Mountain West Conference

Why does this site consider the MWC a mid-major conference? They've had the #1 or #2 conference rpi throughout the season. They're probably going to get five teams into the NCAA Tournament. This is the equivalent of calling the SEC a non-BCS conference. Can somebody please elaborate?

To be fair, the SEC this year

To be fair, the SEC this year is worse than every BCS conference so that second part might not be that much of a stretch. But the smaller non-BCS schools are always going to get that mid-major label until they consistently put 4-5 teams in the tourney on a year in year out basis. Not saying I disagree with you, just my reasoning behind the term.
