were without Greg Oden.

Eh, whatever...the tournament takes care of all this nonsense...
