12 team single elimination

The ACC tournament is a 12 team single elimination tournament with the top 4 seeds receiving a bye.

We just play the other 4 games to make everyone feel like they had the chance to fully participate. Oh and to waste the pitching of the top 4 seeds.

Game with UVA was just a participation game for both teams.

Exactly. It’s just the mindset of having 2 game with 1 not mattering that bothers people and confuses them but this is exactly what it is. Good post


Devils Advocate: How about no ACC tournament at all ?

We didn't even have a baseball tournament until the early 1970s ... why do we need one at all?

We have an ACC basketball tournament because it makes mega bucks from TV and ticket sales, etc.

What is the incentive to have a tournament in baseball? There's no money in it.

Just eliminate it altogether and award the regular season champ the title.

Hard to disagree. Unless you can make the tournament profitable, it doesn't make a lot of sense.

Even worse, the current format pays for teams like GT to stay around all week even though they were eliminated on Tuesday.
