You have probably heard by now that the NCAA Tournament is likely to expand to 96 teams, with 32 teams getting a first-round bye.
The details will determine whether this is good for mid-major teams. For instance, the NCAA could give each conference regular season champion an automatic bid, like the NIT (which would be eliminated) currently does.
