RE: 2018 C-USA Tourney. Gut-check time
The semifinal times are frigging ridiculous. WKY quarter is at 9:00 and their semi if they advance is at 3:00 the next afternoon. Brutal. Just another reason this conference is a joke.

Of course I’m pulling for a quadruple O/T game between UAB and WKY. But that turnaround time sucks.

Yeah that's horrible. Does any other conference have a turn-around like that?

2018 C-USA Tourney. Gut-check time
The ladies have early games Thursday but get the late games Friday. Why not just keep the men in the late bracket? Especially when they swap again for the final? At least we would have the 3:00 and not the noon game.

Will any of the games be televised? Streamed? I haven't seen anything and am hoping we are not limited to the CUSA pay site.

Yeah I'd just assumed have the Semi's on Facebook, Stadium or BeIn and have them Fri night or even better Sat with the finals on Sunday.

Just realized the times were Central Time. So that helps a little. Semi game would start at 4pm on Fri. Can at least walk down the street to the bar and watch the second half after work.

Our semi finals are at noon and 3pm on a workday. That just seems ridiculous to me. Of course the place is going to be empty. Then again, I guess when there is no "local" team, the thousand in attendance are already in town and off work. 5 and 7 makes much more sense, and with the game being on the CBSSports channel, you would think they'd want it broadcast at a time when people could actually watch. Everything about the way CUSA does what should be its premier event just seems wrong. At least we can watch Thursday in the evening for free.

I haven't checked CBS' schedule for that day but I'm willing to bet that it being on CBS is why it's in the afternoon. CUSA wasn't deemed good enough for the Fri evening slots. Like I said if this was the case I'd rather it just be on Stadium. Nobody will be watching it Fri afternoon anyway so might as well make it so fans can watch.

It says CBS Sports so I assume they mean CBS Sports Network (CBSSN) and not the main CBS network. I don't get CBSSN so I have to find a free trial of some service that does offer it.

Do we know if the school will be setting up watch parties like they did let year? I get back from travel for work that day so I'll be available to watch the game.

RE: 2018 C-USA Tourney. Gut-check time
Here's my take on the upcoming CUSA Tournament. We are the #2 seed! Not 4 or 5 but 2!!! We need and should be very competitive with a really good chance to win. I don't want to hear about MT having our number, it's time to win the damn thing! I think it is "Remember The Titans" time for Jeff Jones. **** or get off the pot! We the fans have waited long enough and this team has the talent to win if coached properly and smartly enough. If JJ wins the tournament he returns next year. If not he needs to go. Absolutely no reason for us to not win this tournament except for one....Jeff Jones. It's his time to show what he is made of.

I'm more concerned with WKU than MTSU. WKU is the team that is a real matchup nightmare for us. Hopefully UAB can run them out of the gym again.

Agreed. WKU is not only a nightmare matchup, they seem to always have a good game against us...especially Justin Johnson.
