As far as MAC teams go, Ohio U has actually been the most impressive of the conference over the last 10-15 years. Upset Georgetown (who hasn't) as a 14 seed back in 2009 or 2010. And then beat Michigan as a 13 seed back in 2012, I think. They were actually super close to making the Elite 8 that year but lost to UNC in overtime. I went to BGSU and they're the only team to never win the MAC tournament and haven't been to the NCAA since 1968. Pretty pathetic.
Anyway, I'm pulling for SMU to do some damage. I usually root for most mid majors because an NCAA Tourney without at least one good mid major Cinderella team is fucking pointless.
Remember when Gonzaga used to be fun to root for as an underdog?
Butler and Wichita State are a little too on the radar for me nowadays too.
Obviously SMU is my school, but I'd like to see St Mary's do some work as well.
