The big boys aren't the big boys this year

I know Towson has a quality, highly competitive program, but their win over Loyola yesterday adds to a trend early this season: the big dogs aren't the big dogs this year. With ALL of the ACC teams having been upset by what on paper look like "lesser" programs from High Point to Richmond, getting into the tournament could be a mad scramble. A team like ND really can't afford any more upset losses, because you can't count on wins in conference giving a boost compared to someone else's wins in the SoCon, Colonial, Big East, etc.
