From what I've seen from some of these supposed powerhouse programs and powerhouse conferences, I know damn well UAr and Mizzou would've beaten the snot out of several of them; hell, the "powerhouses" are losing to mid-majors right and left as it is.
If folks don't actually watch these other conferences play, they'll never be able to reliably compare us to other conferences.
One huge disparity I've seen almost across the board is most of these teams play little or no defense at all; they just run up and down the court launching shots back and forth. Pathetic.
Blew Pitt's mind when they actually faced a team that played defense today.
Well hopefully Florida and Kentucky can keep pushing on. Michigan is most likely the end of our line, but I think Kentucky can get past Witchita State(although I do have them losing to Louisville in the sweet 16), and Florida obviously has a chance to take home the title this year.
I think we can actually make a difference in terms of the NCAA's view on SEC teams this year, though. Especially with Kentucky as an 8 seed taking down an undefeated team and Tennessee making it to the sweet 16 despite almost getting left out of the tournament altogether. Showed at the very least there's no excuse for a team like UMass to make it, much less as high of a seed as they were, over a team like Tennessee, Mizzou and the likes.
