Someone at the NCAA had the bright idea to try to super size its hockey championship. Put it in an indoor football stadium, just like the Final Four. It has worked to an extent in basketball, although I'm not one of those who spent hundreds of dollars to be closer to God than Gordon Hayward on Monday.
Hockey, though, has some work to do. In fact, the wise men who run the sport might have just jumped the shark. You know, tried something so outlandish that it actually turns people off. If you haven't noticed lately, this non-profit (wink, wink) amateur (wink, wink) association has gone all Gordon Gekko. Not only is greed good, expansion is excellent. Whether it be the basketball tournament bracket or TV contracts or seating capacity, bigger is better.
