    I just think most D3 arenas (Kreitzberg included) could not handle a men’s final four crowd nowadays.

    You’d have to have at least 2500 seats I think to host it and have enough seating.

    A campus site when the host doesn't make the finals makes for a small crowd - If the Cadets had not made the finals, you would not have seen the kind of crowd that was there last night. I agree that if the facility is too big it spoils the experience. On the other hand, Lake Placid in 2010 was an amazing experience. There was a lot less atmosphere in 1999 and 2004 when it was at Kreitzberg and Norwich lost in the semis. It was great in 2003 when Norwich won at Krietzberg, but I think the idea of a right-sized neutral site is way to go.
