Our conference is so big (area wise) and not followed well enough to have a neutral site tournament (unless you enjoy have empty basketball arenas. I prefer they just let the winner of the regular season host the tournament like they used to do. Especially since we never get 2 teams in the tournament, it gives a deserved advantage to the regular season champ (I actually hate the idea of end of season conference tournaments).

Boise is a decent drive from Northern Colorado, about six hours. I like the move.

Yeah, 11 to 12 hours in nice weather. In the first week of March, that drive could get ugly fast.
