Who's Talking Bull: Is the MAC starting to rebuild..

The State of MAC Basketball: You Have To Feel Good About It - Hustle Belt
The depth is there, and with these seven teams — throw in Bowling Green because they expect to return damn near everybody — you're going to (hope to) see a much better showing in the nonconference, the BracketBusters, and perhaps what this whole conversation boils down to, and what the conference has been chasing all along: multiple NCAA tournament bids. Having two teams reach the CIT quarterfinals is not the goal, but it's far better than what transpired last year: an NCAA tournament 14-seed (and victory), an NIT victory, and a CBI first-round exit. Neat, but not enough.

FalconBlog--Triumphs and Trials in the BGSU Falcon Nation: 3 MAC Teams Still playing

VCU's run is a thing of beauty - Jerry Sullivan - The Buffalo News
Score another win for the "mid-majors" against the mighty BCS conferences. VCU took down a team from the Pac-10, Big East and Big Ten. Next up: Florida State of the ACC. Win that one and they might get a chance against Kansas of the Big 12.

UB enjoys seeing how other half lives - UB Men's Basketball - The Buffalo News
If there's a downside to the University at Buffalo's Mid-American Conference affiliation, the extensive travel would be it. No other school in the conference is less than three hours away by bus. Learning to travel well can be as much a key to the season as X's and O's.
