The response from media on Twitter has been almost universally negative. A sampling of Tweets:
Michael DeCourcy @tsnmike: If I'm a UNC fan, I'm hoping Bubba Cunningham's plans for Tar Heels are better than his idea for a 128-team NCAAT. Horrendous.
Michael DeCourcy @tsnmike: If you look at this college basketball season and decide it needs a 128 team tournament, I must seriously question your judgment.
Dave Telep @DaveTelep: Imagine being a BCS level coach and you miss a 128-team NCAA Tournament. Careful what you wish for.
Jeff Rabjohns @JeffRabjohns: In the Mock Selection, we had a tough time finding 37 teams truly deserving of an NCAA Tournament at-large berth. 128-team field? Please.
Jason Anderson @J680Anderson: If there was a 128-team NCAA tournament this year Seth Greenberg would still be on the bubble.
Pete DiPrimio @pdiprimio: North Carolina AD likes a 128-team NCAA tourney field. Lot of people say this is stupid. Some say it's brilliant. We're too tired to choose.
Matthew Stevens @matthewcstevens: Note to new North Carolina athletics director Bubba Cunningham: IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE HARD TO MAKE NCAA TOURNAMENT!
David Teel @DavidTeelatDP: Thankfully #UNC AD Bubba Cunningham, proponent of 128-team tournament, is not on selection committee.
Ben Kercheval @CFTBenKerch: Can someone remind Bubba Cunningham that he's at North Carolina, not Tulsa? You know, where he's going to make the tournament every year.
Larry Williams @LarryWilliams: UNC AD likes the idea of a 128-team field in NCAA Tournament. And you think the regular season is boring now?
