USATSI_9182859_154849602_lowres Now here's an SEC tournament idea I think we can all get behind. Instead of moving the game back four months, as Calipari suggests, let's move it back one day. Coaches around the SEC support the change, and according to Jeff Goodman, they put forth a proposal for the move to Saturday at the SEC spring meetings down in Destin. One coach told Goodman, "Honestly, Calipari's idea was discussed for about 30 seconds before it was dismissed... Moving the championship game to Saturday is something that we all basically agreed would be good for our league." Like Cal said yesterday, something must change because the title game does not matter to the NCAA selection committee. If it did, Kentucky would've been a No. 3 in the tourney last year, not Texas A&M. The Cats' Sunday championship win over A&M literally did nothing for its tournament seeding. But a move to Saturday? The committee can't ignore the title game then. That would allow 24 hours for the committee to factor in whatever happened in the SEC title game. And let's be really honest with ourselves... Big Blue Nation needs another night to celebrate the title. That Sunday drive home from Nashville is BRUTAL.
