    Expanding NCAA Tourney to 96 teams?

    Good idea? NCAA eyes expanding tourney to 96 teams

    Your thoughts?

    I have no clue how it would be done. I guess the top 32 teams would get a bye in the 1st round?

    I don't like this idea.

    It's fine the way it is. Don't fix something that isn't broken.

    That is an awful idea. The only "positive" is that we'd have a situation like the too many bowl games one.

    Re: Expanding NCAA Tourney to 96 teams?

    The college football post season is essentially worthless now because there are 1000 bowl games. This is doing the same thing to the NCAAs.

    There is something perfect about the way the NCAA tournament currently is.

    Re: Expanding NCAA Tourney to 96 teams?

    That is a horrible idea. Way too many teams, it wouldn't be an honor anymore. The only expansion that I would like is adding 3 more teams. If you are going to have a play-in game to face a #1 seed then there should be one for each region.

    Re: Expanding NCAA Tourney to 96 teams?

    I actually think it should be reduced from 65 to 64 even if it cuts another at-large berth out. The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament is the best thing in all of sports in my opinion because every team no matter how good or bad needs to win the same number of games to reach the Final Four and win the Championship. The upsets, the emotion, the drama -- absolutely amazing!

    Re: Expanding NCAA Tourney to 96 teams?

    I love the way the tourny is set up right now. Everyone has a shot at making the Tourney, and I think this would ruin the moment a little bit. 96 teams is a bit much.

    It would take me an additional 3-4 minutes to fill out my bracket. I don't like this idea.

    This would result in the regular season not having as much meaning or value since it would become so much easier to get to march madness
