Ha ha. No problem, made some money (about .37c an hour) coaching with that funny-shaped ball.

As for "good idea" - looks like Hawkins stole Izzo's rebounding drill.

For a East or West Division crown at the end you can't say someone had a "softer" schedule, you played the same teams. OK there is a different mix of home/away games for the opposite division but at least you played the teams an equal amount.

But does basketball divisions really matter one way or another? In the current environment the MAC is getting the post-season tournament champ into the NCAAs, that's it. Are teams raising "Western Conference Champs" banners as a source of pride? Does it help in recruiting unless you see your university during March Madness?

This is the right answer. When all teams in a conference cannot play the same schedule, then you have to move to divisions and somehow reward the winner. Giving both division champs a bye in the conference tournament is also the correct reward in this case. There are "wildcards" (byes 3 and 4) for the good in the "stronger" division.

Without moving to a 22-game conference schedule, what the MAC does is perfect.
