    BB tourney, football championship sites

    Big 12 Conference Concludes Spring Meetings; Future Championship Sites Approved For Football, Basketball :: <blank>
    The Big 12 announced that KC gets the '08 football championship and Dallas gets to show off their new stadium in '09 and '10.

    OKC gets '09 basketball and KC gets '10 and '11. They expressly said they don't want to lock basketball into KC and football into Dallas so expect more rotations.

    Possibly the biggest news is that the men and women are switching dates for the tournaments with the men playing Wednesday through Saturday and the women Thursday through Sunday beginning in the '08-'09 season. This was at the request of the men's coaches who wanted an extra day of rest before the NCAA tournament. It definitely makes it a little tougher for people to miss three work days instead of two which kind of sucks.

    Ugh, I don't like the moving of the mens tourney days. It was always a big deal to get that buy and start the tourney on fri. Ohh well at least KC is represented instead of the south getting everything like usual. Plus there is no Houston in the mix which is a good thing.

    I heard the switching of the dates was because they wanted the championship game to play more of a factor in seeding for the NCAAs.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.
