The NCAA gets about one chance a decade to fix its bracket screw-ups, and this is it. The ignominy of the 64/65 game is now mercifully over, and the opportunity arises to show the nation what big-hearted, warm, fuzzy folks the power conferences are. [insert chuckle].

Simply placing the bottom eight seeds in the play-in puts OVER 1/4 OF ALL CONFERENCE CHAMPS in the preliminaries. I can't imagine this kind of denigration is acceptable even to the avaricious Big XII and SEC. They're going to get their added participation money, that really should allow them the luxury to at least appear generous while they shovel the cash in. The preliminary round needs to be among the lowest eight at-large seeds.

Otherwise, this year's Tuesday night grovelfest would have included (8 of 9) Lehigh, UCSB, Vermont, North Texas, E Tenn State, Morgan State, Ark-Pine Bluff, Winthrop and Robert Morris. I doubt those ratings would make Turner very happy.....
