So I was thinking to myself last night that it really sucks LVL is no longer in the tournament. Especially since I still believe they are just as good as anyone still left in the field. So I was thinking about a possible change to the tournament bracket situation...
What if instead of the now 68 team field that they went with either a top 32 or 16 team scenerio. There would no longer be any automatic bids and all teams would be judged upon entire body of work.
Now the BIGGEST change that I propose is to go with a double elimination scenerio..... No longer is it a lose and go home tournament. You have to be beaten twice before you pack your bags and jump on the plane. I have been involved in some sports which has this type of setup and it always ended with great finishes and lasting excitement.
Now I havent totally thought through the logistics of this, and im sure there are some issues which would need to be overcame. I just wanted to get some other opinions to see if there would be a way to setup something similar.
