I am hoping there are some common sense willing to change folks over at the NCAA (yes I get it it is a stretch to make that assumption) that will return us to where we all belong - to a place where the Thursday and Friday games are the FIRST ROUND. Why in the name of all things right in the world would we call those games the second round? So 60 teams essentially are granted a Bye into the 2nd Round. I really don't care what naming convention / terminology / verbiage / labeling they want to use for those First Four games but they are NOT the First Round. They just aren't!!!! They are the play in games into the real Bracket - Do they really gain enough revenue and TV ratings for those 4 games in Dayton to justify even having the expanded field? Why don't we just stretch it to the Field of 128 while we are at it! I mean I understand there are programs that are Bubble Programs and Cuse has had its moments on that Bubble in the past and the years when it burst - it deserved to burst and even when we became the 1st Big East team with 20 wins to not make the Dance - they weren't good enough. So all I ask is to give us back our FIRST ROUND. There is nothing better than the Thursday/Friday games - I just want to call the the FIRST ROUND! It isn't too much to ask.
