I’d go to Madison in a heartbeat if the goofs made it.
Well, Loveland is the big winner.
If you need any more indication that the NCAA cares more about neutrality than people actually showing up…
No Portland, Maine! Too bad. Would have been a fun City for a Regional. I guess the $30+ million renovation to the Arena a couple of years ago didn't make the grade. Time for Portland to think about building a new modern arena.
At least if UND doesn't make it chances are you can get a Minnesota team or two to Fargo. But if Denver finally runs into a stretch where they miss a tourney or two? Good luck with Loveland.
So next year, any teams from the Midwest are flying somewhere no matter what...
As mentioned, Denver's fanbase is going to be needed for this plan to have any shot at succeeding... I can't work out the numbers to where this is a financially viable option for the arena **shrug**.
It's never too early to start the Pre-game festivities
Go Cats!!! GO BLACKHAWKS!
Cuck the Fubs... Let's Go WHITE SOX!!!
Wildcat Born, Wildcat Bred....
I suppose Loveland could still work in 2020 if Denver doesn't make it provided North Dakota actually makes the tourney and you can get them there.
I am enjoying all the donkeys on Twitter complaining about Allentown not being in the Midwest. Give it up already. Midwest is just a name at this point.
Allentown is the least objectionable location, IMO.
Would be nice to see them scale back the ticket prices but doubt that's in the cards.
By my count, the distance between the "Midwest" Regional and the West Regional is 1,708 miles.
That also means there are only FIVE west schools within 500 miles of a regional site:
Allentown - 164 to Penn State, 448 to Ohio State (next closest 510 to BGSU)
Loveland - 40 to Denver, 120 to Colorado College & Air Force Academy (next closest 530 to Omaha)
Another big F U to the west. What a joke.
