Good news about the Cancun/Bahamas idea. There are so many schools, inc. mid-majors, who participate in these events, that we will surely be able to get in good venues, year-over-year, if we WANT to. Maybe the past approach was about cost, preplanning, networking, etc. There are several reasons to get in these tournaments, but from where I see it, the best reason is that you usually get 3 good tests of what you have, early in the season, on a neutral court. I like the Ford idea, but maybe this could be a gathering closer to Christmas, and maybe the same 4 teams nearly every year: Belmont, Murray/WKU, NKU/Marshall, Miamo-O/Ball St.. A good way to keep good teams on the schedule, a drivable venue for all, casino town with hospitality, etc.
