RE: WKU: 2 consecutive sellouts
What’s crazy to me is that both games did/will have bigger crowds than when 4th ranked Louisville was here a few years ago. The fact that they’re now selling standing-room-only tickets is just insane. As Chad Bishop and Dominique Yates said on their podcast this week, fans are coming to watch this team, not to see a “big name” opponent like Louisville or Ole Miss.

Good for wku and the league.

It's a shame that our basketball tournament will probably have 200 people there instead of somewhere sensible in the east where the highest concentration of support exists with odu, Marshall, mt, and wku.

Nashville would be great. I think southwest flies to almost every place we have a member. Four of the bigger fan bases within a 4 hour drive. If we aren't going to do it at the number one teams place I'd rather have it close to the top teams.

Exactly this. Nashville would be great. Yes I know OVC and SEC are there, but there are plenty of places in Nashville that would work for what we need. I think if we are playing in a football practice facility in Frisco, TX, we will be just fine finding somewhere in Nashville to play our games. East coast schools have done so much to keep this conference afloat the last few years, but we can't even get a tournament near us or any decent bowl games close by. Sad.

Uh, the conference tournament has been in Birmingham the last couple years which is a relatively painless drive from both WKU and MT.

ODU and Marshall night have something to complain about.

What about Louisville as a conference tourney location? Fairly easy drive from a bunch of members. (WKU, MT, Marshall) and some decent off the court activities.

I'd almost definitely travel to Nashville. I'd think about Loiusville. But for me (and probably at least two or three hundred other ODU fans), Charlotte is where the tournament needs to be.

Louisville has nothing for the fans compared to Nashville..... not even close

I agree it’s not quite as good but you can see Churchill Downs, Louisville Slugger, do the Bourbon Trail if your team gets knocked out early, etc.

IMO (and I’ve said this in past threads), the tourney should be in ATL at McCamish. Even Rice, the smallest school in the conference by a wide margin, has a significant alumni presence there.
