Antitrust case puts NCAA on defense (article)

In U.S. District Court in New York, the National Invitation Tournament is challenging the NCAA's requirement that teams attend its championships if invited. The NIT, a once-prominent postseason basketball tournament but now greatly overshadowed by the concurrent NCAA event, contends teams should have the choice to play in any tournament. That could open the postseason to entrepreneurs or prompt the top schools to organize themselves, as in football.

You know what would be fun? If the NCAA would break up into smaller college organizations. Well it would be fun for awhile at least. Let’s try that.
