As of this update, the Big East only shows up with one bid, Villanova. This is the first time in approximately forever that one could say this about the Big East. It is only a temporary situation: both St. John's and DePaul were dropped out of the S-Factor for losing this week to SEC teams (Kentucky and Auburn), but they'll probably be back soon.
If anything, this only highlights how stacked
the SEC is this year. Five SEC teams are still undefeated (Tennessee,
Kentucky, Arkansas, Georgia, South Carolina) and three more have only
one loss (LSU, Mississippi State, Missouri). The conference as a whole
stands at 108-22 right now, which is the second least amount of losses
for a conference this year. The Big 12 has one less loss but four fewer
teams (and 48 fewer wins).
