I'd be all in on the 32-team, five-day battle royale, so long as a cage is involved.

I just threw the neutral thing out there.I remember they use to play in the regional games for third place!But the game has moved on from that also.So hopefully things will change like they have over the years!

Sometimes you need to watch out for what you wish for.

If they go neutral, then teams & fans will be claiming if they were home they would have won.

Or, how could the NCAA have ever come up with that place as a neutral site?

Are there occasional unavoidable slights? Absolutely.

However, for the most part, I think the NCAA gets the host schools right far more than they screw them up.

You're right on that!

Will Renken was the NCAA committee.

And, Albright was always the neutral site.  ;)

neutral sites won't work in D3 either.....there would be empty arenas until the final four.

Plus, who would want to host?

Exactly...who can support 32 teams. It would have to be a major city like the NAIA in KC. Oh...2017 attendance for that ...39,000 for 31 games. That sounds like a rip roaring environment.

I thought we were talking about neutral sites for the sectionals.

Someone mentioned the NAIA just has a 32 team tournament at a neutral site....So I was responding to that concept.

At the other end up the spectrum, there was Roy Williams' rant a few years back over a first-round tip that was just before 10 p.m. local time. 

I got to sit in the daggum hotel room, Williams said. I wake up at 6 in the morning, dont go to work until freaking 9:30 at night.

I don't know if this has been covered but I'd like to discuss how Whitman should be hosting this weekend as the #1 seed in the tournament and not flying to New York...
