Even though they are 1-2 that

Even though they are 1-2 that UC Davis team you mentioned could be dangerous they scored over 60 in the 2nd half in that upset of sacramento st. and they were close to beating a ranked OKie St. team. They play at Nevada tomorrow and might have a chance to sneak around the chicken coop and beat them

Good list. I'm biased though

Good list. I'm biased though to Florida Gulf Coast cuz my cousin plays for them but they are a legit squad. I think they will win the Atlantic Sun and surprise some people come March. They made it to the championship game last year in their first year of eligibility. I went to the Duke game and they hung in there in the beginning but Plumlee was too much for them down low.

The best mid majors are

The best mid majors are Gonzaga, UNLV, and St. Louis if you just want to go by definition of not top 6 conferences but I think he wanted under the radar teams.

I think MID MAJOR should be emphasized

MVC and the zags dont qualify.

the MVC is consistently one of the top 10

conferences in college basketball and often sends more then 1 team to the dance. butler for instance plays in a mid major conference but they are not a midmajor program, their is a difference once you establish yourself and your program.

The MVC is most definately a

The MVC is most definately a mid-major conference. The title "mid-major" has nothing to do with how good a few teams in that league are and all to do with what market, what size and how much coverage they get on a national level.

Try telling Indiana State that they play in a major conference, and see what their reaction is. I don't think your "rule" apply at a national level. Tell MVC recruiters that their conference means as much as ACC or Big East. They are a Mid-Major through and through.
