    What helps is those December tournaments ( Atlantis, Maui, etc) that allow multiple Games against quality teams.

    Neutral site games are a different category altogether.

    They do, but Atlantis got us into the tournament two years ago.

    People that play sports know the difference. What does that tell you about them?

    Next up: any Syracuse win in the Carrier Dome doesn't count as a quality win.

    I'm waiting for this one: Any 1st or 2nd round NCAA tourney win played at a site within 60 miles of the campus of the winning team will not count as a win unless the margin of victory is at least 60 points. (This will be known as the UNC - Duke playing in Greensboro every year rule).

    The NCAA should just get rid of conference tournaments and go the route of the FA Cup in soccer.

    FA Cup is a tournament. Over 700 teams were in it last year. My point is, make for every school. Obviously the better teams have multiple byes.

    play them in the Dome, give them a large percentage of the gate, call it a home game for them...and let them bat last.

    Let them wear their white uniforms.
    Oops. That didn't work so well with the mis-matched SU jerseys and shorts vs. BC.

    It's already relevant information that they strongly consider anyway when comparing the bubble. Now they are just going to make sure it fits into the key metric every outsider looks at "Top 50", which I guess is now "Quality Wins".

    While this change may help separate the P5+BE bubble teams from each other (which is good), it will also help separate them even further from the non Big 6 schools (which is bad). Non P5 bubble schools already suffer from lack of opportunity compared to P5 bubble teams, and now the P5 bubble teams are going to get even more opportunity for quality wins.
