NCAA Basketball: Mississippi at Middle Tennessee State Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

After a week of good wins, bad losses, and general hysteria, ranking the 25 best mid-majors was a tough task. Ultimately, Loyola Chicago ended up in the top 10, Gonzaga and Nevada stayed in the top two despite losses, and five new teams entered the poll.

On our latest podcast, we break down our thought process as we put our ballots together, then we try and make sense of the basketball landscape.

Later, we discuss Middle Tennessee's at-large chances, talk about the problems of the mid-major bubble, and admire Texas Southern's routinely absurd non-conference schedule.
