RE: Future of the CAA Tournament
The city can make a huge difference. Only two teams make it to the finals and only four make it to Sunday. That leaves six teams with fans who may only play on Friday and/or Saturday and the tournament is over. And most fans are there for their teams, not the CAA tournament as a whole. A good city turns it into a mini vacation, win or lose.

So if your team loses early....you just drive home?

When we'd lose early in Richmond, we took the train to D.C. for a day. No sense in driving 5 hours to watch a 2-hour basketball game and then immediately drive 5 hours back. And obviously you wouldn't do this if you have a night or 2 booked at a hotel, which most people do when they're planning their tournament trip.

Baltimore was a step up in that regard, and North Charleston is even better.

You can tweet to @CharlestonCAA and give them suggestions about what should be done for next year's tourney.

I gave them my feedback on their wonderful security personnel.

"a pork chop" signifies you're only gonna need one. I'm thinking we better buy a few.
