DePaul would be in that B bracket.
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

So for 2024, Marquette hosts Wisconsin. They will play a road Big 12 game. And it sounds like they will come up with some home grown 4 team tournament.

And sounds like Atlantis in either 2025 or 2026.

I would guess that a Marquette sponsored MTE would two or three other P6 programs. Or maybe two mid-majors and one additional power program.

I'd love to see an annual Jesuit Classic with 4 schools from among this list (field and hosts rotate each year):

MU
Creighton
Georgetown
Xavier
Gonzaga
SLU
BC
Holy Cross
Loyola Chicago
Loyola Marymount
Fordham
Fairfield
Canisius
St. Joes
Santa Clara
San Francisco
Detroit Mercy



Obviously you can't have schools from the same conference but a potential field could be one year

MU
Gonzaga
Loyola Chicago
Holy Cross

Another year

Creighton
BC
SLU
Santa Clara


Xavier
St. Joes
Loyola Marymount
Detroit Mercy


etc

What if this is the Chicagoland Classic we've been dreaming about for ages: Illinois, Marquette, Notre Dame and one other (dream is Kentucky) play at the UC.  Throw in a few local mid-majors (Loyola, Bradley, Valpo, Eastern Illinois) in a B bracket

Northwestern?

If they weren’t terrified of UWM, be a great time to have them in a local tourney along with St. Thomas and UWGB
Tis a shame, 'tis a rotton shame, for if ye can enjoy the walkin’ ye can probably enjoy the other times in yer life when ve're in between. And that's most o' the time; wouldn't ye say?

Looking at the Duke and Arizona MTEs, I'm not so sure. I doubt there are many P6 programs that want to sign up for an MTE that gives them true road games, unless you create one that rotates between a few programs.

Good point.

Expect another two high-profile games, one being a home-and-home. Like you, I expect Atlantis in 2025 or 2026, Marquette to push to be in the PK90 in 2027, and back in Maui in 2028.
