Gonzaga is preseason No. 1, BYU No. 9
What a load of nonsense."Mid-Majors Hoops Poll"?These teams are all D-1 programs. This attempt to smear programs should not be
encouraged by the Des News.Stop playing into Roy Kramers Caste
System.BCS was bad enough, it's ruined Conferences and College
Football, now it's infecting College Hoops.Don't play along D-News,
don't play along.
Bluto,Your BYU is just new to this poll. It is nothing new. This
poll has been around for 13 years. It is not insulting like you may think. Its a
good poll for the smaller programs in the small conferences to be recognized.
Well, it's nice to see some respect on paper, but the Wildcats need to deliver
on the court. With the talent they have, they should have big expectations this
year. It will be fun to watch them in the Purple Palace. GO WILDCATS!@Bluto,I see your point, what makes a team a mid-major (conference
I guess)? There are some terrible teams in big conferences, why does this
decree they are better just for being in a big conference. One of my favorite
illustrations of my point is when the NCAA Tournament committee gave more
at-large invites to "small schools" than traditionally in the past.
That year, there were more upsets than any other year. The Old Boys Club would
rather have a 15-15 Michigan team in than a 27-3 USU team. Money is flat out
ruining sports. We don't need labels to divide or to kiss the rings of
Herbstreet, May, & Co. and hope they take mercy on us.
"BCS was bad enough, it's ruined Conferences and College Football, now it's
infecting College Hoops."Amen!@WildcatI
agree, it's nice to see some attention & respect on paper but I can't take
another season of lack-luster showings against in-state teams or when hosting
another BSC tournament. However, I'm having a very difficult time containing my
excitement and expectations after the Purple-n-White scrimmages combined with
knowing the talent on this years team. Anything short of 2+ in-state wins, a
20+ win season, a Big Sky Championship, and a little noise in the dance will be
a major disappointment to me. At a minimum-- this year and next-- the
(Big)Sky's the limit for the Wildcats! GO WEBER!
Weber looks downright dangerous this year! That team last year learning to play
without relying on Lillard and now having LIllard back is scary to me, I'm a
little worried about the Ags playing them at Weber!
Late but just read this article. Does this mean that u is a major? What a joke,
a bcs for basketball is trying to work its way in. Pretty soon there will be a
aq for basketball as well. Tired of $$$ ruling and some going along with it.
