Is there a benefit to tournies like The Legends Classic that I’m overlooking? It annoys me that even if the stars aligned and everything broke our way against one of the big boys, we don’t get to advance. Do we enter those for some “exposure”, and the opportunity to play in the second, regional round? Or is there a financial benefit of some kind to the program?

I think there is the normal financial benefit that comes with playing at a high major. However, I think the real reason the staff loves these tournaments so much is that it is 4 games in one package. With the frequent complaints about scheduling difficulties (and how late we release our schedule every year), the idea of closing one deal that equals 4 games is probably pretty enticing to the coaches.
