Somebody has a sense of humor. Syracuse's opening round opponent in the NIT is UNC-Greensboro!

Brooklyn's arnea isn't near Times Square. i don't think too many people care much about Brooklyn itself. so that kind of negates your Charleston argument.

let's put it this way. Mary tyler Moore, AMerica's sweetheart, grew up in Brooklyn. SHe said when she was young, her goal was to get the h-- out of Brooklyn. lol

i'm assuming only reason it was in Brooklyn this year is it is cheaper than renting MSG. i think if it is held in NYC, it should only be at MSG because it is in Manhattan. they need to make it conducive to the fact so many of the fans are coming from far away and don't want to spend their time in NYC in brooklyn.

Hey if you want it in Greenville one year instead of Greensboro go for it...tix pricing will firm up...

The only reason the tourney is in Brooklyn is because MSG wasn't available. It had nothing to do with rent. Brooklyn is not as good as midtown...but the league wanted exposure in the northern flank.

You keep talking about $6...that is not unusual for the early games...the crowd looks pretty good early to me. The crowd looked good on Friday and Saturday to me.

RE: Big Dance
the league didn't want exposure, it was about holding the game near fans of the northern ACC teams.

ACC is televised, that is the exposure. it isn't like there are people out there who are unaware of ACC basketball. lol

very few non-ACC team fans attended the tournament in Brooklyn.. you act like everybody in the metro went to the tournament. lol

i don't think Coach K and the other ACC coaches were pushing for the tournament to be held in NYC and i don' tthink it ever was prior to northern teams entering the conference.

RE: Big Dance
cite your source that a ton of non-ACC fans attended. why would they? you would think a person would be at least a casual fan of one of the teams to pay money to attend.

the ACC tournament is, get this, for people who are fans of ACC teams.

RE: Big Dance
9 teams in the NCAAT is a record for the ACC...

[Image: C6w3zxdWkAAkTSR.jpg]

You guys realize that the NCAA just guaranteed the ACC will receive at least an extra $14.3 million per year for the next 6, right? [link to my calculations, etc.]. And that's if the league gets swept out in the first round - very unlikely.

More likely is the ACC racks up an extra $40 million over the next 6 years* - i.e. an extra Sugar Bowl payout, while the rest of the P5s settle for Orange Bowl payouts (or less). The great equalizer...

* about 25 NCAA credits, or 16 combined wins from 9 teams - same number of units as last year, but with 2 more teams this year.

That is the bottomline...HokieMark.

Glad Cuse and UNC earned max units last year...hoping to see at least 2 F4 teams again.
