When it comes to the tournament, we are all influenced by out own personal biases. Perhaps you think a particular conference is strong, or they are week, or a team is strong or not because of the few times you watched them, or your history with a team. Maybe you don’t like a style or you are just going off of your gut. There are a lot of factors.
Whatever his factors, Charles Barkley is decidedly not fond of the Big Ten, and it proves with his bracket. Somehow, CBS/Turner affiliated itself with Bleacher Report, and they put together this video of Chales cobbling together his bracket.
“The Big Ten plays like they football teams. Slow. No talent”
All right then. The Big Ten has already exceeded his expectations (Illinois beat Colorado) but he has lost a Final Four team. This year, so far, it appears that the Mountain West was the overrated conference and perhaps the A-10 was the underrated one.
[UPDATE]: Thank you, Bleacher Report, for your teeny tiny video player
