If I read the article correctly, it looked like the brackets/sites and respective games for each were pre-determined based upon seeding-regardless of the name on the jersey. And since once seeding was completed, either UR or VCU was going to get a home game, they gave it to the higher seed. If UR was seeded higher, they would have gotten the home game. To the victor belongs the spoils.I have to agree with Mooney. Something should have came out in advance to prevent this from happening. Something like, change when designated seeds play their games. I’m kinda on the fence about this from a personal standpoint. I like the famialirity of playing at home but not what it could do to our at large chances losing a home game in the quarterfinals.
After seeing that graph someone put up about how the A 10 was next to last in conferences with regards to percentage of scheduled games played, it sure does seem plausible this was mishandled as well.
