    Probably true... although on the other hand, Portland is not significantly farther from the Boston area schools than Manchester and Portland is arguably a cooler town so you might get some bump from that.

        PC is hosting the 1st/2nd round of the Menís BB tournament the weekend before which is likely why Brown didnít put in a bid to host.

          And as I said before, these numbers are strong enough where the NCAA won't be looking to change anything. Up to the coaches (like Mike Hastings etc) if they want to voice their opinion and push for a different format.

            Yale and Sacred Heart have bid to co-host Bridgeport. Since this past season it has been SHUís home rink.

              I thought Fairfield usually bids with Yale to keep Sacred Heart out of it. I know that bid usually has multiple schools involved. Got to think Worcester is bidding

                Is Albany still in the mix? Otherwise it always seems to be the same 4 (Manchester, Providence, Worcester, and Bridgeport).

                  I was at Hartford for the hoops tourney and that place was a mess for a crowd of 15k plus. Trash everywhere, bathrooms not cleaned etc...

                    No one gets home ice advantage. I think we can agree on this. Although if make to the Frozen Four you might not come back.

                        The prices for those tickets will be astronomical.

                            Maybe the NC$$ will change the rules so any school that bids automatically makes the tournament!

                              2nd Round top 4 remaining seeds host 2 of 3 series.
                              Frozen four at a neutral site single elimination just as it is now.

                              Yes we have to go to 3 weekends but that should be easy to do since there is already a weekend off in the current format.
                              This was exactly how the tournament was set up from the mid 80s until 1991, except with 12 teams instead of 16.
