2018 NCAA tournament regionals

Unread postby mdneilson » 17 Mar 2018, 20:47

With UND eliminated by BU's win, and pairwise mostly locked, here's my educated guess on our region.

Sioux Falls
SCSU
MNSU
UMN
AIR FORCE

Government shutdown possible Saturday. Air Force athletics we're effected by the last shutdown. Odd senerio worth considering if motzko gets to choose.

Beautiful! Eliminating the Gophers makes the loss that much more tolerable.

I revise UMN for UMD.

Maybe the NCAA won't care about attendance since UND bought out the rink months ago.

I can see Michigan coming here, but not any of the eastern teams since they can have another western team close.

Depends on how much they decide to screw with bracket integrity.

I expected this, obviously. The NCAA refuses to send Eastern teams Westward if it can avoid it. And This all but guarantees a MN team in St. Paul. All the NCAA cares about is money - they've never given a single thought to bracket integrity.

Sioux Falls should be a great bracket. Mankato will have the home advantage. Tickets should be available since North Dakota fans are going to be offloading a boatload. Should be a good crowd with Mankato, SCSU and Duluth all there.
