    Not sure about the relevance of New York here.
    Its not a joke, why is one ok? The NCAA acts all superior and a name is name...its ok in one instance but not another? Its all about the same thing. Not to mention the NCAA chooses to base its operations in Indianapolis, Indiana...

    And how many DI programs do you drive past from NYC to Portland?
    I guess easterners can't be bothered with more than a 100 mile drive. < shrug >
    Make the drive from Manhattan to Portland, Maine then come back and talk about it in comparison to Grand Forks to Sioux Falls.

    I know Rochester bid the last time selections were made, but didn't get picked. I don't know if they bid this time around.
    Last time we were a #1 seed.

    Carly Simon never wrote about Sioux Falls (or Grand Forks).

    Heck, I've made the drive from Manhattan to Portland, Maine, in one day. I've also driven from Manhattan to Grand Forks in one day.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Springfield is definitely west. Ask anybody who lives east of Needham.

    You obviously didn't know that Grand Forks was the inspiration for The Stuff That Dreams Are Made Of.

    because some schools or conference needs to be host and if possible bids should be from off campus facilities, if on campus was allowed, PSU wouldn't be the only one.

    The proximity of the host to the venue is irrelevant. Alaska-Anchorage hosted the 1999 FF in Anaheim; Alabama-Huntsville and Wisconsin (separately) hosted the two FFs held in Tampa

    Generally though regionals are relatively close to the host but 4 hours in the west/Midwest isn't unusual for distance from host to regional.

    Re: Future Frozen Four sites

    Do we even know if certain bids were denied? Under the current 4 neutral site regional system, i don't see why anyone cares that Pennsylvania is the "midwest" regional. It's just a name, semantics. If you want a new system like campus games, fine. But if we don't know who bid then I don't know how you can complain. Is there a "western" bid that was laughed at by the committee?

    We should ask the Futile Four committee.

    the point is that the system is broken if no one in the west/Midwest is except for UND and PSU.

    the big10 is a midwest conference. psu is in the big10. ergo they host a midwest regional.

    Traditional west/midwest bids would be somewhere in Minnesota and Michigan. Are venues in those states putting in bids? Is there something scaring off potential bidders?
