    I would prefer any configuration of a post season game to this, and I like this a lot.

    Hate to beat the drum, other than KATC (actually Matt Sullivan/UL) google around @ the tournament. I see that much ballyhooed "oh, the new AD and Alden is gonna fix the name issue by next season" isn't happening. That's a 2017-18 tournament. Who is dropping the ball now? Just as with Farmer, I'm sure someone from the university is reading this. Fix it.

    I used to enjoy the Cayman Islands back in the 80s and 90s. Grand Cayman has become very crowded since then, the traffic is really a mess, especially on the days when the cruise ships do the drop and shop. The water is still beautiful though. Should be a nice trip.

    When do we replace Ragin' Cajuns with the fleur-de-lis as our branding symbol? Ever?

    How long has the fleur d lis been associated with the university? Probably since the beginning with the crest. In sports for sure with the Acadiana Flag helmets. Maybe even prior to that

    Just bought my ticket package for this tournament. They are really proud of them, too! $60/ game with fees. Yikes.
