Is last four byes the teams that are in, but not having to play the play in games in Dayton? Last four in would be those teams?
Seems like a dumb name. I thought they did away with calling the play-in games the "first round" because it insinuates 60 teams get a bye. Or a 16 seed beats a 16 seed and they "have advanced past the first round for the first time in school history" but not really.
They call in the "First Four" now. Kinda silly, but I guess they don't like the play-in term either, since four of the participants are pretty much always conference champions who were supposed to get an automatic bid.
