Stripping "Mid-Major"

Here is an article by Jason King of Yahoo! Sports from yesterday that explains how many strong and emerging non-BCS conference programs have grown furious with the infamous mid-major tag.

To date, fears that have become realized as a result of the discriminatory nomenclature include the following:
  1. Loss of recruits to struggling programs in BCS Conferences
  2. Annual snubs from the NCAA tournament equaling foregone revenue
  3. Inability to leverage traditional "home & home" series against BCS schools, namely the powerhouse programs
