Good idea, the CL should just be the NCAA tourney with group stages in the beginning.
ETA: to clarify I meant good idea on removing 3rd in group stages = Europa
And the europa should be the NIT, completely separate 32 teams enter single knockout cmpetition, seeding based on FIFA coefficient. Home and away is acceptable for rounds 1-3
