This will be my 5th. First time was as a college student at Lehigh in 1975 at Princeton. Got tickets at the door for all sessions except sold out finals. After the semis my friend and I duct taped the latch on a dozen or so doors leading into the lower levels of Jadwin. Were able to sneak in one of them later on for the finals, and got to see two Lehigh wrestlers win - Mike’s Frick and Lieberman.

17

First was 1972 at Maryland when our high school coach took us - got to see the Milkovich bros, Schalles, Carl Adams, Ben Peterson all win titles.

Then 1991-1994, then 2003 - 2017 with a couple of breaks. Will be back for Pittsburgh next year.

1997-2012, 2014-2015, 2018 and my favorites were Philadelphia, Iowa City, and Omaha. I understand the central location of St Louis but I really like them moving it around. I thought St Louis was nice the first and second times but after that the outside the arena has gotten kind of stale in my opinion. I would make the trip for a west coast tournament. Also if I were the NCAA I would offer Florida a championship when someone starts or restarts a DI program there. I would love to make it a 10 day trip to go to the Sunshine state.

I have been to 2 NCAA's (2008 and 2009 in St. Louis). Saw Caldwell beat Metcalf, and Boise State had a team at the time. Now, my username is obsolete :(

Been to several ones. First NCAA championship that I ever saw was on tv while I was living in Houston maybe in 1978 or 1979. I cannot remember. However, I finally got to attend the NCAA championship with my HS teammates in 1987. Tickets were cheap back then so we were able to watch it on HS expenses. Good times. We saw the end of Iowa “X” run. Dan Gable was walking around burning the path hard. He get so emotional and intense. He would breath hard and it was before championship! We also saw the John Smith dominance. He was lightning quick with a big tank.

Oh yeah. We also witness the headgear throw by Jim Heffernen (Iowa, now Illinois HC) after his upset loss to Tim Krieger (Iowa St) It was a big impact tourney that time. Royce Alger (Iowa) dominance of Kevin Jackson (ISU); Rico Chiapperilli (Iowa) upset win over unbeaten huge Darryl Pope of Cal-Bakersfield. Kelly(ISU) spladle pin of Brad Penrith (Iowa); Ricky Bonomo’s third NCAA championship. Wow. That was lot of headlines that time. Over time, I attend several NCAA championships. I attended Cael Sanderson’s fourth NCAA championship in Albany, NY. Oh yeah. I also attended Pat Smith’s fourth NCAA championship in UNC arena. I attended the first championship of Logan Stieber. Good time. Nowadays, I watch all mats on ESPN3 with my friends. Alas, they live far and with eh money. So we get together to watch NCAA on three monitors. We will do it again this weekend.

Our run of 15 straight ends this year, with ticket prices more than doubling.  What's up with that?

From when to when? Boxes have jumped over the last few years. I thought the last real ticket increase was a few years ago (other than from 2006-2007 for me when it went up from $0.)

Face value $ hasn't changed much, but online prices sure have.  Can't find anything close to face value anymore.

There was a time when I participated a lot on this board.  Software and time have changed that.
