Conference USA is a joke
The Pelham Civic Center would've been a better environment than this

Where exactly are the TV cameras going to go?

Is this a one year deal?

This could be realllllllyyyy funny to watch. In a bad way. But funny nonetheless. Watch cameras end up behind the goals or something.

High school bleachers are better than those risers. Heck, the bleachers in Field of Dreams were better!

Those sideline bleachers are at such an angle that you could barely see over the row in front of you. The end zone seats may be the best seats.

Brian Maclin has made some career choices that has put him in the position of having to defend the undefendable. First closing down UAB football and not the Frisch tournament.

Thanks Mackin. No wonder Ray was able to do what he did.

RE: Conference USA is a joke
I want to know how many times the game on the opposite court is going to stop because of a whistle from the other game. Not to mention the distraction of the PA announcer, bands, etc. That is, if they even have a PA announcer.
One thing is certain, after winning it all on this massive stage, the winner will be no where near ready to play in the Big Dance.

But hey, at least the LaTech fans will be happy.

The Frisco Location for the Tournament was announced 6 weeks before Mackin was announced as a deputy commissioner of CUSA. He might not of had a hand in it.

This is absolutely pathetic. To call this bush league would be a vast understatement.

Gotta think that this is a money saving ploy. In light of the reduced TV deal and money in the C-USA coffers, they probably got a sweet heart deal from Frisco to host.

Maybe it's a good thing this isn't on real TV.

This is Mickey Mouse on the highest level. Better an empty arena than an empty floor.

Why did they sign a two year deal before they saw how this first year went?

Anyone know what kind of bid Frisco/The Star gave CUSA?

I just want to have been a fly on the wall when someone at CUSA called the Cowboys, hopefully asking to speak to Jerry.

RE: Conference USA is a joke
Mackin did not close down UAB Football or pick this tourney site. Just sayin'

Pelham is not the home of the Dallas Cowboys nor would give everyone the opportunity of seeing this complex and museum. Had we properly supported the tourney here it would not be there.


Our support here was abysmal except for three years ago and then it was just ok at best. Now blame what you want for that but there is no getting around that. MTSU was the only program that stepped up and to some degree WKU and brought fans.
