    Default New 4 team event in 2018

    I'm not sure how a school like Texas sneaks into an event like this over someone like Arizona, but a very cool idea nonetheless.

    It is a cool idea. And it's always possible Miller/Byrne didn't want to do it, seems like a tiring and strenuous trip.

    A long, tiring and taxing road trip with lots of distractions. Seems there are easier ways of playing top competition.

    You do not want to be a team that goes 0-3 on that trip as you are heading into conference play. Could really mess with your team.

    That's a pretty cool idea. I'm sure if we were in it, the replies would be enthusiastic

    Arizona seems to consistently be left out of these big events. One can only wonder why. At least we weren't left out for Oregon Or Stanford like some other big event that's going to take place. Nike sure as **** hasn't been doing us any favors as of late.

    I was thinking the same thing. It is safe to assume that no players from the four schools will bitch about "not getting paid to play college ball". Great idea for these programs...

    It says Mich St. AD is responsible for setting these up. Maybe he has a problem with Zona and/or Miller as to why he keeps shafting us

    Yeah, I wonder this too.

    Arizona doesn't get involved in the Champions Classic, or a high level event like this. Makes you wonder who makes the decision not to, or if Arizona just does not get asked to be involved.

    Do you guys know why SDSU replaced Arizona on the naval ship a couple of years ago? The invite was nice, but what the hell happened afterwards?
