This shite pisses me off. I always want to go to decent preseason tournament, which for me is just location. This is nice because it is Destin, but then they set the final games on the same weekend as the TAMU game? Same weekend Penn State plays Michigan State. They should have made the finalas during the week, not the weekend.

It is obviously about people not attending their event either.
