    With the 68 team Tourney coming up in a couple of months

    How many of you think that mid majors will get a larger role in the tournament? Or do you think more average teams from power conferences will take up these extra spots?

    Since I believe it was a stated goal to get more mid-major participation I think they will get more deserving mid-major teams in. I also think they will put in some mid-major teams that beat no one of merit outside their weak conference over more deserving "average" teams from very tough conferences.

    My opinion.

    I think this will be an excuse to bump all the mid majors down a couple of seeds. The play in game already set the precedent. 2 conference champions who earned automatic bids shouldn't be involved in a play in game, they are already in.
