RE: JMU hosting CAA MBB tourney
Both Bourne and Joey D spoke this week about the on campus tournament being a dry run for would could happen after the 2 remaining years in DC.
If JMU can run a smooth operation it lends credence to the potential of the future.

Bourne has talked with other leagues (low majors) that already Hold their conference tourneys on campus sites.
It always comes down to the money and the campus site along with rural cost of living for Team hotels/meals etc. It would be interesting to know if JMU is providing the arenas rent free and how much of a difference that is from the payment to the DC sports & entertainment arena.

Coaches would hate to play on an opponent’s home court in the tourney, but I like it as long as it is earned. In other words, if the regular season champ gets to host the tourney it makes perfect sense. Those that complain would simply need to perform better in the 18 CAA regular season games if they want to host.

The problem with the CAA is A few of the schools have facilities that are not worthy to host. Can you imagine Drexel finishing first and trying to host 10 teams at the DAC in Philly?
80% of the schools could do it with their existing facilities. Some better than others.

RE: JMU hosting CAA MBB tourney
I think leagues like the Caa should be creative- to optimize fan interest, attendance, how the games look on TV, strike the balance of rewarding the regular season champ, and position the league to represent themselves well in the NCAA tournament I favor a hybrid approach.

Early rounds at campus location of better seed and semi finals and finals at a neutral site over 2 days (weekend) to maximize attendance and revenue.

Play in round
7 hosts 10
8 hosts 9
Winner plays at better seed

Quarters
#2 hosts winner of play in round

#3 hosts #6

#4 hosts #5

Semis (neutral site) reseeded
#1 plays worst remaining seed
Winner of #2/play round winner
Winner of #3/#6
Winner of #4/#5

This or similar makes sense, a lot more sense than a airplane hanger venue that few will attend in an area where getting mugged walking to the game is 50/50.

The Richmond Coliseum was a dream compared to what we have gotten since the VA teams bailed for better conferences.

Richmond was a lot of fun with VCU, Mason, ODU and Richmond...and JMU was somewhat good at basketball then...

The best days lie ahead for the CAA, great news that JMU is leading the creative effort.
