SEC Commissioner Says It's Time to Take a 'Fresh Look' at March Madness - Sports Illustrated

Southeastern Conference commissioner Greg Sankey, arguably the most influential person in college athletics, said On Thursday he wants to take a “fresh look” at the NCAA men’s basketball tournament—perhaps with an eye toward expanding the current 68-team field.

Sankey cautions that he’s “not ready to make headlines there yet.” But he’s also open to conversations about a Big Dance that doesn’t exclude small conference champions while potentially including more teams.

For example, he mentions the 2022 College World Series baseball championship, which was won by SEC member Mississippi — the last team into the 64-team field.
