    I agree. It's not like C-USA is making bank by hosting a conference tournament. Just send the regular season champion (have a championship/playoff among only the teams with the best conference record if needed).

    That TRUE Conference Champion will likely go further in the NCAA tournament too, rather than risking having our arguably strongest team potentially left out of the NCAA tourney because of shady CUSA tournament game officiating.

    I bet they do. But it's not from tickets sold.

    Part of if it's from the television/streaming partner. But the bulk may be cash subsidy from the host city's convention / tourism bureau.

    I'm not sure if it's about getting the league more than one bid or a better seed for the tournament champion.

    The Sun Belt is copying our test. They changed the answer enough to say it's different

    Men’s Basketball Conference Divisional Structure and Regular Season Schedule for 2019-20In the next major portion of the strategic plan, the conference has adopted a scheduling format for the 2019-20 men’s basketball season – dubbed the “20-game smart schedule” – that will see the conference split into two divisions (East: Appalachian State, Coastal Carolina, Georgia Southern, Georgia State, South Alabama and Troy; West: Little Rock, Arkansas State, Louisiana, ULM, UTA, and Texas State). Each team will play a 16-game schedule with five home and five away games played against divisional opponents and three home and three away games against non-divisional opponents. Based on the resulting standings of those 16 games, teams will then be placed in four pods - Pod A (#1, #2, #3), Pod B (#4, #5, #6), Pod C (#7, #8, #9) and Pod D (#10, #11, #12). Each team will play the other two pod members once home and once away for the final four games of the 20-game schedule. The regular season conference champion will be awarded based on the results of the full 20-game conference schedule.
    Sun Belt women’s basketball teams will continue to play non-divisional, 18-game conference schedules.

    " Benson, MacLeod, and Adams all admitted that the schedule change is not meant to get more teams into the tournament, but to bolster the RPI of the one bid that’s guaranteed to mid-major conferences, so it would only help their best teams."

    If they used the word "mid-major" then they've already lost the battle.

    They can't define it, but they can say it.
