I agree, yes this helps, but as I said..To little, to late..The damage has


been done. Remember I've been advocating the 16 team tourney since the early 2000's-back then there were 11 conf, and 5 at large in my model. I'm generally for it, but, as I said, I liked the old days-the conference games that mattered....Now it's going to be half determined with pre-season polls to a large degree-like the bias against the pac12. But I completely like having more teams involved, especially how the bowls are now so secondary/pointless, compared to times past. If we are going to make bowls irrelevant, might as well have a bigger tourney.
I also don't understand some of the mainstream media's complaints about extra games. They could easily eliminate CCG's or make other adjustments. Then I hear complaints saying it's like a pro schedule, but we now have 5 states that allow paying college athletes...Which is being challenged for expansion through congress-see mark Few......My biggest issue is the east coast bias, which will always schew the polls, and teams involved.
