My favorite time of the year for sports is March Madness. Sitting at home and watching 2 straight days worth of college basketball tournament action is still something I treasure.
The NCAA had looked to expand it’s field to 96 teams this year, a move I strongly disagreed with.
Now, there are rumors that a 68 team field is much more likely. What does this mean? Most likely, it means that 4 additional at-large teams will make the field. They will compete in play-in games for the last at-large spots, usually 9-12 seeds. Northern Iowa was a 10 seed this year, so this should make for some very interesting games.
