ESPN quotes the UConn coach as not being an advocate of expanding the NCAA Tournament beyond 68 teams.

I thought I’d reply to see whether my account is working. I would not like to see the field expanded.


Same. And also do not want to see field expanded.

We recently expanded the HS Baseball playoffs in Delaware to include any team who wanted to play… talk about crappy baseball for 2 weeks until all the marginal teams get eliminated.

The same 8 are usually left standing after all that, and the playoffs go until the 1st week of June, when they used to finish in May.
