Sidenote: Coaches met last week to discuss expanding the Hoover field to 12 teams. I hope they keep it at 10.
I kind of wish they would end the tourney or make it single-elimination like softball.
The good teams don't trot out their top starters until weekend and are often eliminated by then.
Another suggestion would be to go back to the split tourney and let everyone play. With 14-16 teams this would make more sense.
I believe we would have had 9-10 teams in some prior tourney if we did not cut our own field to top-8.
SEC East Tourney in Kodak or similar minor league parks would be great stuff. The West could go to whatever cesspool they wanted.
