No more than half your conference, and a max of 6 teams from one conference.

Each team must have a .600 or better winning % in conference play, including their conference tournament. .595 won't cut it. If your team is 11-7 going into the conference tourney, you better win at least one.

If you win your conference regular season title but fail in the conference​ tournament , you are guaranteed a bid in the play in game if you aren't an at large candidate. Teams here are subject to the prior rule, if you aren't .600 or better in conference, you stay home, but you do get an NIT Auto bid.

NFL type scheduling- each year, a top 10 rpi conference must play a home and home with one team from 2 designated local conferences from the lower 22 conferences weighted by RPI.

i.e. last years #4 SEC team = #5 conference​ RPI - plays OVC team #4 last season H&H, AND plays A-SUN #4 team H & H. And the ncaa mandates the play dates. Dont make a play date, you're not going dancing.

Teams qualifying for the NCAA are ranked by winning %, and no other criteria is used. Your team is 33-1, then you get a #1 seed. No matter the conference you came from. Your team is 18-14, but the selection committee thought you needed to be there (Mich. St), then you get a 16 seed.

2nd, 3rd & 4th place teams from every conference not in the ncaas get an auto bid into the nit if they are over .600 in all games.

Never, ever blindly allow the conference champ in if they lose in their tournament. When every Smaller conference does this, then what? Why wouldn't you tank for extra credits?

I'm good with half a conference max. I know people harped on Vandy, but I want their schedule encouraged.

There are simple rules that could be put in place that would help things. Only half of your non conference games can be home games is where I would start. I'd love to see what that would do.

I really want to see 2 teams from every conference and rank them 1-64 by winning percentage only. Then play and share the money equally. No more deep run credits, etc. Every team plays, every team should benefit.

The ACC is just about to be 0-8 on the first weekend

The refs blew a couple of calls, but the Arkansas players made some dumb decisions and missed free throws late. Hard to blame the refs for a loss when your players are screwing up

Why not ? It's fair to everyone. The way it is now is just a moneygrab sales job by CBS.

I agree. Most conferences that only get one team in, deserves only one team.

Leveling the playing field doesn't start with changing the rules on how teams are selected for the tournament. it starts with how teams schedule and how they recruit.

Because our sorry ass team spanked sorry ass swac teams this year. I don't want to see them get whacked by the big time schools every year. I want the mid majors to get some more respect, not a free for all letting anybody in.

Zero whistles against UNC in the last 5 min of PT. ARK players got a stop, and unc player walked, charged, walked again, threw up prayer, got bailed out by big camped in lane for 8 seconds, no call.

One swac team already gets in. But every team in the southeast wears out a swac out of conference schedule.

Imagine how those programs would fare after a few years of getting the same payout as the ACC .

Yes, conferences like the SWAC & a lot of others get squeezed out from the money.

In a fair world you wouldn't get 10 teams from 1 conference in the tournament.
