I think the Big East has very good depth. I think the bubble teams in the Big East, especially UL and UConn have the ability to beat any team in the country. With the exception of the Big East, and maybe even the Big 10 (very high on OSU, Purdue, and MSU) I think this is a very mediocre season in college basketball. Don't get me wrong, you have some top teams that are good (Kansas and UK come to mind) but there is very little depth. The ACC is especially disappointing, when you consider UNC is the defending national champions and I think Duke is one of the most over rated teams this season.
