ESPN Checks in on the Mid Majors

Recommended Posts

Here is a link to an ESPN article detailing some topics from the Mid Major World





Here is the excerpt about the AE:


"The America East just might feature the country's hottest race for a single bid. After struggling to a 41-74 noncon record last season, teams from this conference scheduled remarkably well, choosing only games they stood a chance to win and staying away from playing too many non-Div. I teams. This season, the AE's winning percentage has consistently hovered around .500. Six of the nine teams have records of .500 or better, including old familiar champions like Vermont (6-3) and Albany (8-4)."

Something else I found interesting in this article.....


Regarding the local "top 25/sweet 16 team"


Most Dissapointing Teams

Siena (Metro Atlantic): Another round of 32 squad that has underachieved is the Saints, who have lived under the mid-major microscope after their crushing 13-over-4 victory over Vanderbilt (in the same Tampa pod that produced the San Diego shocker). A virtually intact team simply hasn't been up to a murderous schedule, going 6-4 with wide losses to Pitt, Tennessee and Oklahoma State. Fran McCaffery's bunch hasn't been able to find compensation for the size disadvantage, something that was overcome with hot shooting and ball control last season. Neither has arrived yet.
