Once Again NCAA Shows How It’s Done

Remember a month ago how the rumors started flying about the NCAA men's basketball tournament field potentially getting expanded to 96 teams? Today the news hit that there would indeed be an expansion, but it would be to 68 teams and not 96 teams.  I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that there's a very high probability that the NCAA deliberately "leaked" the 96 team number so that when the true expansion hit everyone's reaction would be "Only 68 huh?" and not, "Jeez, 68 teams will totally dilute the field and make this thing a crapfest!"

PR flaks around the world are smiling.
