Hopefully I'm not trolling on this post. If your a basketball fan, there is nothing like March Madness! I've been to a Super Bowl and I can say without a doubt that March Madness is the best sporting event in all of American sports. Only 2nd to the World Cup as the worlds best sporting event. With that being said, The absurdity of the Big Dance is amazing. I know that I'm going to get ripped for this, but emphases that is place on winning a few games in March is overrated. The tournament is the biggest over reaction in all of sports. If you a coach and you win a few games, schools are lining up to over pay them. Just look at Dan Monson. He wins a few games at Gonzaga, get big dollars at Minnesota. How did that work out? Florida Gulf Coast coach. Andy Enfield make a nice run in the tournament. Off to USC he goes with only two years as head coach. The guy is three games over 500 as a coach. His team was 2nd in their league at 13-5. Win the conference tournament. A trip to the sweet 16 earns him a huge pay raise(1.5 million) and promotion. 80 minutes of coaching. It happens with players as well. Guys go from having average year. then have two or three good games in the Big Dance. They go from being a 2nd round draft pick to be a high 1st rounder. Happens every year. The biggest over reaction is what teams do in March. Please don't get me wrong. I hope Gonzaga makes it to a Final Four. It would make the season last longer and make the season more fun. I still don't think two or three wins make or brake a season. In a one in done tournament the best team doesn't always win. There are just to many variables that goes into making a deep run in March. If you come from like a conference like the WCC, you are at a disadvantage. Seeding, match ups, placement, and injuries. Who had a better season Dayton or Wichita St?
