Expansion came too late for these teams

4/22/2010

A few more random thoughts on a 68-team NCAA tournament.

This list represents my "first three out" teams for the past six years. All could have been in the tournament in their respective seasons. Sadly for them, expansion didn't come in time for their tourney dreams to be realized.

My condolences to the following:

  • Air Force (2007)

  • Arizona State (2008)

  • Buffalo (2005)

  • Cincinnati (2006)

  • Creighton (2009)

  • Drexel (2007)

  • Hofstra (2006)

  • Illinois (2010)

  • Illinois State (2008)

  • Maryland (2005)

  • Mississippi State (2010)

  • Missouri State (2006)

  • Ohio State (2008)

  • Penn State (2009)

  • Saint Joseph's (2005)

  • Saint Mary's (2009)

  • Syracuse (2007)

  • Virginia Tech (2010)
