Derek Robertson

I'm currently in Grad school at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, getting my Master's degree in Sports Management. Sports are a huge part of my life, pretty much what I do. I've played sports as long as could walk, and haven't stopped yet. I'm involved with the athletic department at SIU and love college athletics. I'm a huge fan of the Chicago Cubs, and the Chicago Bears, but college basketball is where I spend most of my time these days. Does this make me an "expert?" Not at all, but I have a few opinions on some topics!

This past Saturday was ESPN's BrackBusters made for tv event. This was the the 5th year of the special weekend, made to showcase the so called "Mid-Majors" to a national audience. This was a great concept that the heads at the worldwide leader came up with 5 years ago. Now, I think that it is time to tweak this even just a little bit. While this has really boosted the NCAA resumes of some teams, there are some that it just doesn't do a whole lot for anymore. I'm not a fan of the "Mid-Major" label that gets thrown around way too much these days in college…
