    BU tried this back in 1988 when they played Cornell and Maine played Vermont at the old Boston Garden. Attendance was just 3,417. But, "Times have changed," you say. I say, "Maybe, but only for the worse." Just take a look at the attendance for the Capital City Classic this season.

      Wait until you hear his idea to have MN, WI, UND, DU, CC, Tech, UMD, MN St, UAA and SCSU all do play-in games before the final five play at the Xcel Energy Center.
      Attendance would be horrible.

        The end.

Many of us have a tattoo waiting in the wings, WHEN (not IF) the Gophers are champions again.

          Thoughts?

          I think Sean is correct on this one. "Big Name" teams from the West routinely come to Boston and play BU and BC on consecutive nights. These games struggle to come close to selling out. Our arenas have capacity of only 6200 and 7800 respectively. I cant think of any reason that if you combined the two into one night that we could come anywhere close to doing well at the 18,000 seat TD Garden.
