Didn't take David Teel long to ask John Swofford.


He got another interview in Brooklyn.

“I think it’s important for the league going forward to continue to have some rotation that touches the entire footprint to some degree,” Swofford said during a one-on-one interview Tuesday as the tournament debuted at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center. “And by that I’m talking about the southern part, the Mid-Atlantic and the northeast part, because we’re a league now that runs the entire Eastern Seaboard."

“This has been our signature event for a long time. Our football championship game is becoming more and more a signature event, but that’s two teams, that’s two schools. This is everybody, and in order to be a true league, you’ve got to be fair to every segment of the league. And that’s also what builds fan bases throughout the footprint.”

Looks like the Tournament will continue to rotate up and down the footprint.
