If the Big East is so awesome, why do they have 0 non-conference top 10 RPI wins? In fact, out of all 16 Big East teams not one of them has been able to win against a top 15 RPI non-conference team. There are plenty of examples of Big East teams losing to out of conference top 10 RPI teams. (WV L to Baylor; Gtown L to Kansas; ND L to Mizz; Lville L to Kentucky; the list goes on). I believe the Big East is 0 - 9 against out of conference top 15 RPI teams.
In case you didn't notice, Duke is 3 - 1 against non-conference top 10.
