How to Kill a Sport...


Increase the Championship Tournament to 96 teams.

If this past weekend has proven anything, the NCAA does NOT need to increase the tournament from 64 teams to 96.

Sure there will always be the handful of teams (and their fans) that could argue that such and such team should have made the field but these 64 truly do represent the best of the best.

Given the fact that a bottom seed has NEVER (even after this past weekends cliff hanger) beaten a top seed, what good would adding more do to the tournament except eliminate the chances of having some true "Cinderellas" make the sweet 16 or final 4.

96 teams would do nothing except let more bad teams in. And who needs to watch that?

Totally agree. Most conferences get an automatic spot for their tournament winner. If you think you deserve to get into the NCAA tournament, then win your conference tourney.

By the way, if a #16 ever beats a #1, my bet would be that Kansas will the #1 seed loosing to a bottom seed.

I concur. If the NCAA expands to 96 teams, schmucks like Digger Phelps will whine about that "terrific" 97th team that got snubbed and how the NCAA must expand the tournament to 128 teams. Soon the talent in the tournament will be watered down and resemble the pathetic football bowl system.
