    I am beginning to believe Cal was right for avoiding,we would have no chance simply because the forces behind the scenes are directing the outcome(s)

    The people hiring the officials, running the tourney are running ads for Duke. Can't say that it inspires confidence.

    I imagine the main reasons Cal didn't do it are:

    1) Cal hates thanksgiving tourneys. Hated them before this one, still does. Doesn't like 3 games in 3 days type tourneys at all in fact. Would skip the SEC tourney if he had a choice.

    2) This team isn't ready. Does no good to be out there and damage their psyche and pile up losses.


    The good news is no one remembers the Thanksgiving tourneys in March.

    These preconference events are great. Best competition out there and its a shame we dont participate in them. IIRC the last we did was when Wall was here and we did it in some POS gym (and the Keightly Classic doesnt count). The "we are a young team" excuse isnt flying anymore

    In hindsight I wonder if that helped sour cal on Thanksgiving tourneys or if that was already a given.

    I don't know but personally I'm tired of watching other teams play in these while we get our fill of Harvard, Monmouth, Troy and Illinois-Chicago. I'd rather risk a loss here and there with a challenge in November the load up on crap I'll be watching tonight
