It has become quite clear that no team in the Pac-12 deserves to compete in the NCAA Tournament this March. With Washington's loss to Cal (the worst high-major team in history) there are plenty of mid-major conference teams that are infinitely more deserving.
Bids are usually guaranteed to conference tournament winners to allow small schools with small athletic budgets a shot at the Big Dance. The Pac-12 schools are neither small nor low budget.
Change the rules for 2019 and prevent the Pac-12 Conference from ruining the integrity of the NCAA Tournament.
