Because that's what you are asking for. I remember the outrage Michigan got when they hosted as a lower seed, and I'm sure many examples of that are why it was changed in the first place. Just shows that everything old is new again.
    The lower seed Michigan beat SCSU in Yost. That was about 20 years ago and still frustrating.

    Correction, SCSU was the 5, Michigan 4. They knocked out DU, which was the number 1 seed.

      That's the one I'm pretty sure. There was a 2 or 3 year stretch where Michigan hosted at Yost and people were talking about the fairness of it.

      Now we just need to get the Frozen Four in Detroit again...

      • I haven't listened to Adam before, but I had read both Brad's article and Adam's followup one.

        David clearly dominated the interview with reason and ideas that honestly made Adam seem like he knew nothing.

        The biggest takeaway I had was that David laid out the best-case future scenario and then Adam would kind of agree but keep bringing up this notion that Brad recommends a best of 3 war the way to go.

        That's completely untrue as Brad and David have the same idea of single game at top 8 seeds. Then, the next weekend a single game at the top 4 seeds.

        So, it just turned into Adam saying over and over "well yeah, that's better than the 3 game idea."

        He may be a great debater but as others have said, he had nothing to stand on in this interview. It was a bit embarrassing honestly and considering this was the first entry too his show for a lot of fans, it's likely his position and inability to directly offer better alternatives will limit how much those people tune in.

        • Personally, if they’re going to go to full weekends for a single round I’d rather it be best of 3, but it seems like a lot of coaches aren’t on board with that. And I’d rather have a single game than two game aggregate.

          • I love campus sites but I want single elimination. It preserves the advantage but flattens it, and it is easier logistically for everybody. The unknows of a game three are extremely disruptive.

              • I look at the 16 team tournament at neutral sites as a good faith experiment that some people foolishly believed would "grow" the sport. It didn't and that ship has sailed. It would be nice if the powers that be would do what is best for the sport, admit they were misguided, and go to higher seeds hosting. Single game elimination at 1-8, re-seed and do the same with 1-4 the next weekend, and then a neutral site final four.

                • Best of three only works with an eight-team field.
