the ncaa basketball tourney is in town that weekend, get your hotel  rooms locked up well in advance. there will plenty of out of towners in coumbus that weekend. looking at the sites columbus could easily get uk,  ut, big 10 teams.

expect much higher rates for the downtown hotels. the teams will be staying downtown.

i can't think of one multipurpose arena that is great for basketball. The size of the court and ice surface are not compatible. This pushes the seats too far from the ends of the court. The corner views are compromised as well.

thanks for the insight, even after getting beaten badly I did see a few encouraging signs,  Smith is rising fast, he is competing in every match, this might sound odd but I liked the fact that Hayes tried to compete last night, he was clearly outclassed but put in a good effort and was not as passive as we have seen from him too many times.

Many think this is a team built for tournaments, my issue is that they aren't piling up wins against tournament level competition enough and more telling not getting enough bonus points against lower ranked guys. I see some guys with conditioning issues as well, wrestling multiple times a day takes its toll.

as a former football and bb official i rarely make criticisms about judgement my biggest complaint is not getting in the proper position to see a play or anticipating a play and not really seeing the play in its entirety, especially in football.

I see that some of the guys are competing in Edinboro today including Malik . A question for Andy, how does the coaching staff handle these type of events? Does the university send a coach or two, what about an athletic training type staffer?
