    Yes it would be profitable for Bemidji/Duluth/Mankato/Colorado Springs/Anchorage/Omaha/Houghton/ or St. Cloud, not so much for the Gophers because their team would actually have to be in the tournament to win it.

      MTU could always borrow NMU's Superior Dome, put a temparary rink in there and host the Final Five in Marquette.

        The reason the Final 5 is in St. Paul is because that is where it makes the most money, for every member school. Not because Minnesota is hosting it. Every school makes the same amount of money off of the tourney, so if it were held at the DECC, for example, thats something like 13,000 less tickets to sell for every game. Kiss those 6-digit checks from the league goodbye.

                As of right now I am going to the Fri afternoon game only. Trying to arrange sitters for more than that, but plan on hitting at least a portion of Rube gatherings that day.

                    I'm with rwd on this. She's brave. And you know what? She could probably break any of you over one of those thighs.

                      I'm with you on this one; couldn't agree more. The tourney nets the most profit in St. Paul, so that is where it needs to be located. Furthermore, I hope the WCHA continues to schedule the games such that there is the opportunity for the largest gate (outside of Saturday--which they haven't and anyway, it won't be a problem anymore after this year).

                      I understand why some think it is unfair, but I'm pretty sure their school's AD would disagree. When the Final Five starts losing money in St. Paul, then the discussion can open as to where it should be moved.

                      DISCLAIMER: It does help I live so close, but I'd travel to wherever it was held, and I'd be there every year.

                                You realize that half the conference is in Minnesota, and it's quite a haul from Michigan Tech as well. [insert "Like Tech will ever have to go" comment here]. Plus, Omaha will never make the money St. Paul does.
