NCAA pooh-bahs had better fix the way they crown their men's basketball champion, because, as usual, the tournament has been a horrible bore.
Overtimes, one-point games, stunning upsets, wild finishes, stirring storylines ... yawn ... wake me when it's over, OK?
Obviously, NCAA honchos should have adopted the always-thrilling BCS model, declared Kansas and Kentucky the two best teams in the land, had the Jayhawks and Wildcats wait 4 or 5 weeks until they meet in an overhyped mythical title game, and let all the other teams play in dozens of glorious basket-"bowl" games.
After all, that formula always produces such a satisfying conclusion to the college football season, right?
And while they're at it, they can tell their basketball programs to stop scheduling games against quality opponents before conference play begins. In football, the best teams spend September fattening up on Cupcake U - yummy morsels for the every-game-counts crowd.
It's hard to beat Florida vs. Central Eastern State College for none of the marbles, I always say.
Clearly, following the NCAA basketball tournament model could never work in football.
I mean, who would want to see the best teams from a cross-section of the country go at it round-by-round until a legitimate champion gets crowned?
