FWIW, Toledo and Richmond have a home-and-home series that started last season Richmond.
But won’t this also knock out mid teams that lose, allowing lesser deserving P5s a foot hold?

Doesnt this bracket set up the best for us?Meh.
Drake, Belmont, and Wyoming were all very good last season. This may not be a tournament with a bunch of star power, but there are plenty of high quality wins to be had.Doesnt this bracket set up the best for us?
BC, Belmont Wyoming are the best three games we can hope for or am I sleeping on Buffalo?
IMO, the value of these tournaments is to play teams that we would otherwise not be able to get a home game with. Knowing we are getting an ACC team right off the bat is perfect. Its unlikely BC would agree to a home-and-home with us so I'm glad we know for sure we are playing them. I know they haven't been good lately, but lets say they surprise people and have a good year, that means we'd have a decent ACC win under our belt.....assuming we win.
I also think this tournament layout is best case scenario... BC is almost guaranteed to beat a ranked team next year in a let down game in the ACC. Wyoming and Buffalo should also be very good. Not sure Drake or Belmont will be as good as they have been the last 3 yearsI like this. Beat BC and you should be playing 2 out of Drake, Buffalo, Belmont, or Wyoming
Very good point. Even if BC is terrible, you know they at least will have opportunities in the ACC against good programs and probably will get a fluky win. Mason just has to beat them so that they can maximize the benefit from a tournament like this.I also think this tournament layout is best case scenario...

On the bright side, they did have wins over USF, Notre Dame, Clemson, VT, NCST, Wake, FSU.Oh great.... chance to wax that BC a**. BC was 13-20 overall last year, 6-14 in the ACC, in a down ACC league overall. They lost to Rhode Island twice and Saint Louis.
