CBB 2012-13: Five Mid-Major Conference Races to Watch

The Big East is in flux, a season away from losing longtime members while adding Memphis, Temple and some spare parts. Its time as the preeminent college basketball power could be nearing an end.

The ACC could witness an uprising, with the likes of NC State, Florida State and Miami having the potential to topple North Carolina and Duke. Unfortunately, UNC and Duke will still command the airwaves and cyberspace.

The Big Ten appears to be a one-horse race unless Indiana's opponents get major contributions from freshmen.

Meanwhile, the mid-major conferences will be where some real fun resides. The urgency that comes from conference members knowing that less than half of the tournament-worthy teams will actually be considered for invitations makes for some tremendous basketball.

These leagues won't be represented nearly as well as they should be in March, but will be extremely fun to watch in January and February.
