Jason King is wrong

Normally we would not say that. King is the man when it comes to college basketball journalism. But in this article he basically explains that the reason why the Big East is not successful come NCAA Tournament time is because their conference is so tough.

Excuse us?

Shouldn't the reason be why they are successful is because their conference is so tough? If your point Mr. King was to explain why the Big East rarely has teams in the Final Four don't point to the conference. Point to the individual schools and their performances (or lack thereof) come March Madness. This makes no sense. It's like a heavyweight boxer saying the reason why he lost the title was because his previous opponents (which he won against) were so much stronger. We'll let that sink in...

Yeah. We're confused here. But we can give Jason a mulligan. This time.
