The teams that make the field for the NCAA tournament are always controversial in one aspect or another.  There is a way to take all the human bias out of it but I don’t think it has a leg to stand on.  Power conferences have their post conference tournaments to make money so they want that winner as an automatic pick.  Conferences without a tourney and deemed worthy of a bid take the conference champs.  Why not take the power rankings and line up the top 64 teams and let them play.  The top 4 get the No. 1 seed and you go on from there.  If ten teams come from one conference so be it.  For those that don’t make this  tourney set them up in the next best post-season tourney and so on.

If some school wants to play a weak pre-season they will pay for it.  Just because you win 20 games will not guarantee an entry into the tourney.  It will be based on quality wins and quality opponents.  If you are an independent or a school from a small conference but have the right power numbers you would be in.  The power rankings are based on numbers and not on any one’s opinion and those numbers are not subject to human bias.

The power teams would always get in and some of the small schools who play tough schedule would also get in.
