The Tournament

They announced the brackets yesterday; I have nothing to say about any of the seedings, except for this: I don't want to hear any suggestions about, say, expanding the tournament to twice as many teams, or getting rid of automatic bids, or any other radical modification to the rules. The tournament is great the way it is. Don't monkey with it.

The day after the BCS pairings are announced, everyone always complains that the wrong teams are in the championship game. The after the NCAA brackets come out, the big complaint is which 12th seed did or didn't make it. Which is a worse problem to have?

I'd still get rid of the 64/65 play-in game.
