Hmm... Call me a scrooge or a gloomy gus or what have you. I mean, I'm sure it was a good game and all, but I have a hard time buying last night's NCAA Men's Basketball Championship Game as "a benchmark game" or "one for the ages" or buying the tournament as a whole as "one of the most memorable March Madnesses in history" when at the end of the day a #1 seeded team won.

Duke does it in 61-59 thriller over Butler

Duke wins NCAA title game for the ages

I mean, what was the point of it all? Couldn't you have just started with Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, and Syracuse? And now you want to expand the tournament to 96 teams? I mean, I guess I see that the only way to dissolve the NIT is to absorb those teams into the tournament, but seriously? You could have a 32 team tournament and not leave out any teams with a legitimate chance at winning.

Oh, but I guess the point of the tournament isn't to crown a champion, but to generate revenue.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
