There are FOUR COUNT 'EM FOUR teams from mid-major conferences (Horizon League, C-USA, WAC and MWC) in the top 13 of the new ESPN/USA Today men's basketball coaches poll. Welcome to the post-George Mason world, folks. (I still say that if Butler - up to its highest rank EVER (#9), BTW - can get through the remainder of their schedule with one or two more losses tops, they're a top-4 - meaning protected - seed, with Nevada not far behind.) I LOVE THIS GAME!
