What is good for one is not good for all.

Football would be just as bad with 32 as basketball or baseball would be with 4.

When you have over 300 basketball teams compared to 130 football teams, the total tournament participants should not be equal.

In my personal opinion football should have 6. This gives a bigger advantage to 1 and 2.

Basketball could get by with around 36 if they split divisions like football and had a lower tier.

I don't think 68 is bad for basketball right now.

The problem with basketball is pretending that rpi, Net, or any other numbers tell you what you need to know about who should get in. The committee picks who they want, just like football.
