I didn't know so many school were flying to Canada, the Bahamas, Mexico, and Europe to play. I know it gives the teams more practice, but I'm not sure I'm a fan of this. Despite my objections quite a number of big time basketball programs are participating in overseas practice. I guess it's another step to gain an advantage.

Saying that, if the Crimson Tide decide to go to Cancun for practice I'd probably make the trip to observe myself.
