Biggest Joke Ever!!
by Chris Flener
Wow, no questions from me on how you came up with this page. It is quite possibly the most idiotic site I've ever seen.
You are obviously a fan of a Big East team. You have construed wins in such a way to make a much weaker conference seem to be the best. The Big East does not have the best winning percentage. The teams who now make up the Big East might, but the conference itself does not.
The total wins are a joke too. 16 teams in the conference will always outweigh the others...over time. However, you are adding history of teams that have only been there for a few years. This distorts the statistics so much it makes this entire site a complete joke!
Your paragraph stating how you compiled it is just as funny. "For our purposes"...that's exactly right, it's not accurate, it's just for your own purposes.
If you are going to put statistics on the internet about the conferences, at least do a bit of research about the game and the topic you are about to discuss.
Editor's Note Chris -- thanks a lot for the submission. It goes a long way in proving the impartiality of this site. I am not a Big East fan; rather an SEC fan. Really surprised you didn't pick up on that. But, gratified as it goes to support our impartiality. Irregardless, as you note, Big East teams "might" have the best record; not the conference. I don't understand what you are saying. A conference is composed of its teams. Therefore, if the teams have the best overall record, so does the conference. I guess you are simply opposed to our giving numbers based on current conference affiliation as opposed to historical. I can understand that, but I think we adequately explain why we do it that way and it's nothing to get too upset about.
If you'd like to post the historical affiliation numbers, please, feel free to do the research, come back and post them. We'll be happy to host those numbers on the site.
Thanks again for your submission.
