Next to the Olympics and the IAAF World Championships, the NCAA “March Madness” Basketball Tournament is my favorite event.
It’s simple… all you have to do is go 6-0 on 3 consecutive weekends to win the National Championships.
Make that 7-0 for Eight teams—the four lowest-seeded automatic qualifiers and the four lowest-seeded at-large teams—play in the First Four (the games formerly known as "play-in games")
So Go Hard or Go Home. It doesn’t matter if you are 26-0 or 16-13, just throw out those damn stats and start with a fresh slate.
When I was in High School, the NCAA Basketball Tournament had 32 teams. How long will it be before 128 teams make the Tournament?
The tournament is a single-elimination format with no consolation games. If this were the Olympics, you would have the 2 losers of the semi-finals play in a useless “bronze medal game” (women’s boxing excluded).
Interesting concept for more TV revenue, no?
