That's cool, but -- this is a pet peeve of mine -- it's not really a "tournament," since we already know who we're playing and what days we're playing the teams. It's more like a "classic" or a "round-robin."

In a true tournament, there's a bracket, and team A plays team B, team C plays team D, and the winners play each other, and (if it's double-elimination or there's a third-place game) the losers play each other. After the first game, you don't know what time your next game will be or who your opponent will be.

According to the Tennessean link, we already know the entire schedule, who we're playing and on what days. So it's not truly a tournament.

These events have become very important, not only to set the tone for the season ahead, but to get some quality non-conference, neutral field games on the resume for tournament selection.
