    Mid Majors: Regular Season Champions

    It looks like Iona is going to lose today and it brings up a point about the NCAA selection committee. How much emphasis do you think the NCAA puts on teams winning their conference regular season? A lot of really good mid majors win their conference, yet get beaten in their conference tournaments and don't make the NCAA's. I find it a little unfair, but I have a bias towards the small schools. Thoughts?

    I think there is an option for the conference to award the a****id to the regular season champ ala the Ivy league. It's their option to have a tournament.

    Maybe they should make another tournement for mid majors that win the regular season, but not the tourney.

    Re: Mid Majors: Regular Season Champions

    I look at it kind of like The Masters. The field isn't all the best golfers that it could be, but the parameters are there to get an invitation. I believe those quirks make it better then it would be otherwise.

    Re: Mid Majors: Regular Season Champions

    Conference tournaments suck for the best teams in the conference.

    A team proves they are the best team over a comprehensive 16-game schedule, but then have to play three games in three days in a one-and-done crapshoot.

    The Ivy League does it right.

    There's 2 sides to that though. The best team over a season isnt necessarily the best team right now. We're a great example of that.

    If the NCAA ever goes to 96 we probably wont have to worry about it anymore, tourney and regular season winners will get bids.

    Automatic bid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Since the 2005 purchase of the NIT by the NCAA, automatic bids are now awarded to all regular season conference champions who did not win their conference tournament.
