Just what is the point?
I watched the Lady Vols get kicked around by Stanford the other day and saw a commercial which told me, breathlessly, about how the SEC had revamped the baseball tournament. The two division champions get a bye in the first round, and eight other teams play, for a total of ten, up from eight last year.
The thing is, there are only twelve teams in the conference. So the tournament is ten of twelve teams. Theoretically, the tenth team could win the tournament. Sheesh. Why have the season?
(And before you tell me, I know what the point is. Money.)
