How many coaches at our level win 50 games in two seasons and are then let go?

So, this year's CAAT saw total attendance increase by 31% compared to last year and about 11.5% over the first year in Baltimore. Average attendance per session of 4250 is somewhat close to the 4500 per session in Richmond the first two years that the AE4 schools were involved. Granted it helped that the two closest schools ended up playing last night, but UNCW is 3.75 hrs from Charleston with no interstate connection (by comparison, that's a half hour shorter than the drive from my house in Delco to the Richmond coliseum even though my drive is about 60 miles further). I've done the Wilmington to Charleston round-trip, it isn't the funnest of drives, so it seems like there could be a base to build off of. I know I plan on trying to make it down next year, of course when I let my wife know of that intent she asked me "why," so maybe don't look for me.

ETA: The TV coverage better get better, because going hat in hand to the least subscribed cable sports network and then agreeing? to not stream it through the league website was a bad decision.

Remember that this was a last minute push to find a national cable outlet after NBC dumped the league. The only other options would have been NBC Regional Networks or American Sports Network. So at least it was on National TV.

I have no problem if the CAA decides to renew with CBS-SN. It's a network that's available to everybody in the country if they want it. If somebody is too cheap to have cable or a certain tier of cable, that their problem. But if the league does sign an agreement with CBS, it should come with a at least one national game of the week, and maybe even the opportunity to get the championship game on the real CBS. But of course that would mean the league would have to get creative with their tournament format and move their championship to a weekend. I don't see much creativity in the CAA Sports offices.

RE: CAA Tournament
LOL, thanks for calling me cheap. Well aware Comcast tossed us aside, after the semis had been on CSN the past couple of years, this year those were bumped for Spring Training and relegated to TCN. I really don't have an issue with it being on CBSSN if there had been more than a little less than two months of notice. The fact is that the league took a cut of about 25% in terms of households reached for its marquee event. For this year, due to short notice, they should have pushed for the allowance of streaming.

RE: CAA Tournament
All "major" networks like this one should have streaming options. It is really dumb to not
