    REA is on UND owned land; but, UND is a dry campus by state law.
    Special exception had to be given by the State under the lease agreement that allows the building on state lands.

    (UND doesn't take full ownership of the building until like 2030 or so.)

    Yup.
    The NCAA requires the teetotalism at their events.

    Check your map. Pierre is in the middle; Sioux Falls is closer to IA, MN, and NE than it is to ND.

    Food for thought:
    UND (host) to "Hawks" Falls -- 320 miles
    Allentown (Midwest Regional) to Worcester (NE Regional) -- 275 miles, and Bridgeport (East) is on the road in between.

    How could the NCAA allow to have it at SIOUX Falls?

    Well that's true but different conversation. Hawk's thinking was that Agganis wasn't considered on campus at BU because they have a liquor license. It's irrelevant.

    -- but yeah, they require teetotalism but sell alcohol outside the arena for 5 hours before the game starts at Frozen Fest. Hypocrites.

    300 miles straight south on I-29 from Grand Forks. Hop skip and a jump and you are there.

    Well, the Frozen Four host site was full of ... that kind of logo ... this year.

    I'm from Denver and I'm not even mad. Saw this coming from a mile away.

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves and assume that North Dakota will actually be there next year...

    No, the NCAA forbids men's basketball from having the school in their host regional. That is to say if UConn hosts basketball in Hartford they can't play in hartford

    Considering that UML now owns the arena outright and that it is contiguously connected to East Campus, I'd be inclined to argue otherwise.

    They did put a bid to host at Amsoil for either 2013 or 2014 but did not win. Having the top four seeds host regionals would be the best set up but obviously legistics are difficult for the arena (holding a weekend open, locker rooms, facilities, etc)

    I am starting to wonder if because of the lack of quality neutral sites and ticket sales that the coaches will be looking to change the format for regionals. We are starting to see a rotation for the same places and few changes out west as well.

    Also why I posted what I did... it was long argued that "no alcohol" was because the school put it on the campus map.

    No, it's because a previous chancellor wanted to not deal with student drinking.

    It was never a NCAA provision.

    New chancellor comes in (Marty) changes it.... eventually gets the school to buy the arena

    Six teams was perfection, honestly. Two games a night for two nights. Enough to entice locals, no worry about a three day session... two regionals likely hosted in populated places

    Everything else has been down wind of that

    Thanks for the geography lesson, I didn't know that. I also definitely wasn't using the phrase "in the middle of" in a tongue-in-cheek slang manner.
    I was formerly a tasty 7-11 beverage. Now I'm a fan of defunct hockey teams.

    Or inside the arena if you spring for a "hospitality package".

    If you've ever driven on that road you would know that it would be quicker to drive from Allentown to Fargo in the time it takes to go from Hartford to NYC. Or Bridgeport to NYC.

    Are you saying the University said the rink wasn't on campus and that's why they got the liquor license? Because that's incorrect as well.

    Sadly, you are correct. :-(
