As for NCAA basketball tourney, it depends on what the goal is.

If the goal is to crown the true/best champion, I would limit it to the top 16 teams at the end of the year.

The problem is that there are 330+ division I-A basketball schools and tons of conferences and the big tournament gives them all at least entrant.

It also makes the tournament go longer and produce more revenue and excitement.

Variance = excitement, but doesn't necessarily produce the best champion of course.

There are of course ways to give the the top 16 teams an edge while including a shot for 64 teams.

the field and weather conditions for the osu-mich game contributed greatly to the lack of offense. i dont think its fair to say they didnt look impressive. they played great.

Also consider the fact that the goal of a game is to win, not to score a ton of points. When you have a lead that you believe you can hold, its a lot of times better to just run the ball safely than have a QB like Boeckman throw it, who might hit 5 TDs or 5 INTs if you do so. Ohio State completely dominated Michigan in that game.

The NCAA tournament has done a pretty good job. There aren't many undeserving champions in recent years.

Hypothetically...

Let's say WVA & Mizzou both win tonight. And let's say Pat White's injury is a little worse than advertised, ending his season.

Would it be horrible if the voters pushed tOSU in front of WVa for the title game?

Think Oregon. A couple of weeks ago, the Ducks were thought to be a top 2 team. Dixon gets hurt, and everything unravels.

Thoughts?

I don't care much about college football. What outcomes should I be rooting for next weekend if my desire is whatever creates the most whining?

[/ QUOTE ]

OU beats Mizzou, Pitt beats WVA. That would put tOSU and UGA in the BCS championship, which would cause approximately four million people to shoot themselves in the head.

As long as most of them are from The South, then I'm OK with that.
