    What if there was more at large 12 seeds?

    for this First Four....

    I know the system is design for 2 games between 16 seeds, one for a 12 vs 12 seed and the other an 11 vs 11, but lets say in the future that there are more at large 12 seeds, what do they do then?

    Huh??? Not sure what you are asking?

    There are 4 games with 8 teams vying to be a 16 seed. Not sure where you get 11 vs 11 and 12 vs. 12

    They could go back to just 64 teams. I hate having these extra games.

    I think that it should be all at large teams anyways. I would be ****** if my school won an automatic bid to the tournament and didn't even get to travel to one of the pod sites.

    +1 and 12/12 games are typically more interesting to the casual fan anyway.

    Automatic bid just gets you into a 68 team tourney. After that, seeds should just be based on who is best to who is worst. The lowest seeded teams *always* are the ones without the first round bye, in almost any tournament. Just happens that almost everyone has a bye in this situation, until we expand the tourney. Doing it otherwise would be like the big 12 tourney giving the bottom 4 seeds a bye and letting them all play the winners of #1vs8, 2vs7 and so on.

    If #4 team in conference A is better than #1 in conference B, the #1 team should be playing the extra game. That is the fairest solution due to the fact that sometimes being #4 in one conference is more of an achievement than being #1 in another.

    I guess it shows how closely I am paying attention to these early round games.
