    If true, that's complete BS. Don't **** with a perfect system. If you want to **** with something, try football.

    Re: NCAA tournament AKA March Madness expanding to 96 teams

    You already have teams that don't belong in the tournament with the 64 team field and now you are adding more average teams? Doesn't make much sense

    Re: NCAA tournament AKA March Madness expanding to 96 teams

    It use to be an incredible honor to be asked to play in the NCAA tournament. Now if you are mediocre, you will be in the tournament. Why fix what isn't broken? Who plays in the NIT now?

    We still wouldn't make it into the tournament. Sorry, had to be said. Please continue.

    Re: NCAA tournament AKA March Madness expanding to 96 teams

    Imagine the number of coaches who actually win more than one championship under that bracket. You would be considered a legend if you could accomplish that.

    Re: NCAA tournament AKA March Madness expanding to 96 teams

    The NCAA confirmed that bidders would be interested in 96 teams, so they’re going with it.
    All you need to know right there. The NCAA, exploiting student athletes since 1905.

    Re: NCAA tournament AKA March Madness expanding to 96 teams

    The ncaa tournament is still one of the most selective postseasons out there even with the change.

    NCAA Tourney (asis) 64/347 18.4%
    NCAA Tourney (new) 96/347 27.6%
    NCAA Football (I-A) 68/120 56.6%
    NFL Playoffs 12/32 37.5%
    MLB playoffs 8/30 26.6
    NBA playoffs 16/30 53.3

    Making the bottom end of the NCAA tourney will be equivalent to making the NIT today. The real question is, if you're in that 66-96 range, would you rather be in the tourney and be done early, or be in the NIT and have a shot at playing many more games?

    I'm not a fan of half the teams getting a bye...So IMO, 64 or 128. Which 128 is probably way too many.
