Goodbye Coliseum, Hello Cathedral?

Could the Palestra in Philadelphia really be a front-runner for the relocation of the CAA Tournament?  Is taking the tourney from the backyard of one school to next door of another really the answer?

Via Andy Katz:

The CAA is also looking at options for moving the conference tournament out of Richmond now that VCU has split. The deal with Richmond goes through 2014. C-USA decided to pull its conference tournament out of Memphis because the Tigers are leaving for the Big East. C-USA moved its tournament to Tulsa for 2013. The CAA is now investigating the feasibility of putting its 2013 tournament at the famed Palestra in Philadelphia, which would be a major coup for league contender Drexel. Drexel’s campus is a block or two away from Penn’s Palestra homecourt. Baltimore and Atlantic City are also being discussed as potential future CAA tourney homes. A decision is due soon.
