If you are signing up for the 7 day slingbox trial to watch football on Thurday today might be the best day to do it. Volleyball game tonight is on SEC network and you can get that on Slingbox.

Does the school get money for hosting a tournament?

Be interesting to know how that works, how many you are allowed? Does a school bid for them? Does NCAA or Conference get a cut from each one? Do visiting teams get a cut, %, negotiated fee, just cost of showing up? There are a lot of them, believe UND is in 4.

If UND does get money, it would be nice to host a basketball tournament too, a regional one with SL/BSC/ and maybe a few others.

Agree, but I would think that during Christmas student break would not be good timing for attendance sake.

Most early season tournaments for Volleyball and Basketball(s) are money losers for the schools that host.  Because the host school is usually on the hook for lodging for visiting teams, sometimes meals and sometimes flights, depending on the arrangements and agreements. Plus as the host, you not only have to staff the matches or games you play, but also the ones you don't. From stats, officials, concessions, etc it can add up.  Usually a local business or several is sought to partner/sponsor to help offset but usually from what I've been told when you put together these early season tournaments, it's more about how much $ is an acceptable loss on the budget line, not how much money the school will make.

I'd rather try to get into one of the Pentagon/Sanford showcases in Sioux Falls.

Essentially you're paying for what will hopefully be wins, a tournament title and more fan interest if you do win.
