As is annual NCAA tradition, we're displaying the overall athletic and men's basketball budget numbers in the mid-vs.-major games. Just like money can buy you a better car or house, it can also buy you a better basketball team. Having large resources allows a program to keep its coaches, recruit a 15-man roster with no weaknesses, and build giant arenas. Schools without money need to find other ways to counter these things, like intelligence and pluck and a never-say-die attitude. If those intangible things weren't effective, then you wouldn't be seeing all these upsets, would you? There is hope for all of us. All figures from the U.S. Department of Education.
