As Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton told the Charlotte Observer:
"'When it appears that we're always one of the top one or two conferences in the country, it's hard for me to figure out why other conferences or other teams are receiving more bids than us,' said Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton."
What's more, the ACC coaches and administers devised a plan to increase the league's bid in the coming years:
"ACC Commissioner John Swofford has sent a letter to the Division I men's basketball committee requesting that conference strength be added to the list of criteria considered when the NCAA tournament field is selected.
Coaches say they plan to remind the media more often next season about the conference's strength."
