try the CBI
The country has a new addition to ‘March Madness’. “The College Basketball Invitational” has been created and will pit 16 ‘deserving’ teams against each other in a a post-season tournament starting this season.

The most interesting piece of all of this is the tournament’s format.
The College Basketball Invitational will be a single-elimination tournament, up until the Championship Series, with all games being played at campus sites. The Championship Series will be a best of three series, home-away-home, in which the higher seed will get the first and last (if necessary) home games.
I expect 95% of the country to make fun of this new tournament and criticize its existence. But, honestly, who cares? The tournament’s existence doesn’t hurt anyone. If it provides us all more basketball and gives your team another opportunity to play for something then that is fine with me.
