Wow...two A-Ten and a Big East team...at home.

 

Quite a coup.

Maybe you should represent non-P-5 schools, and accomplish what they haven't through litigation, including the Attorney General's of numerous states.

In the world where they have:

 

Won 428 games to 206 Losses since 1998.  

 

That's an average of 22.5 W and 10.8 L per year

 

Their worst season in that 19 year period is a .500 record.

 

They have had 16 of 19 years of at least 20+ wins, including a 30 win season.

 

6 NCAA tourney's with a Sweet 16 appearance. They have 4 NCAA tourney wins, including Oklahoma State, Indiana, Alabama, and Pitt (the latter two being #2 and #3 seeds, respectively, and Indiana a #4)

 

8 NIT tourney appearances, including 4 "at-large" berths and 5 wins, including over Villanova and Tulsa.

 

4 CIT tourney appearances.

 

6 MAC Titles.

 

Head Coaches such as Stan Heath, Gary Waters,  and Jim Christian (though I'd take Will Brown over all of them, combined).

 

Oh...and they were ranked 23rd in the AP Poll in 2008 and #12 in the ESPN Coaches Poll in 2002.

 

I love our school...I love what Will Brown has done, and the kids we graduate...but until we achieve that level of success in a better conference, Kent State = High Mid Major and Albany = Mid Major

We are not a high  mid major.  Kent State is a high mid major.  The Kent State-OSU game was scheduled years ago...when OSU stunk.  It's a home-home.  Their biggest home game last year was George Mason.  The year before that....SIU.  Same with the year before

Oh, and they played DIII Hiram college.  They played Oberlin the year before.  They played Malone the year before that.  ALL CRAP DIII teams.  This year, Ohio Christian.

 

Again, perspective folks.  Playing a high major at home is a RARITY.

Kent State > Albany on the national footprint.

 

The SBU game has little to do with SBU and all to do with the Coliseum and Mikhael Prokherov and the management group he heads that runs the Coliseum.

 

You need some perspective.
