Poll: Should NCAA Expand March Madness Field?



WVU in the NCAA Tournament

The NCAA is once again opening talk to potentially expanding the March Madness field, as Power-5 commissioners opened dialogue with NCAA President Charlie Baker. The conversation has been brought up more and more in recent years but the Power-5 conferences, including the Pac-12, are pushing for expansion.

The recent debate has opened for coaches and fans to pick a side: some want expansion to 96 teams while others want to keep it at 68. This would create more openings for Power-5 and Big East schools to reach the tournament with an at-large bid and potentially give less opportunities to the mid-majors.

NCAA expanded the March Madness field from 64 to 68 in 2011, creating the traditional First Four in Dayton that kicks off the tournament.

Should the NCAA expand the field once again?
