I'm just glad this won't take up any days other than Tuesday of my week.

Really should just go to a single bye for the top seed, wed-sat games. Or play 3-4 first round games Tuesday (maybe the 2,3,4 seeds) and the rest on Wednesday.

I just really hate the double bye configuration.

agreed

first seed gets a bye to day 3, 2/15, 4/13, 3/14 play day 1, 8/9, 7/10, and 6/11, and 5/12 play day 2. Gives most benefit to 1 seed, but still some benefit to 2-4.

Or say fuck it and run all 7 day 1 games back to back starting at 8AM

I'd invite the top 10 teams and have 7-10 and 8-9 play in the "first round".

No lower seed advances to the quarterfinals. What a fucking surprise. Miami doesnt count.

i am naive

look at yesterday, syracuse (a ny team) was at 12:00, duke (a nj team) was at 2:00, why not play those in the evening?

today you have unc-maimi at 12 and duke-louisville at 2, if you had reversed the order these would also be in prime time

^ It's designed this way so higher seeds get more rest in the tournament. For example, if UNC makes it to the championship game, they'll have the most time between games, as opposed to FSU or Notre Dame.

Also some scouting time for the coaches that do advance. Pretty archaic nowdays, but is still common.

UNC crushing Miami. Fuck the Heels. I dont think they are that great, but when they hit their 3s, they are fucking tough.

I've seen some terrible calls in this UVA/ND game so far. How have the other games been?

Jim Boeheim hates him some Greensboro.

"In response, the city of Greensboro, which has hosted the conference tournament 26 times, tweeted: "We kindly disagree. But I guess you can lose in the 1st round anywhere. At least it's a quick ride home.""

I'm pretty sure Boeheim hated on the town of Clemson last year. Not that it is anything special, but fuck Boeheim and his northeast elitist attitude.

Duke's resume is stronger than UNCs and they won 2/3 head to head. No way the committee can put UNC on the 1 line and leave Duke off it.

Of course they can... the discussion this morning is about if duke is deserving of even a 2 seed... it would seems 8 losses is just way Too much for A 2 seed... 7 is fine for a one seed tho
