Say the tourney runs Wed (a day earlier than now) - Sun...obviously one team from each pool will sit out Wednesday while the other two teams in their respective pools play. Then the teams that have Wednesday off will have to play their round robin games Thursday and Friday, play a potential semi final Saturday, and a potential final Sunday. That seems like a bit much to me.
As I understand it, the coaches put forward the semi-final game and it was approved by the CIS. What wasn't worked out it how to manage the tourney schedule so that, as you mentioned, teams don't have to play 4 games in 4 days. Since UNB had been awarded the hosting before these tourney changes, those changes couldn't be imposed on UNB.
