    The NCAA should change the foul rule so that if you are fouled, you shoot free throws and YOUR team keeps the ball. This would eliminate the boring end-game strategy of intentional fouls with endless free throws, and would stop the mugging of guys shooting layups.

    Fouls at the end of the game are what make it interesting. The other 38 minutes are more boring.

    If you want a game with just a bunch of shots devoid of all strategy, watch the NBA.

    No way!

    They ousted my beloved U of A Wildcats.

    Just like last year. 😠

    I had them pegged for the Final Four. Alas.

    At least they got to the Elite Eight.

    It's the other definition of 'one and done' that irks me.

    Urban dictionary: An athlete who spends one year in college before moving on to professional sports.

    There's nothing to be done about it. Big money to be made, college-level career-denying injuries to be avoided, etc.

    But the great teams of the past gave a university the chance for a dynasty.

    The last "dynasty" I remember, which was only 2 years in duration, was my Florida Gators when the national championship was won by underclassmen led by Joakim Noah and Al Horford, who all opted to stay in school and win a second natl championship.

    But another factor is the self-defeating nature of a good, young team. Who wants to recruit to a college where you will sit on the bench behind an already-seasoned crew and only get to play as the practice squad? Better to go to a college that is in rebuilding mode where you get to play and perhaps shine. So the cycle of winning and rebuilding is perpetuated.

    Thank you very much.

    That said, March Madness has me hooked. Too bad I don't have cable, so only see what's on CBS.
