Here's an idea for just this year. Given that there is a chance that choosing the fourth seed between Penn and Columbia might be determined by the results of Saturday's Cornell at Brown game, let's reschedule it to Sunday afternoon.

This will allow busloads of Quaker and Lion fans to make the trip to Providence. After the final buzzer, they can then storm the court, celebrating jubilantly while the unaffected Cornell and Brown players walk off the court nonchalantly.

This is what the season has boiled down to.

Despite the attempted snark, the season still boils down to next weekend at the Palestra.

Or maybe *you* only care about the 4th seed.

Think about what you are saying... the last game of the season will have meaning in at least 3 of the 4 matchups... whereas under the old rules, by last weekend 6 of 8 teams would have been eliminated, making about 10 games meaningless in the final two weekends.

The anti-tourney people keep shooting themselves in the foot by bringing up the fact that all the pro-tourney people have mentioned for years, namely that the value of the entire 14-game season FOR EACH SCHOOL, not just the frontrunners, is enhanced when there is something on the line.
