    But on a serious note, the NCAA establishes a budget. Whether you like the amount or not. And they expect each sport to stay within that budget. Now having said that, they will at times be flexible. And they have flown three teams (or more) during the course of a tournament. We'll see. IMO, it wouldn't surprise me if they put the championship weekend out west no matter how many flights it takes.
    I know I know. I guess it should have said exaggeration and sarcasm alert....

    And BILP - CWA has commercial service to MSP, ORD and DTW
    So you're telling me that instead of driving 100ish miles to the Green Bay airport, UWSP drove 30 miles and then flew 90 miles?

    You said ďunless you take a private jet you canít fly to Stevens Point.Ē

    I suppose, technically , thatís true. But I was pointing out that CWA is the airport that serves SP area.

    And while there is the Stevens Point Muni Airport, a 20 minute drive to the airport (CWA) is certainly reasonable, and closer than the airport in many larger areas. And a flight to Green Bay, Madison or Milwaukee isnít necessary.

    Just some helpful geography for those thinking that for Point hosting they would have to fly to GRB

    St. Norbert flew home alone in 2014. The only time it shared a flight was out of Appleton on the way out in 2018.

    Also for context, Norwich and Plattsburgh on the women's hockey side chartered a flight out of Burlington, Vt. in 2017 together. Flew out together and flew back in together. However, the women also had the consolation game so both teams played both days.

    I believe Plattsburgh, Middlebury, Elmira all flew out of Albany, NY together in 2013 for the women's hockey final four in Superior, Wis. as well.

It is what it is, and worrying about what is fair or not fair gets us nowhere. I'm sure that it would be possible to get three flights (instead of one) for the "Less than 0 degrees Celsius 4", but it will probably mean that they will really hold the line on flights for one of the spring sports.
