ACC Proposes Every D-I Team Plays in 2021 NCAA Basketball Tournament



If the ACC coaches get their way, the 2021 NCAA Tournament will be historic with 346 teams making the field.

The ACC coaches met this morning and proposed an all-inclusive 2021 NCAA Tournament, with every Division-I  team qualifying.

Per Sports Illustrated’s Pat Forde, “the plan would turn conference championship week into the opening round of the Big Dance. From there the field is reduced to 64-68 by the following week.”

The first ACC coaches to publicly comment on this unprecedented move were Wake Forest’s Steve Forbes and Louisville’s Chris Mack.

As you would imagine, such a radical proposal is being met with opposition, as some view this as devaluing a great event.

The Stadium’s Jeff Goodman is reporting that Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski was one of the main figures spearheading this idea.
