Republican Debate Pool and March Madness

As the Republican field for 2016 continues to grow — potentially including as many as 18 candidates by the time primary season begins — the obvious logistical difficulties of hosting an 18-candidate debate have become apparent. Even if the final count isn't quite that high, fitting this many people comfortably on the stage (not to mention letting them talk for more than 15 seconds at a time) will be tricky.
While a handful of solutions have been proposed, one particularly intriguing idea is to have a series of one-on-one debates organized like a March Madness bracket.
