In case you are wondering, since the ACC uses pool play for their tournament, with each team playing only two games with seeding as the tiebreaker, anyone but the top seeds is automatically eliminated after its first loss. That makes it single elimination for the two lower-seeded teams in each pool and, essentially, double elimination for the top seed.

Fair--I think not.

As long as the ACC remains focused on conflicting goals – a maximum number of teams and a minimum number of games – the tournament is going to be less a determinant of a true champion and more of a baseball exhibition with a championship weekend at the end.

I call ACC pool play the Twilight Zone of college baseball. What defense do they make of it?
