38. They need to expand that 12-team bracket to a 16-team bracket
Thu Dec 7, 2023, 12:39 AM
Dec 7

The bracket I have seen gives the top four teams a bye into the second round.

The ideal bracket would look like the NHRA Ladder: the 16 cars that make it to Sunday are all in the first round, then 8, then 4, then 2. Seeding would be the ten conference champions plus the six best teams that weren't conference champions.

It sucks. Florida should be there, they have the record.............................. Lovie777 Dec 5 #1
