    Re: Placid certainly not flaccid

    I feel like allot of the d1 fans could care less about dIII, we could probably get tickets from people who buy the package for the weekend who would otherwise just throw our their diii tickets

      Isn’t there a lottery system for getting DI FF tickets if your team is not in-the-mix (and you cannot get pre-allocated tickets)? I seem to recall having a hard time scoring tickets way-back in 2001 (Albany FF), and if not for my connections with an arena sponsor, I would not have been able to get in. However, that was also when the venues were smaller. As the popularity of DI college hockey has grown, so have the venues... but I do not know if the venue capacities have kept-up with the demand.

      I seem to recall talking with “Kuz” about this a while back, and he & his wife have gone to just-about every DI FF over the past 15-20 years, but he has no problems with getting tickets due to his “seniority” (for lack of a better term) in the lottery system. Does anyone know if this lottery system still applies to the DI FF?
      The lottery is still in effect. It has changed for 2013 where that the highest priority gets first pick on what seats they want, then so on down the line to the lowest priority. I lost my priority and don't really care as the seats are going for around $200 for the two nights. Compare that to D-III around $30 for 3 games. However the secondary ticket market here on USCHO still works and you can score tickets with no problem.

      Hotels around the Wells Fargo Center are > $100 / night. It may be cheaper in Delaware or across the river in Trenton/Princeton (do not go to Camden).

      As for TV coverage, don't get too excited... there is a whole thread dedicated to that topic in the Café (Complain About ESPN Thread). Last year’s DI FF coverage was terrible, with a good portion of the games on ESPNU and ESPN3. The Championship game was broadcasted on ESPN2 (link to the semis/finals). Nothing made the flagship channel ESPN... nothing. So it is likely that we will not see the DIII final game get any increase in TV coverage as a result of this move... at least not until the ESPN/NCAA deal on all championships (except squeekball) expires, which is in 2023-2024.

      Oh, and I simply must quote this (out of context, of course), with apologies...
      The TV coverage for the NCAA D-II and D-III lacrosse finals was on ncaa.com. There is nothing to assume that E$PN or CB$SN will televise Friday night championship.

        If the NESCAC teams pull out of participating in the NCAA Tournament due to the extension of time it will take to complete the championship, would the NESCAC teams still factor into figuring the number of teams in the tournament per the 6.5/1 ratio, or would you have to subtract them out, likely reducing the NCAA's to 9 berths?

          That, my dear Southern Tier friend, is the $64 question.

          I hope some common sense comes to the heads of the D-III Presidents and they put the kabosh to this.

            I wonder if it is even on the radar of D3 Presidents....

                With Tim Hale retiring, I guess that removes him from the contenders.

                    They're still members of the NCAA, and could play in the NCAA tournament if they chose to, so I doubt the NCAA would not count the teams because they're voluntarily not participating. Just my guess though.

                        I don't think that they are counted in the ratio for football - they opt out of post season FB, too.

                          I would not be crazy about starting the D111 season Nov 1st. Currently our expenses to the championships every year are significant enough. We have accepted that we take a back seat to D1. We also like the fact that we do not have to compete with them. We like what we have now. If this is a minority decision, it will not be welcome
