100Level, Nigeria.
Over the past week-and-a-half, USA TODAY Sports unveiled a list of 11 things we'd change in sports — from restructuring the playoffs to expanding the size of the NBA court, and everything in between.

Some of you loved the ideas we came up with. And some of you didn't.

And lots of you had pretty good ideas of your own — changes and reforms that you explained in emails, comments and social-media posts, many of them possibilities that we never even considered.

So now that we've gone through the 11 things we'd change in sports, here are some of things that you told us you'd change.

1. Restructure the MLB postseason to include more back-to-back games.

"The playoffs should be a microcosm of the season.
You clinched with five starters.
You shouldn’t be able to win with only three starters.

I realize that my team (the Twins) benefited from that in 87 and 91 but I’m tired of watching baseball in November," Joel Engstrom wrote in an e-mail.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora hoists the Commissioner's Trophy winning the World Series.

2. Eliminate the first round of playoffs in the NBA and NHL.

"Four rounds diminishes the importance of the regular season," KC Green wrote on Facebook.

3. Bring basketball's over-and-back rule to soccer.
