Here we sit, between the two games of the 2014 Final Four. And the one team that we know will play for the national championship is….
Here is a team that finished third in their own conference, a team that was a 7-seed in their Regional bracket and was not even on the radar.
Three years ago, they won the national championship after finishing even lower in the conference - if I remember correctly, 7th!
Please, please, please, please, PLEASE…do not let anything like this happen in college football!
It's already scary how some are talking about the committee using resumes to select the participants. As I wrote in a previous blog post, that's like hiring an employee based on a resume comparison without even doing interviews.
But if they let too many teams in, ughhh. The basketball national champion is not necessarily one of the truly elite teams. Too often, it's the team that got hot at the end of the season. That's not what a champion should be. If UConn (or Kentucky) wins it all, it will be another year where the winner is not even close to the best team over the course of the season.
Football………JUST SAY NO!
