March Madness Returns to Detroit

Postby JimmyChitwood » Tue Nov 18, 2014 1:01 pm

The new hockey arena will host an early round of the 2018 tournament.

The article doesn't say whether we will be hosting the event. We have hosted years ago at the Palace, and in 2008 and 2009 at Ford Field. It would be a shame for someone else to host, but it is a lot of work for our athletic department with little reward. Either way, good to see March Madness return to the City of Detroit and it will be good to have the new venue.

Freep does not like UDM, rarely mentions us in anything.

From the Detroit News, we are clearly the host and quotes from Vowels.
