    It may have worked in the past when the "powers" with larger seating capacity typically made up the frozen four field, but with the growing parody of D3 it may turn into a disaster one year. But a packed small rink is hella better then the disaster of an enpty rink like this year was.

    How is the Salve goaltender not the most outstanding player? GAA <1.5, S% >.970, 102 saves for the weekend. I know he made the All-Tournament team, but he was the most outstanding player I saw all weekend.

    I have to imagine there will be some sort of seating minimum.

    Helluva game last night! It wore me out just watching.

    Congratulations to St. Norbert! You had to fight for it, and that you did.

    I wouldn't have argued with that. But Froese had an outstanding indivudual effort on the shorthanded goal Friday - which was the game winner - and IIRC had the primary assist on all three SNC goals Saturday. I think they went with someone from the winning team.

    I was hearing how young SNC was and that theY had like 12 freshman playing. After going through the lineup for last nights game I see only 5 freshman played? Salve on the other hand had 11 freshman in the starting lineup and only 1 senior. It was a great game couldíve easily went either way. Hats off to both teams the way they battled. Not impressed with the officiating either night. Goalies on both sides were outstanding. Salve opened up a lot of eyes and will be around for awhile.

    It doesnít have to go to the first seed. It has never been that way. It has always been a decision based not just on top seeds, but whether they have a facility capable of hosting or even good enough to beat out a lower seed from hosting. Lower seeds have hosted before.

    Having said that, I did ask a committee member what happens if all four participants have tiny facilities (like the very probable list joecct always posts).

    He said, "Then we pick one of those sites."

    Then it could be really tough to get a seat. That should be a welcomed change from the last ten years, right?

    I wonder if the same people who complain about low turnout for the semifinals and finals on the internet will complain about not being able to get a ticket next season?

    Kinda like a Weber State vs Utah State game

    We made it work years ago (3am sitting in line for tickets) we will make it work again for those of us who want to go. I hate the fact that family and close friends (classmates) may be turned away, but it is what it is.

    I agree tho...I bet we see a few of those crying about an empty rink, more upset when their team is in the Final Four at a dinky rink and they can't go watch....get the tissues out now.

    As I said earlier, if they allow a team to "move" their location and they split the tickets up evenly ...it could work....

    Yep. And, I firmly believe that any parent who is on the ball and expresses interest in attending the final weekend immediately after their sonís team punches their ticket, will be able to do so without much of a headache (even if itís at a 500 seat rink.)

    As a side note: everyone keep mentioning the capacity at Adrian and Hobart when they gripe about campus sites. I canít speak to Hobart - I remember when that place wasnít enclosed. But Adrian would be a fantastic site and has an incredible atmosphere. Yes there are only 500 seats (real seats, not benches), but with SRO that place holds closer to 1,000 and also has a restaurant that overlooks the ice.

    A parent I agree probably yes....grandparent, uncle, siblings...not so much. As I said before, I've seen it happen and gave up tickets for family to attend, and this was at a 2,500 seat arena. The NCAA only requires the home team to give a small portion of tickets to visiting teams (200 IIRC Prez?)...but that's based on a 3000 seat arena as "was" the requirement. That (keeping that ratio) would be less than 70 tickets in a 1000 seat arena...that would be 35 tickets in a 500 seat arena....


    Hobart is...well....Hobart.... they sold 1,000 tickets to the Geneseo/Hobart game this year and added metal bleachers behind the glass on the one end (as well as a port-a-potty which is an upgrade). You were not moving, but it was a great atmosphere and would be for a Final Four...no contest. Same with Adrian (tho have not been there in person but have seen my fair share via video and its outstanding).

    At the rate the teams are spreading out, no longer dominated by the select few large schools, as much as it sucks knowing a casual hockey fan might not be able to attend... let the kids have their fun a time or two. My other question would be...will this draw schools to either A) expand their rinks capacity and or B) build new rinks to hold 2500 / 3000 fans?? As long as visiting teams aren't getting sc*ewed getting a small allotment of tickets and or are allowed to purchase tickets at the home rink (was turned away once because I had a different address), ...but I can't wait for the #1 teams coach to cry when they get sent 1,500 miles to the #4 seed because their rink is bigger....who says size doesnt matter... lol

    I really don't see teams building rinks so that in one of the few years the NCAA decides to play on campus, if their team is good enough, they might be a host. That's a whole lot of "ifs", to me. Maybe programs that have a demand for more space will do that on their own, but a possible final four doesn't seem (again. to me) like enough. Especially when many programs are playing in community-owned buildings that may have other priorities or budget restrictions.

    When I covered the championship in 2002 at Middlebury, the first thing I saw when we arrived quite early before the first semifinal game were Middlebury fans standing outside holding up signs, "I Need A Ticket." And Middlebury has a decent amount of seats if I remember correctly.
