I like it because the tourney is my favorite sports time of the year. Being bigger is better. More upsets, more matchups and more do or die games.
Well, I think it's dumb.

I don't fault you for that. It's up to each person. Since i don't watch mush college basketball before the tourney, a bigger tourney is better for me.

Those 1 vs 80 games seem real appealing.

The good thing is...you are not required to watch them.

It isn't that big a deal. The game(s) are also for the players. In every state, every HS team goes to a district
tournament in basketball and in baseball.

A tournament with everybody in it...allows everybody a chance to participate in it. Allows there student bodies
to attend a one and done tourney.

And remember...the first nite the best 165 teams don't participate. It's teams seeded 166-347. There will be
a lot of good games. It will be good basketball. I'll tell you another thing...you will see better "fundamental"
basketball in those play-in games than you will in a title game.

What did our pros finish in the last World Championship games,,,7th place? We didn't have our superstars
playing and our pros were beaten because of a lack of fundamentals. Those Europeans were better at fundamentals
than our pros.

I'll pay as much attention to this as I do Basketball World Championships, none.


I go to a tourney weekend, somewhere, most every year. Won't happen if they do this.

It's the only way UNC qualifies

It's hard to get fired for missing the NCAA Tournament if everyone's allowed in the NCAA Tournament.

I'd make it double elimination so worse teams, who never would've qualified for the real tournament, don't get lucky
