I have not seen the WBB NCAA brackets nor the WNIT. How did they work out for C-USA?

My understanding is that the NCAA pays out according to the teams invited and the number of games they play in the tournament. I have not done a count of the P5 teams vs the G5 teams in this year's tournament nor how they are matched up. It may be that it is just as simple as "the rich getting richer" and the others getting the leftover scraps. By pairing the better P5 teams against weaker G5 teams (thereby eliminating them quickly) thereby allowing P5 teams more games, the bigger payouts will go to P5 teams. They may also have matched G5 teams against each other reducing their number as effectively.

13-loss Syracuse and 15-loss Alabama, both of whom were sub-.500 in conference, getting at-large bids is a crock of 01-rivals

This was a great tweet thread on the exclusion of MTSU

The one thing he said that rings truest is for the mid majors the qualifications to get in are all over. Nobody can figure out what to do because it randomly changes every time.

One of the best suggestions I’ve heard this season is the mid major conferences still hold their tournament, but if the one seed does not win, they host the winner of the tournament in a one game playoff for the auto bid. It would take a little work to implement and get used to, but would protect the conference winners.
