Not so much. I misread about the pool play.

But we keep it in Durham for the 15 loyal fans who support it there

However I have mixed feelings about moving it myself after making some good memories there last spring

Any format that includes the term "pool play" is still a joke.

I liked that the tournament was more centrally located. Made it easy to get to for most of the schools. Louisville is not close to anyone. Not a day trip to cheer on your team.

And 5 hours to Durham is a day trip? Not !!!

big deal....i DETEST the round robin format...the changes are just "window dressing" for their stupidity

Round Robin still a fail...

You will end up with one team at 2-0, one at 1-1, and one at 0-2 for a ear winner in some pools, but I others you will have all three tie at 1-1 and you will have to spurn two teams and take the higher seeded sowing in. This is the complete opposite point of a tournament. Unless you win every game you can't play your way to a championship as a lower seed.

But hey, at least BC gets to play two games before they go home........

If your going to guarantee 2 games just go with a double elimination format.

Exactly. Pool play just eats up pitching

Three games in one day starting on Tuesday and running through the week with twelve teams having to play? Just wait 'til the first thunder storm rolls through Louisville during the middle of the first game. You get the evening game? Take an afternoon nap and be ready for a long night.

A pool play format which leads to a four-team, single-elimination bracket to determine the league champion.

What a complete load.

Leave it to the ACC to over-complicate a simple twelve team double elimination tournament bracket.

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.


This new pool play is even more powerful stupid.

single elimination:(as round 1) to play against byes for 8-team double elimination beginning in Round 2.

I've been wrong two times, but this isn't one of them.

It is very difficult to believe this proposal came from the league coaches!
What were they smoking?!

I can't wait to see the tie breaker rules for a 3 team pool

Absolutely horrible decision, why not let all 15 teams in....and give out particpation medals?

+1 to pool play consuming pitching

This has the feel of "inclusion" and that makes me sick.


Swofford is an absolute moron.... M O R O N.....

what a monstrosity!

I didn't think it was possible to make a format worse than what they had but that UNCFool has done it!

Just as the time that teams need to be resting young arms heading into the NCAA

the blubbering fool creates a 6-day tournament with the best teams playing 5 out of 6 days.

what a #$&@^%$#&&@^%^ fool!


Swoffy sucks. Doesn't want his tarholes left out again. LOL***

Why are you blaming Swofford?
Did you not read the part where it says this proposal was made by the coaches?

I know it is hard to believe but it clearly says this was proposed by the league coaches, not Swofford. You can't blame everything on him. Here is the quote from the article:
"The championship format, originally proposed by the league’s head coaches..."
I wonder who, among the coaches, if anyone opposed this.
