What’s one extra round of games for the Men’s NCAA Basketball Tournament? Other than a blatant expression of greed, I mean. From WANE TV :
INDIANAPOLIS – Motivated in part by George Mason’s remarkable Final Four run last season, college basketball coaches this week will urge the N-C-A-A to expand its most lucrative championship event.
The coaches, who are meeting in Orlando, Florida during the men’s and women’s basketball committee meetings, say they would like to see the tournament’s 65-team field double. But they’d still be happy with a smaller victory.
This seems like a lot of effort to make certain Rick Barnes’ streak of tournament appearances stays alive.
