How do we know we are better unless we get to play it off and really prove it year after year?
Even in tennis, I would like the rounds of 64 & 32 played at a host, then the 16 & 8 played at another, then the final four be at the championship site where the singles and doubles tournaments are. I'm sure it would get more attention to tv if it were more isolated and concrete. Realistically, OU could even start the singles and doubles the day of the finals with players not represented in the championship.
I'm all for that. The 16 and 8 round should be at different sites. Let the college sports fans have a chance to see college tennis at its finest in more places. No need to stay holed up in one place for two weeks.
A tennis final four would have more meaning as well.
