    besides 17K for opening round requirement is absurd...that's too high of a requirement. IMO.

    Not only is it not painted, it's not brick.

    On the four corners of the arena, architects have created vertical shafts, stairwells and utility towers that look like brick in the artists' drawings.But they are 3 foot-by-8 foot panels of anodized aluminum, terra cotta or brick colored.

    Yep, I've watched a bunch of 1st round games that probably didn't have 5,000 in attendance.
    I really hate Penn State! (And I'm not that wild about Iowa either.)

    You talk without any knowledge so often that it's really astonishing. Everything you don't understand is "absurd" or "utterly stupid". Ok, WHY would that be "too high of a requirement"? You think the NCAA is not a money making enterprise? When they have so many options that meet their seating standard why would they accept less?

    As for the reason the NCAA never went back to the bob...as I recall it wasn't necessarily total number of hotels that Lincoln lacked but a certain number of "quality" hotels. They didn't want more than one team in any one hotel. So they wanted 8 hotels of a certain quality. Not sure if Lincoln has hit that threshold yet but it's moot...the arena is too small.

    That doesn't mean the seats weren't sold. Lots of first round games will have empty seats as not everyone with a ticket attends every game.

    Off topic.

    Before you say there are not enough seat, look at the other arenas that have hosted in recent years, both first round and regional sights.

    AHW (Arena of Haymarket West) is big enough.

    If there are not enough seat than it just means that the value of those seat will increase as the popularity of events held at the arena increases. This would lead me to believe that it best serves the university to make Basketball very popular in Nebraska.

    2011

    Pepsi Center: 19,155
    St. Pete Times Forum: 21,500
    McKale Center: 14,545
    Verizon Center: 20,278
    Time Warner Cable Arena: 19,077-20,200
    United Center: 20,916
    Quicken Loans Arena: 20,562
    BOK Center: 17,839

    One exception to the rule in 2011.

    Air travel convenience is likely also a factor.

    Too small for the NCAA tourney. Good size for what it was built for though.

    So you have a great desire to have lincoln host the play-in games? I see.

    Although it seems Dayton has had that locked up for some time...so not sure they'll be moving that one.

    better than what we currently have, which is NOTHING.

    And Dayton has been hosting since 2001 so I concur it won't be moving any time soon...

    There is absolutely no reason why the Pinn can't host in the future...with the new hotel additions and what not (and if LNK would ever get more flights available) we can host in the future.

    Maybe the "play-in" games if you can pry them from Dayton. But it's not coming to Lincoln for subsequent rounds. Omaha had to increase to 17.5 to get it. You think they'd make an exception for Lincoln? The answer is no. And LNK won't get more flights because it doesn't need more flights. Some things are what they are.

    Haven't heard anything about that. Sounds like an idiotic, pie-in-the-sky governmental boondoggle.
