I’m not sure what’s meant by “Dance”, but here’s my idea to improve the tournament: Replace the massive single-elimination tournament with a two-stage “World Cup”-like tournament. There’s various ways of doing that, but my suggestion is below.
Stage One: Group the 48 teams into 8 groups of 6. Use some sort of seating to keep the best teams in different groups. Try to avoid placing two teams from the same conference in the same group. Every team plays each other team in their group once. Rank the teams in the group by win-loss record, with points-scored differential to break ties.
Stage Two: The top 2 teams of each group advance to a 16-team single-elimination bracket. Seeding is based solely on Stage-One performance (win-loss record, points-scored differential). Teams play until eliminated.
The champion will have played 9 games total, and every team plays at least 5. There’s a total of 135 games played. I think fewer teams is better, but the system can be expanded easily enough.
