The Virginia Commonwealth Rams have made Jim Boehiem a very happy man.
The head coach of Syracuse was the most vocal supporter of expanding the tournament to 96 teams. And after VCU’s
improbable run to the Final Four, Boehiem’s dream may come true and it’ll be a nightmare for college basketball fans.
That’s why VCU is on my shit list today.
I know what you guys are thinking: What an asshole. This guy probably rooted against Hickory High, Rudy and the Jamaican bobsled team, too.
Hear me out though. The Rams are playing better than any other team in the tournament and I’m not trying to rain their parade. I'm not railing against mid major programs either. I'd be just as upset if USC or Clemson was making this crazy run instead.
The success of VCU is the all the firepower Boehiem and other expansion advocates need to destroy the perfect bracket sheet and water down the best tournament in sports.
What do you guys think? Am I way off here? Does anyone else want to see a 96-team tournament in light of VCU’s Final Four run?
