Gonzaga and BYU started the talks about opting out of the WCC Tournament. I have to imagine this is only the beginning of these kinds of thoughts for teams that feel they are safely in the tournament. Do you think teams should be allowed to opt out? And, if teams do go this route, how should automatic bids be handled?

I'm not a fan of opt outs, though I understand them. I think that the automatic bid should be forfeited by the league if this happens. Nobody wants to see a team like Boston College in the tournament.
