Re: CBS/TBS making joint bid to cover the 96-team March Madness

I read where over 80% of fans polled are against tournament expansion but it appears they are going to jam it down our throats. Then you have a vast majority of fans wanting a college football playoff of some kind and we don't see it and probably won't for several years.
It is like DC crowd. It is all about the money.
Looking forward to CFH magic for the next bball season, Georges style.
