Wow! You are going to be able to hear the whistles from the other court. That is embarrassing. They tell players to stop at the whistle. Could be some extra activity due to players not knowing which court the whistle is coming from.

1. I imagine FT defense is going to be really good.
2. Looks like about a 12 inch drop from the court to the floor at the out of bounds. I hope nobody literally breaks a leg.

The good news is that they are only using two courts Wednesday and Thursday. If we can survive this format on Thursday, then it won't be an issue beyond that.

I hope you get free binoculars with admission.

Too many bleachers. Maybe they could use these.

ODU's NCAA team sheet. Nothing we didn't know, but it's a nice summary of what the NCAA uses for at-large bids and seeding if they make the tournament.

You just blew Judy's big surprise announcement for halftime of the final game. Next year's tourny will be in the parking lot of the conference HQ, next to the smoker's gazebo. The picture you posted was the test set-up. 05-nono

Way to early to think about seeding but since we are just fans we are free to speculate what would happened if we win 3 in Frisco. Nothing on here to impress anyone too much other than our road record and that is mostly against low RPI teams. This would improve some after a tournament win but my guess is that this would be a 14 seed resume. The best we could probably hope for would be a 13 if some decent regular season champions from one bid mid-majors get knocked out in their conference tourney.

Yea, I would say 13 or 14 seed.

Holy crap. I have made a lot of jokes about this setup, but it looks far worse than I actually expected. It is straight up an AAU tournament.

That certainly does look Minor League to me. Actually it looks more like LOW Minor League. Maybe it will work out better than we anticipate. If not then can we please get some adult supervision for this conference.

This is incredible. The powers that be in this conference think this is acceptable, but do not think separating the men and women is acceptable. I have no words.

Conference USA basketball is just a dumpster fire. Some teams are improving but the leadership in the league is nose diving. Judy McCloud is the worst commissioner in D1

I would love for him (or some other AD or even coach) come right out and say "this is a F'ing joke" and see how that plays out...However, I doubt anyone would do that which is why this happened in the first place.

We need to petition CBS sports to take this off the air. Seriously, I don't want the few random viewers to see this farce. We'll be the laughing stock of all collegiate basketball.

Well, as Punk said, it'll only be for the early round games. The semi-finals and Finals are the only games on CBSSN and it'll just be one court for those games. This will only affect our game Thurs night.
