Re: “Why the ACC Tournament has lost its luster, and how it can be recovered

@ACCfan4REAL: I think you should go look at a couple of things: First, foul calls for/against UNC during the Doherty years compared to Roy Williams. Second: foul calls for/against Duke during the Pete Gaudette season, compared to Coack K with the same players.

I think you'll find that great coaching has more to do with calls going one way or the other than some grand conspiracy which magically took a season off here and there. They know how to mold disciplined players who know how to take charges, know when they can't get away with reach-ins, etc. Also, the Big East Tournament is held in MSG, the home court for St John's for much of the season. They certainly haven't figured out that whole "home cookin'" advantage there. There's no Greensboro Hex on teams from out of state.

I like the 3-division idea better of the two. And keeping the worst teams out, I think, adds more prestige to making the tournament and value to the regular season games. You have to earn it to get there. Not to mention the savings on airlines and gas throughout the season. I really don't think any ticket money would have been lost if Wake Forest wasn't a part of it this year.
