Yes, yes, yes. I know. The NCAA grinds its molars to dust when you refer to the games Tuesday and Wednesday in Dayton as "play-in" games.
They're "first-round" NCAA tournament games. They are. Really.
Your top two reasons why they really are play-in games:
1. When Iona and BYU played last night, they were both listed as 14 seeds. That's because they were playing for the 14 seed. Which means they weren't technically in the tournament yet.
2. The play-in games are being played on Tru TV. If they were really tournament games, would they be playing them on the same network that proudly brings you Lizard Lick Towing and Operation Repo?
