  More blogging on the NCAA Tournament
Illini Wonk had planned to spend more time on the blog tonight, but time slipped away and, well, you don't want to hear it anyway. Rest assured, much more is coming this week.

In the meantime, Big Ten Wonk has followed the same trajectory as his beloved conference. Under-rated and good all season and now shining during March and April. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the Big Ten the most teams in the Elite 8 (Illinois, MSU and Wisconsin), half of the Final Four and the best record in the NCAA Basketball Tournament. His 2,800-word (that's right, twenty-eight hundred) post today has more news on the good half of the Final Four than CBS Sportsline and combined.

You may remember a challenge played by the Big Ten several months ago, when it didn't matter, against another conference that used to be considered the best: the ACC. Well, they did get one team into the NCAA Final Four and it's the North Carolina Tar Heels. The Heels will be looking to defend their conference honor by possibly playing the two best teams in the Big Ten. You can follow what's left of their conference at ACC BasketBlog. (You may remember their carnival of hoopsters from a few days ago that mentioned yours truly as the place to find Illini blogging news).

More to come tomorrow...
