Given the rash of major conference tournament champions that have exited the NCAA tournament quickly, should conference post season tournaments be limited to 8 teams?


* Adds value to regular season games in larger conferences
* Reduces missed class time
* Reduces risk of injury
* Reduces possibility of doormat team winning an automatic bid


* May make ticket sales more difficult (fewer ways to divide the same arena)
* Effectively eliminates more teams during the regular season
* Fewer games on which to earn TV revenue

If that rule were in effect this season:

South Carolina would not have qualified for the SEC tournament, much less finished second.

Syracuse would be in the NIT; Rutgers, Louisville, and Notre Dame would have also sat out the Big East tournament.

I would prefer the NCAA recognizing the conference regular season champion as having the automatic bid.

I'd also prefer the NCAA not recognizing ANY champion in a conference where each team doesn't play every other team home and home, but I doubt I'd be elected benevolent despot of the NCAA.
