They got an at-large because VCU failed to win their conference tournament. The same would have been true for the MAC had Buffalo lost to CMU or BG. Both conferences had 1 at-large caliber team. If you don't believe me,  just look at Buffalo's seed compared to VCU, dumbass.

AGAIN your words not mine You said the MAC had the best season in 20 years. HOW you dumb f

That's factually correct. Our tournament champion got a 6 seed. I believe Kent got a 9th seed in '02. Pretty much every other year since 2000 our conference champion has been a 12-15 seed. Which year(s) since 2000 are you trying to say are better than this year?

Kent was a 10 seed that year but all you are talking about are Conference Champions = 1 Team  thats it. 

In the past 15 years there have been many MAC worthy enough of an at large bid and thats my argument. 

The MAC continues to get shitted on period.

When I'm saying this was the best year the MAC has had in 20 years I'm not referring just to Buffalo. I'm looking as the conference as a whole spots 1-12. Yes, there have been some years in the last 20 years where the MAC's 2nd best team was better than Toledo this year.

When I said the MAC was rated as the ~8th best conference by Kenpom/NET/RPI etc. that factors all 12 teams in.

So there are no conferences ranked lower than the MAC that have at large bids?

The MWC is the only conference ranked below that MAC that had 2 at-large caliber teams. All the others were the product of bid thieves.

Just because we don't make it our lives' missions to be the Eeyores of ZipsNation and P!$$ and moan to the point that we're virtually unreadable does not mean we're fine with the status of the MAC.

Honestly, I feel a good place to start is by programs like EMU, NIU, and Miami actually start to invest in their basketball programs. Miami was once the face of MAC. It's incredible to see how much they've fallen in the last 20 years.

My question was directed more at the critics who never offer a solution to the problem.  Of course they are all too often the same people who say the program is worthless yet expect the same worthless program to be of value to a better conference.

Yes, I know who it was directed towards. I just figured I'd actually provide something towards having a productive discussion instead of endless rants.

Oh how dare anyone speak out and bring attention to the blatant disparity we have been a victim of for decades.

Not at all.  I was naively yet optimistically  asking for your solution.
