Beginning today, we are using all the same criteria being used by the Selection Committee to pick the bracket the way we believe the Committee will select.  Based on the Committee’s 16-team preview last weekend, we adjusted our bracket to try to mimic their actions.  The major adjustment was increasing the clout of strength of schedules.  Thus, we greatly downgraded all the Mid-Major and Low-Major contenders.

Adjustments Based on Selection Committee’s Reveal

Beginning today, some of our bracketology seedings have been affected by our reaction to the NCAA Selection Committee’s interpretation of the same data we look at.  As the season continues and we have time to look at each resume, we will begin to analyze the teams more based on what we believe the Selection Committee thinks rather than determining which teams deserve to be in the field based on the NCAA’s selection criteria.

When all is said and done, the Committee members vote on the teams in the dance, and human bias obviously comes into play.  Like the best political spin doctors, the committee can always spin the data in favor of teams they prefer to be in the field and then spin the data in opposition to teams they excluded.

How Many Teams Really Belong In The NCAA Tournament

And What Might Be A Better Alternative

Face it: of the 68 teams in the Big Dance in most years, 16 at most are strong enough to win six games in a row and cut the nets after the National Championship Game.  There have been few surprise champions since the field began to expand from 24 to 32 to 40 to 48 to 64 and finally to 68.

As popular as some Cinderella teams have been through  the years, there have also been a lot of missed “games for the ages” when great teams fell as upset victims.

The national champion has come from a limited conference base.  Basically, every national champion ever came from a top 10 conference (or top Independent) or was the overwhelming best team from all the other conferences combined.

Pacific Coast

In case you are not familiar with some of the conference names from the past, here is an explanation for those leagues that don’t immediately come to mind.

Pacific Coast/AAWU/Pac-8/Pac-10/Pac-12: In the late 1950’s, the Pacific Coast Conference had a little tiff with the northern teams and southern teams going to battle over football issues with UCLA.  UCLA and Cal left the Pac Coast, and then the league folded.  Five teams formed the AAWU, while the other three became Independents for a few years.  When it became financially unfeasible to remain apart, the eight teams made up and formed the Pac-8, which expanded to 10 and now 12.  This league was always a power conference, and even though it may be a one-bid league this year and at most a two-bid league, it is still a major conference.

Mountain States Conference: This was a power conference in its time.  BYU, Utah,  and Utah State were rivals to Wyoming, and basketball was highly competitive at these schools.  At this point in time, the MSC was more powerful than the Big 7 (Big 8/Big 12).

Missouri Valley: Unlike today’s MVC, the Valley of the 1940’s through the early 1970’s was on par with today’s Big East.  Oklahoma A&M became Oklahoma State.  Teams like Bradley, Cincinnati, and St. Louis were regular Top 10 members in the older times.  Louisville and Memphis State (now Memphis) kept this league at the top into the early 1970’s.

Metro New York: Who is CCNY?  City College of New York was the Gonzaga of its time with one exception–this team was involved with “point shaving” where players helped make the point spread come in on the side of certain gamblers in exchange for money. This team was the only team to ever win the NIT Championship and NCAA Championship in the same year, which was allowed back then.

California Basketball Association: This is another Gonzaga case, where San Francisco had the Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett of the day in Bill Russell and K.C. Jones.  USF won 60 games in a row.

Metro 7: This was a league created with some of the top teams from big Midwest (and later Southern) cities.  Louisville, Memphis State, Cincinnati, and Georgia Tech were among the charter members, with Florida State, Virginia Tech, and South Carolina among teams added later.

Independents: For many years, upwards of 35 Major College teams chose to not join a conference.  In the East, many of these Independent schools were members of a loose organization known as the ECAC (East Coast Athletic Conference), which was not a real conference but an organization that hosted a post-season tournament to help the NCAA select the top independents in the East.

In the Mideast, Midwest, and Southwest, some of the best basketball for many years was played by the independent schools.  Marquette, Notre Dame, Houston, and Florida State regularly ranked in the AP and UPI polls.

What Does This Mean Today?

The evidence is clear.  The top leagues and the best team outside the top leagues have won every national championship since 1939.  Cinderellas may be fun for a couple days early in the tournament, but eventually they become fodder for a power team.

Rather than include all 353 teams in the NCAA Tournament possible field of 68, why not stick with a 16-team field with 14 or 15 teams coming from the top conferences and either one or two of the top two teams outside the top conferences?

Rather than have a bracketed tournament, what if the 16 teams played “best of” series on home courts in an NCAA Playoff similar to the NBA Playoffs?

In the Rounds of 16 and 8, a best 2 out of 3 would be played with Game 1 and if necessary Game 3 on the higher seeds’ home courts.

In the Round of 4, and in the Championship Round, a best 4 out of 7 would be played with the higher seeds hosting Games 1-2-5-7, and the lower seeds hosting Games 3-4-6.

How It Might Look This Year

Round of 16 (Higher Seed Listed 1st)

Gonzaga vs. Louisville

Duke vs. Iowa St.

Virginia vs. Nevada

Tennessee vs. Virginia Tech

Kentucky vs. Wisconsin

Michigan vs. Texas Tech

Houston vs. Purdue

Michigan St. vs. North Carolina

More Strict Possibility?

Truth be told, this year, half of the teams mentioned above are not in the class of the top teams.  It would be better if Kentucky, Duke, Gonzaga, Tennessee, Virginia, North Carolina, Nevada, and Michigan began the tournament as an Elite 8 and played best of 7 quarterfinals, semifinals, and final series.  One of these eight teams will tear down the nets in April, and for excitement, it would be best if these were the Elite 8.

Maybe break it down into the East and the West and have these pairings.

E1 Duke vs. E4 Michigan

E2 Virginia vs. E3 North Carolina

W1 Gonzaga vs. W4 Nevada

W2 Tennessee vs. W3 Kentucky

How many people would watch best 4 of 7 series with these eight super teams this year?  We strongly believe that this would dwarf the current format in the ratings.  As incredible as the four-team football playoff has been compared to the other bowl games, a tournament like this would do the same team to the First Four and rounds of 64, 32, and 16.

The rest of the nation could then play for NIT, CBI, and CIT bids.  The NIT would be important again like it once was.

Note: The Selection Committee will issue its original report for the top 4 seeds in each region on Saturday.  Based on what they reveal, the PiRates may or may not adjust their Bracketology report beginning Monday.

 

Note 2: Buffalo, Wofford, and Lipscomb  project as much higher seeds than #12, but in order to place no at-large team lower than #11, the three had to be lowered to #12.
