    Just look at No. 10 Davidson this year... everyone's rooting for them because they're such a huge underdog.

    Because every conference and every team deserves a CHANCE. George Mason was close 2 years ago. They knocked off a No. 1 seed, and if it wasn't for that powerhouse Florida team, they would have won it all.

    In NCAAF they wouldn't have even qualified for a BCS Postseason Exhibition Match.

    64 team tournament in the NCAAF even though a ridicious idea in terms of logistics, would equal more revenue than the current system. It would generate more excitement, more people watching, and more ad revenue.

    Ouch. You should have entered our competition. You might have had a decent shot, considering that the person leading it right now (me) hardly ever watches college basketball.

    LOL, yes. I am so screwed by the early rounds, since I had Duke and Georgetown in my Final 4.

    There should be more teams in the tournament just for the excitement factor. Plus it would generate more TV time and more ad revenue. I don't care if those low seeds don't have a chance, it's still exciting to watch them compete and maybe an upset happens here and then. That's why the tournament esp the first few rounds are great to watch IMO.

    Because almost ever year you have 9-14 seeds that make the sweet 16 even have someone like George Mason make it to the final 4. It's all about creating excitement and making money off betters.. For sure need to keep 64 teams as a non body could knock off a top ranked team that otherwise might have won the national championship

    So why do we need 64 teams? Isn't the goal to find a champion? If seeds 9-16 have no chance (as they don't) then we can eliminate one round.

    But wait, we can't do that because the automatic bids generate money from their conference championships. So it is about money why we have 64 teams n the tourney.

    Good to know the BCS isn't alone. The first round is a total waste in the NCAA Basketball tournament. If you are objective (and hate the BCS) then I hope you see the light of how hypocritical this is.

    Villinova as a 8 seed was the lowest seed to ever win a tourney.
