The tourny will never be held in South Carolina or Mississippi for the time being because of the Confederate flag issue. Interestingly enough, I wonder why the NCAA hasn't considered playing a few games of the tourny in B'ham? I know for a fact that no Confederate flag is currently flying over the state capital. Due to political pressure, state legislators moved to take the battle flag off the state capital dome.

Birmingham has hosted first and second round games in the past and is scheduled to do so in 2008.

The biggest constraint regarding the tournament being held in Mississippi is simply the size of the arenas:

Reed Green Coliseum (Southern Miss) - 8,095
CM Tad Smith Coliseum (Ole Miss) - 8,700
BanCorpSouth Center (Tupelo FireAnts) - approx. 9,000
Humphrey Coliseum (Miss State) - 10,500

There is virtually no chance of any of these places hosting Men's NCAA tournament games, except possibly the play-in game if it ever moves from Dayton.

The Sun Belt conference, however, apparently may be interested in Tupelo for the conference basketball tournament:
