This is why I f*cking hate conference tournaments

    F*cking Lewis wins the MIVA tournament and goes to Hawaii despite being unranked and having a 19-13 record. Ohio State was 21-8 before having to play Lewis, which just happened to get hot right when they needed. They entered the tournament barely over .500 with a 16-13 record. Where in the f*ck is Lewis University anyways?! The regular season champ should get the automatic bid...championship tourneys and title games do nothing but negate the regular season.

    Kind of like how Ohio State didn't deserve to win the CCHA crown, right?

    Conference tourneys exist for one reason - money.

    The increased exposure opportunities with more and more sports networks coupled with the legal requirements of Title IX - the need to max revenues even in sports that don't historically create a lot of them - add up to all collegiate sports looking for more and more reasons to play more games.

    Conference tourneys are here to stay...

    Yo, Rashmish, did I say that OSU deserved the CCHA crown?
