Detroit makes pitch for future Final Four

Postby Rogobob77 » Thu Jun 07, 2018 9:48 am

Article from today’s Detroit News:

“Detroit hosts NCAA in first big pitch for Final Four”

https://detne.ws/2M65kiP

“Manuel, Michigan's athletic director, was in attendance on behalf of the Big Ten, which is interested in coming aboard as a co-host with Michigan State, Smith said.

“Officials from Western Michigan and Wayne State also were at the event. Detroit Mercy, the host school for first- and- second-round NCAA Tournament games at Little Caesars Arena this past spring, were not there.”

Question: why wouldn’t Detroit Mercy be at the table for this?

Maybe because we did it so recently? Is there a wait period before hosting another? And where's Oakland?

Recently? The last Final Four in Detroit was nine years ago in 2009. The earliest that Detroit could host again is 2023, so we would be talking about at minimum a 14 year interval. Detroit Mercy is the only D1 school in the city and I can’t imagine why we would not send representatives to this event.
