There is no longer any doubt that the ladies would not have gotten an at-large bid if they had failed to win the MAAC Tournament. Case in point: Bowling Green was the Mid American Conference regular season champion, then lost to Ball State in the MAAC title game by four points. They were snubbed after finishing with a 28-4 record, the exact same record that Marist would have had if they had fallen to Canisius.

OOPS! Of course I meant that Bowling Green lost the MAC title game.

No shot is right.

On the other hand, what does a mid have to do to be recognized? More and more it seems "size trumps performance" in the collective mind of the selection committee.

I'm sure the committee feels they "recognize mids" by handing out an at-large or two to the A10 and Mountain West and occasionally one more somewhere - like VCU got one this year as second place in the CAA. Problem is of course most of us don't play in these leagues.

BGSU got totally screwed, but it's just another one on the pile with past WBB omissions of Gonzaga, Montana, WKU, etc.
