Like a good part of the ASUN, I'm sure resources are tight. I wonder how much they are spending on the training center and the upgrades to Swisher.

As you said, it's likely old. The funny thing is, I found it on coastalfans.com. apparently one of our old big South friends has a thing for Jacksonville and would like to see them come into the Sunbelt.

It makes so sense to me that the 8 seed has to win the same number of games as the 1 and 2 seed. It makes the regular season meaningless. There should be some sort of balance between the A-sun format and the WCC format.What you are saying has some merit as things were this year, with a one-site tournament. Normally in the ASUN, a high seeding gives you home court for tournament games as well as playing a team with a worse record. Not meaningless at all IMHO. I think giving a bye to top teams is a good option when you have more teams, the way the BSC did the last few years we were there. With 11 teams next year, you could give byes to the top 5 and the bottom 6 would play for the 6-8 seeds. Of course I've been pretty vocal about believing teams not eligible for post-season should not be included, which would drop it back down to 9, and only the 8 and 9 teams would play an extra game.

The ACC gives 4 teams a double bye, which is totally dumb.

I loved it.I also remember that 1 seed winning 6 straight games to claim the championship the very next year. Your ongoing expressions of hatred for everything UVA, and especially a squeaky clean basketball program headed up by one of the finest Christian men in the coaching profession, are beyond annoying, but I'm sure in large part that is why you do it. Has it occurred to you that were it not for Tony Bennett and what Ritchie McKay learned from him in the 6 years he spent working with him at UVA, we almost certainly would not be experiencing the success we are having right now?
