NCAA final 2019-2022

Recommended Posts

My impression from reading the article was that Indianapolis (Lucas Oil Stadium) or Atlanta (Georgia Dome) might be in play for the rotation along with the possibility of Vegas. 

Given that the Georgia Dome is closed, and due to be imploded in the next couple of months, I doubt they'll be using there.

I was not at the UNI dome nationals, but heard the sight lines were crappy. Would it be different in any other football Dome?

 

Did any one try to view the action from the worst seats in Detroit, that is the biggest site it has been used by wrestling, but no where near sold out. I expect that would be the practical limit of sight. 

 

There is no need for more than 8 mats. It is too bad NHL does not use Olympic Hockey arenas, 200 by 100, not 200 by 85. That would mean sufficient table room.

 

St Louis has a football Dome no longer used. Why does St louis need a domed stadium, even if they got an NFL team. Could it be modified into a fan and competitor friendly (say) 30,00 arena

It'd be different because the new buildings have a lot of moveable stands to be configured for things beyond football. You're not moving the stands at UNI. You can move them other places to provide different configuration. 

 

If people think we're going to plop 8 mats in the middle of a field, that's not how it's going to work.

I'd love for that. I'm from Indy and I'd want to see how the city handles it and would definitely be able to go. Just one time. Plus I hope it'd get schools like iu and Purdue interested in getting some good kids there LOL

Doing a search for Lucas Oil Stadium basketball you can see what it looks like.

They can even cut off half the arena and have more seating than St. Louis. Plus they would have a lot of room for warmup mats and other backstage necessities.

I would be pretty happy if St. Louis doesn't get one this go around, they have had it enough already. 

 

I really don't see the NCAA going to a football stadium, I doubt a football stadium even bid on the NCAA's or we would have know about.

Do we know ANY of the cities that put in a bid?
