Having it at a neutral site is a....what's the word...DISASTER.

The higher seed should host each round.

04-jawdrop That would be a disaster . . . If you don't like the neutral site, then let the site rotate each year among the conference members . . . But to have the "surviving" higher seed of each round host would be a logistics nightmare . . . .

You wouldn't be able to complete the conference tournament in time.

Every conference in every sport with a conference tournament uses a neutral site.

Go back to the old tournament format, and go back to Thursday and Saturday double-headers, please.

The Atlantic 10 used to do a hybrid format. The opening rounds were at a neutral site, then a break for 2 days then the conference championship was at the higher seed. Not sure that would work for the Belt.

Or why not just have the teams rotate hosting the tournament?

With imbalanced schedules, having everyone make the tournament is the best solution.

There's no great solution to hosting due to how spread out the league is.

New Orleans is a decent spot due to how accessible it is flying in, but attendance has been miserable.

An East/West rotation of hosting could be good. The most logical East location is Atlanta, but it would get swallowed up by the SEC.

Does Pensacola have an arena?

Atlanta is the hometown of one institution.

Pensacola has an old arena.

Lets not pretend that any neutral venue is really going to draw a lot of fans, barring some major upgrade to our programs.

If we can't make New Orleans, work....there's not anyplace that will work as a neutral site.

So, is it just that we don't get a lot of fans?

I would like to see a few changes in the tournament. But those changes are only under the control of Appalachian State.

Yeah...any neutral site will be sad. On campus will only draw for that teams games until they eliminated which seems to happen early. So...if you can go go...if not it is what it is.

Hot springs was a better site than New Orleans. More people came and even the locals actually cared about it! I like the idea of giving the 1 seed a bye to the championship to make a bigger impact in the NCAA tournament but that's only a dream, it won't happen.
