RE: NCAA Tournament committee to emphasize road results in new bracket process
I love competition. I also want a level playing field. What exists today is a stacked deck for the P5s that is absurd. Why would any governing body condone allowing schools like Duke and Syracuse to never leave home until league play? Heck, why stop there? Duke should play all of their league games at home too.

JMUNation is right about this being about governance. The NCAA - a non-profit organization - has a mandate, but the reality is that universities with big $$$ are really setting the rules.

This is how the FCS was born. The difference for football was that it became obvious much sooner due to the sheer number of scholarships. In bball, a "small school" would seem to have just the same opportunity to field quality starters as a P5. But TV revenues have forever changed the landscape, and any P5 school or league would be categorically crazy to share with schools that comparatively fail in terms of fandom and donors.

I don't agree with the idea of a P5-only bball league, but it does make sense in the contemporary context to me.

In any case, I hope JMU learns how to maximize its exposure through this new development.

The following classic Jerry Tarkanian line summarizes the chances of there every being any attempt at a level playing field.

“The NCAA is so mad at Kentucky it will probably slap another two years probation on Cleveland State.’’

And so true. I tried to quote Tarkanian in another thread but could not get the quote exactly right. Big time college sports are becoming a joke. The NCAA is simply a governing body that really doesn't govern.

Yep.

UNCheat still hasn't been kicked in the groin for 20+ years of strategically planned fraud. Miami got off with little more than a slap on the wrist. Over half of the SEC (and apparently ACC) cheats with no remorse. But, by Buddha, the NCAA has other things to concentrate on. You know, like the Southern Idaho School of Mimes (not Mines) Men's Badminton team going on probation for 5 years for looking at the NCAA the wrong way.

Yup, what went on-- and probably still going on-- in Cheater Hill is a damn travesty. Their arrogant stonewalling of the process will probably get them off with nothing at all. They've spent $18 million+ on keeping those 1993, 2005 and 2009 banners in place.
