Conference Tournament selection

Postby iSASO » May 19th, 2013, 6:11 am

Is it true that a school which doesn't play baseball voted to host the tournament in Normal? Is there some collusion going on?


“I’m disappointed it’s not at Wichita State,” Rasmussen said. “Too often, the vote is decided not based on quality of facilities, not based on quality of program, not based on number and quality of your fan support. It’s based on geography.”

Is the selection based on saving travel expenses?
Random MVCFans.com member, circa 2007: "Gregg Marshall is in over his head in this conference."

The Valley is a joke. The baseball tournament should be held at either Wichita State or Creighton every year. The soccer tournament should be held at Creighton every year. Good thing we don't have to deal with this crap anymore, it's utter stupidity.

Trust me, you aren't getting away from people voting for championship locations based on geography. It happens in every league.

It's the "nerdy" way out.

How was the atmosphere in Normal today?

I'm sure it will be better in Terre Haute next year!
