  • Re: 2012 NCAA Tournament: Bracketology

    The Green Bay regional has tickets for all sessions for 66 bucks. That is 40 to 60 dollars less than I thought it was. That comes out to 22 a game, which is not that bad. I wonder if that is as low as they go.

      Not counting fees, tickets range from $60 in Bridgeport to $90 in St. Paul. My guess is the St. Paul folks figure with Minnesota in the house, drawing huge crowds will not be a problem, despite the steepest price among the four regions.

        Fact is tickets to any NCAA regional are way overpriced.

          Based on the outcome in Fairbanks, either Union or Miami would finish 8th and avoid playing Minnesota in St. Paul. The higher seeded team gets the #2 seed in Worcester and plays Maine.

            Totally agree, Priceless. Also, interesting that UMD, although the overall #1, does not have normal #1 credentials. Their RPI is lower than both Michigan and BC. Thus, it is less bothersome to send them to St Paul, and a potential 2nd round matchup with Minnesota, than if they had highest RPI, highest TUC ranking, etc.

            Were it the case that UMD were head and shoulders above everyone, I would consider sending them to Green Bay, to keep them away from Minnesota.

                  In this scenario, Worcester replaces St. Paul as the bracket of death.

                    It's jaw-dropping that Notre Dame won't even make the tournament. 1A on that list is New Hampshire.

                      Why? Notre Dame really hasn't been playing well. I'm not really surprised at all.

                        I think the question is, "does UMD outdraw UM and MSU in Green Bay?" I think they do.
                        I'd like to get another eastern team, preferably Maine in Bridgeport to help attendance but can't make that happen.
                        I think it is more than likely (60/40) though that Union gets upset by someone in the ECAC so they get 2 bids rather than one.

                                The other option would be to find a way to get them to Green Bay. It would require shipping Duluth East, though.
