Anybody know what the reason is behind the 4 or 5 year ban on postseason participation for newly classified DI schools? Seems a bit ridiculous. 

Now that the NCAA can’t stop players from making money they need something else to wield their authority over. Dirtbag D3 schools wanting to elevate to D1 basketball are the new whipping boys.

They are 6-2 on the season so far, and have yet to be blown out in their 2 losses.

It's the archaic rules from the transfer portal past. You use to have to sit out a year when you transferred from 1 D1 school to another. You could however transfer from D1 to D2 and play immediately. As I understand it the rule is in place because people feared a bunch of D1 players would transfer to a D2 school that is moving up to get around the 1 year sitting out rule.

 

Not saying I agree with the rule, but thar was the rationale behind it.

BG lost to some school named “Queen” tonight. 
 

Does not appear BG will be 2023 MAC champions, my friends. They don’t even seem to be fighting, to the end.

Definitely not magnifico. They're just some poor boys, nobody loves them.

Queens is Marshall's only loss thus far.  Queens is a small university (2300 students) in Charlotte.  Their teams play in the ASUN Conference.

Flashes up 14-2 on South Dakota State in the blink of an eye. Amazing. 

Being objective they have looked like the best team in the MAC so far. Thankfully there is still a lot of season left to play and you don't get any prizes for being the best MAC team in November/December.

Pinky's cheeks are rarely rosey in a positive way in March.

We'll see.  PCCC looks pretty much unstoppable.  They are hanging with the best of the best.   Likely sweep the MAC

The MAC has never had an undefeated BB team in its history, I believe. Certainly none since the 1970s. If that Big Dog-Cheatum team couldn't do it ... or that PCCC-Elite 8 team couldn't do it, and none of the recent high-scoring Toledo teams couldn't do it ... I wouldn't be putting my $$$ on any MAC team doing it. Certainly not making that bet in December.

 

Now if things look different come Valentine's Day ... then maybe I go to the bank.

a few good MAC games on tap today.  I may watch Ball State v the Dukes.  KD's team off to a good start.  Also, Ohio v Marshall

That schedule was made for "off to a good start". Do. Not. Miss. That.

The Dukes really needed this chicken soup for the soul. They're in the middle of a 9 game(!) home stand. Marshall, who needs a punch in the nose, is next.

Your first link is just CBS personal rankings. NET rankings are published on the NCAA official website.
