Of those listed, NO player from Gonzaga, Memphis and Xavier is listed. That is because these schools, according to the writer, are too established to be considered "mid major". I agree.

Anyway, pretty good list. Wish the Zags could have landed Babbit, he's a beast.

Thanx, Omaha.

While I haven't seen all these young men play, I believe that Butler, after this year, might be added to the teams "too established to be considered mid major."

The year of the Bulldog.

Go ZAGS!

Agreed my friend - Butler certainly has established itself lately and will again this year to be sure.

I wouldn't have guessed my alma matter, BYU, would be considered a mid-major. Obviously the level of success GU has achieved over the last 10 years is higher, but that surprises me. It just makes me think about the thread from a few weeks ago talking about how nice it would be to see GU basketball in the MWC.

By definition a team that plays in one of the 5 biggest basketball arenas in the United States of America is not a "mid major"......

BYU's athletic department budget surpasses many BCS schools.

In my humble opinion, Gonzaga is a mid major program, and will always be one. Doesn't mean we can't play with the big boys and someday reach a final four and possibly beyond, but we are what we are. Small school in the WCC will always be at a disadvantage, and we always be a mid major.

Memphis IMO isn't considered a Mid Major. It all depends on your definition of "mid major" because technically it's up to personal interpretation, although just winning games and having success doesn't change who you are as a program. Non BCS tiny conference, tiny private school, =mid major.

I take pride in being the most successful mid major of all time. No other mid major program has had a decade of success like this, it is absolutely mid boggling was coach Few and company have been able to accomplish. It has never been done before.

BYU's football embarrassment at home against Florida State showed they are not BCS worthy. Sorry.

One of the Arguments made by Boise State football fans is:

If we were in a BCS conference, our recruiting would elevate to that of a BCS school.

I think Gonzaga is already there.
