GG is correct that the basketball tourney creates excitement/interest.

What it also means is that the winner of the regular season has a meaningless championship as it does not guarantee a spot in the NCAA playoffs.

Something wrong with that.

With Harvard clearly going national in terms of its program my best hope is that in the future the Ivy League will get potentially 2 slots in the tourney so that the regular season is not just a warm up for a 2 game season to see who goes to the national tournament.

M3. No argument from me on the cheapening of the regular season. The "wild card" concept has come to the Ivy League.

To me, a #1 seed in the league tournament and a guarantee that you won't do any worse than the NIT is not "meaningless."

And the rest of the world seems to be on my side on this point.
