The Curious Case of Murray State
Murray State, a team beloved by many mid-major apologists, went down in heartbreaking fashion to Belmont last weekend, and will discover its ultimate fate tonight. The consensus seems to be that the Racers had a great year but their résumé just isn’t quite up to snuff. That said, crazier things have happened (I’m looking at you, 2006 Air Force).
Also, the notion of Murray State as the little guy ignores their status as the really, really big guy in the OVC.

The system is working against Murray State, which is evidence that the system is flawed. Column: http://t.co/aov8fqsn2l

I'm not anti Murray State getting in, but I'm not going to sob for a team w a 242 SoS and a loss to Xavier by 27.
