The Atlantic 10 hype bubble bursts

Another conference that is cyclically overhyped (and underhyped at other times) is the Altantic 10 (actually has 14 teams). Two of the overhyped teams are out, Richmond fell at the hands of the perpetually ignored Saint Mary's, while the booksmart spoiled brats of millionaires managed to DESTROY the overhyped Temple team.

The East Coast Hype is of course a regular thing. The Big East and ACC get most of the "hype juice", but during years where the some of the big ACC/BigEast names are troubled (UConn, North Carolina), they have unused hype at ESPN, which eventually "flows" to the Atlantic 14 :-)
