Not to mention most of the NCAA popularity comes from small market cities that don't have major pro-sports (or former/current alumni). Add that to the gambling and elimination style you get "March Madness." Wow. Put any freaking major sport in that format you'll get some fans (hey that's how the NFL does it).

College can still be fun. I only pointed it out because Nets fan has been pretty annoying lately coming into threads saying "why is this still stickied" "ncaa sucks" and goes into bucks forum with a video of devin harris dunking with no one in the vicinity except Yi and no one in that situation could have stopped harris. If you don't have anything positive to contribute, then just don't post, or at least shape your posts into something more constructive like the way LakerDynasty just voiced his dislike for the NCAA or say something like "mods green is waived so could you unsticky it", that sort of thing. Comes off as trollish when you do that too often.

Maybe if the NBA went to the one-and-done style of the NCAA, teams wouldn't take games off. I'd love to see a healthy Cavs team in a single elimination tournament, because I don't think anyone can stop LeBron, when he says all we need is this one game!
