Yep, every week of the regular season, and every conference tourney final mattering is much better in the long runOnly thing you lose is the "game of the century" types...but that's fine nowadays... Rarely happens...
Also I just gotta add that LSU is in the West WITH Bama(yea I’m sick of em too). So you can imagine the difficult road travelled to have been to 4 Natty’s in 20 yearsWho outside of fan bases are interested in Bama/Clemson/LSU/Ohio St/Oklahoma in this mini tournament? Occasionally someone else, sure, but this is not exciting for the sport
Depends, it can read a couple waysSounds great to me. The only part I don't like is giving four teams a bye
The fact the "six most highly rated conference champs" are automatically in is interesting. I could see a year where a Power Five conference power gets knocked off by a two loss team from the other division and it allows to Group of Five champs in. I I like that idea.
