    You don't need to feel anything about it. They earned it.

    They beat the two best teams in the Big West! Crazy story, and what a way to get into the tournament for the first time ever.

    Mixed feelings here too. I feel for those teams in smaller conferences who do the work all season then in one game get their chance to dance shattered due to a one bad loss at the end.

    the only ppl with any right to be upset about Cal Poly getting in are the other big west teams, their bid is as legit as ours.

    Probably not. The Big West was likely getting only one team anyway, this doesn't change that.

    Re: cal poly in the tourny

    The only ways to fix this would be for a conference to vote to send its regular season champ and make their tournament meaningless, or, for the ncaa to expand the the tournament to 96 teams and take guarantee regular season and tornament winners get to go.
