    459 posts for a single baseball game discussion. Is that a record for any athletic contest since this forum began? Shows what a crazy game that was and how important baseball is to this fan base.

    I believe that once or twice did we score 19 runs for a 4 or 5 game week. So this is like 4 or 5 games of offense all in one. Probably about the same for runs given up. I think we may short on posts a few for this game.

    We can only imagine if each of us would pay only a dollar per our post(s) jon could add 459 dollars to alleviate his (for this year) debt. .. jon you have one amazing bride.

    Ps. Once eye knew a guy whose bride would walk into his office and raise up his keyboard and say, "thomas, there is no money under here"

    This is how you take luck out of the equation and award the school that has earned it all year.

    For your earlier "best of 3" final to be legit, they need a week off.

    Yep. This process would require 2 weekends, but it is worth it to avoid the insanity of a tournament.

    Or, we could just award the autobid to the regular season champ. You know, the school that has proven all year they are the best in a 3 game series.

    Look. BOP has the position that the conference basketball tourney needs to end. He is correct. Well, the conference baseball tourney makes even less sense on multiple fronts.

    Except this weekend may have helped get us 2 in. Troy was bubble out and is now probably in.

    There is middle ground here. 6 team tournament, double elimination. 1 and 2 seeds get byes. This helps ensure the teams capable of boosting their resume for an at-large get that chance, while also making sure one of the best teams gets the auto bid.

    I don't think you do away with the tournament.
    What needs to happen is they need to add days to the damn tournament schedule. End the Conference season a week early, play your tournament over an entire week and get rid of your stupid championship game rule that allows a team with a loss to only have to win once.

    For the life of me, I will never understand people's affinity for tournaments.

    Cut the cord people.

    Guess we can just get rid of the NCAA tournament then. No need for a tournament to crown a champion. Just give it to the team with the best record.

    I'm with you, no need to do away with it. But you can make it a better tournament by eliminating bottom dwellers. The last time a team outside the top 6 seeds won the auto bid in a tournament format (pool play years excluded) was 2004 (#7 WKU).

    The NCAA postseason in basketball is a tournament. Even with that fact, people like BOP have said it is time to do away with the conference tournament.

    The NCAA postseason in football is merely a continuation of the 1 game per week model. It's the nature of the sport.

    The NCAA postseason in baseball is the 4 team regional/best of 3 super/4 team division "regional"/best of 3 championship.

    Nowhere in there is a 6, 8, 10, or 12 team tournament. It is a failed model that the NCAA no longer uses. The only reason conferences still do it is the "everybody gets a trophy" mentality.

    Cut the cord.

    It seems like it would be up to the coaches and ADs in the conference to work out what is in the best interest of the programs overall for the post season. I'd really like a press conference where Tony and Dr. Maggard jointly discussed the ideal regular season, conference tournament format (or not), and the advantage/disadvantage. My gut tells me that in a given year, we might regret the format... and in other years potentially benefit from it.
