I'm pretty sure Weber State would've put up a much better fight. Just ask EWU.
There are about 10-15 teams with winning records since that seems to be the objective minimum this year, who would have done better than A&M. They were a good team in their conf, like Davidson was in it's. If they had won their conf and it sent a team to the playoffs, I would be fighting tooth and nail for them. But we are talking about an at large. Different ballgame altogether.
