If the team is good enough to make the NCAAs then they should get to play. All it does is put that team farther behind their conference peers, unless the NCAA wants the newbies to start with as much of a disadvantage as possible?

It is mainly compliance stuff that they have to do during the four years, so I think the logic behind it is that they don't want a program moving up, breaking the rules, and then acting like they didn't know they were doing something wrong. And that is me stretching play devil's advocate. Plus, I think GCU was the only program to have a winning record (again) of the group of four that moved up for the 2013-2014 season.

Congrats on win vs. Bakersfield. The margin of error for winning the WAC was so small between NMSU/CSUB/GCU this year, but it was NMSU's to lose and we did. There is no way ASU would agree to play in one of the lower tourney's if they were to play GCU. GCU will play in whatever tourney that invites them. They can afford it and will do it. They deserve it. They had a fantastic year. The NCAA 4 year probation period is absurd and should be playing in the WAC tourney this year. Anyway, good luck Lopes in the CIT or CBI or whatever. See u in Vegas or wherever they have the tourney next year (I'm hoping in Phoenix at GCU arena). Anyway, laters.

I think that the WAC does have the ability to say that GCU can play in the conference tourney, then if GCU made it to the finals, the other team would go on to the tourney no matter what.

The WAC should have allowed GCU to play in the WAC Tournament this season.

But I also think we need to start rotating the WAC Tournament between Phoenix and Las Cruces.

The idea of giving anyone home court advantage for a tourney is dumb.

Agreed. Don't see anything wrong with Vegas

It's embarrassing to see 1,000 fans in attendance for the WAC Championship game on ESPN. in 2007, we had 11,948 for the WAC Championship game. The only two places that can sell out the arena are GCU and NMSU. Unless Seattle, and the rest of the conference can bring 1,000 fans to the tournament, it needs to rotate between NMSU and GCU.

I feel like we've talked about the problems with WACt in Phoenix before. The biggest one being that Spring Training is just getting up and going here. Good luck finding hotels, rental cars, tee times, dining options, etc. at a reasonable rate, if at all.

The 2007 WAC Tournament in Las Cruces was a success. It was actually the biggest attend tournament since 1998.
