Nice. I wonder how many of the pre-season mid-major top 25 teams made the tourney last year.

Hmmm.... too lazy to actually do the research on it, but considering most of them come from a handful of conferences (MVC, CUSA, WCC, Horizon, etc) and there were only, what, 3 or 4 mid-major at large bids last year... a lot of them didn't, sadly.

What!!?? Why take a mid-major when you can take a 6th or 7th place Big-10 or SEC team? Suspect

Like Soccer, the BCS controls 60% of the votes.

The difference here is that the games are worth a cool million or more per game.

Mystery solved.
