Well That Was Anti-Climactic

After everyone and their brother-in-law swearing the NCAA was expanding the basketball tournament to 96 games, the press release hit the wires announcing... an expansion to 68.  This past season, that would have meant Virginia Tech, Mississippi State and Illinois to the field, none of who advanced to the NIT semis in Madison Square Garden, but compared to 96 is a small cut.

I wouldn't want to be the eight minor conference champions pushed into a Tuesday/Wednesday slot, though.
