Dodds said, ".... You have a clear path to the national championship game
without stumbling in a (conference) championship game."My
sentiments, exactly. Why mess up your best team's road the the NC with a stupid
conference championship game?This is one of the problems I have with
the NCAA basketball tournament: A year's record means nothing if you get upset.
NOTHING. So, why play the regular season at all? Or keep a record of it?Cinderella stories are fun, but they don't prove who had the best team
for a given season, just who had the hottest or luckiest team in a
tournament.No, the cream doesn't always flow to the top in single
elimination tournaments. Last year proved that.That's why I'd rather
see the NCAA basketball tourney be DOUBLE-elimination. It's technically
possible.And why I don't like conference championship games in
football.And why I'd like only a 4-team BCS playoff for the NC.
The more Texas talks, the less attractive the Big-12 looks.And Utah
to the Big-12? I hope that is a typo. I can hear the guffaws from the hill
now. Why leave stability, equality, more money and beaches for the Big-12 and
instability, inequity, less money and winter snow-drifts?BYU should
think HARD before accepting an invitation to that party.
