RE: Boeheim being Boeheim.....then gets owned by Greensboro
If the politicians in the state of North Carolina can get out of their own way, I think rotating the tournament between Charlotte, NYC, DC and Atlanta is the way to go in the future.

Charlotte is the largest metropolitan area that's close to the conference's geographic center and Boeheim is right about putting the tournament in major media markets. You get way more out of it in terms of exposure.

I think Al Featherston has just completely demolished any arguments against holding the tournament in Greensboro.

2-Big East fans in general are blinded as to what and where BIG TIME really is.

I won't argue point #1.

X, though I have respect for your posting it is my opinion that you are the poster on these boards who most exhibits SMALL TIME thinking. So I take your point #2 about fans from former Big East schools being blind to what BIG TIME thinking is as a compliment. 03-wink

To me it should be a rotation:

Greensboro
Greensboro
DC
Greensboro
Greensboro
NYC
Charlotte
Greensboro
Greensboro
Charlotte

Start over

You spelled "NYC" wrong a bunch of times, but I generally agree.

...says the guy arguing that the reigning champ is in a small time conference...that just so happened to be widely regarded as the best basketball conference ever put together until the 2nd raid. But hey, whose keeping track of facts?

He is an ******* and his disrespectful attitude does nothing but perpetuate the rude, know it all yankee stereotype. All he accomplished was making people have reason to dislike the school he represents.

I'm with you ...
it's nothing but disrespect for the league's cornerstone ...
made us what we are today ...
unrivaled potency ...
so sick of city slickers looking down on country folk ...
greensboro unconditionally supports the ACC ...
high time we pay homage in return ...

How about rotating between Charlotte, Jacksonville, Pittsburgh and Boston?

Jacksonville?

I think you miss the point of why it is in NYC these two years, and why teams and conference are always trying to schedule games and events in NYC. It isn't for fan convenience. NYC is the epicenter of the East Coast. It is, in many ways, the de facto capital of the Western Hemisphere. In case you haven't noticed, conferences are trying to break out of their regional origins. Some have even gone as far as adding one of the most inept Division 1 athletic programs in college athletic history because it is only 45 minutes away.

There is no reason to hold it in Jacksonville, Pittsburgh, or Boston.

If, for some reason, anybody thought it would be a good idea to play in Florida, it should be in either Miami or Orlando. Orlando, in particular, has tons of hotel rooms and is an easy flight from anywhere.
