This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

I'll reiterate my proposal by ShermanOaksND
Best of 3 format for the rounds of 16 and 8. The round of 16 would be this weekend at campus sites, with the higher seeds playing host.
The round of 8 would be the "regionals" at neutral sites, next weekend. I might re-seed after the round of 16 and after the regionals.
The Frozen Four would remain the weekend after the Final Four, but I'd flip it from Thursday-Saturday to Saturday-Monday. This would give teams more rest, make it easier for more people to watch the Saturday games, and maximize TV ratings for the championship game.
