December 19, 2019 - 20:49 PM

The Kansas State men’s basketball program earlier this week announced it will once again wear its popular lavender throwback uniforms this season — but, this time, it comes with a new twist.  Rather than don lavender jerseys with dark purple […]

A pretty lackluster matchup here.

NDs wordmark is so tiny. I didn't realize their nob was small as well. 

 

And Indiana. They have their state outline in place of their nob. But honestly it looks like nothing is there 90% of the time. So it almost appears the numbers are centered too low on the jerseys. 

 

Sloppy stuff.

NCAA Unveils Logo for 2021 Final Four in Indianapolis

December 22, 2019 - 16:11 PM

The NCAA unveiled the logo for the 2021 Men’s Final Four yesterday during the annual Crossroads Classic in Indianapolis. As you’d imagine based on the venue of the unveiling, the games will be held at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis […]

Pretty generic logo, but at least they seem to be moving away from the template approach the last two years. If only the NFL would do the same with the Super Bowl.

 

On a side note, does the NCAA realize that Indianapolis, Atlanta, Houston, New Orleans and San Antonio aren't the only cities that exist in the US?

Indiana's never worn names on back so that's not too bad. Notre Dame suffers from UA's inability to have numbers the sane size as everyone else.

There are fewer locales than you might think with a venue capable of hosting the Final Four that have decent enough weather at that time of the year to host it.  Although the fact that Minneapolis was very successful this year combined with the fact that they now play it in April might open up a few more places.

In 2004, the NCAA signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Indiana Sports Commission. Part of that agreement was that the NCAA "will ensure that during any five year period" Indy will host five events: the men's Final Four, the women's Final Four, preliminary round games in the men's and women's basketball tournaments and the NCAA convention.

Link to the MoU

Hosting is also basically a "kickback" for $1/year lease for their HQ. They'll also host in 2026 and likely two more times before 2039, when the MoU expires, but the Hall of Champions HQ has two other 10-year options for occupancy.

They raised the seating minimum to 70K back in 2009. Indy, Atlanta, San Antonio and New Orleans are the three cities which a car really isn't needed between the stadium, hotels, and Hoop City/Bracketville/ or whatever they call the FanFest now at the local convention center.

 

Minneapolis/St. Paul is closer to that than Houston, DFW, or Phoenix as it's not as spread out as those three and light rail is direct to the airport.

You're also going to see Los Angeles and Las Vegas added to that list of hosts with their new stadiums. Not to mention any new domed stadium rumored to be built -- DC, Charlotte, etc.

2027 is the first available date. Inglewood put in a bid for 2024-26, but lost out alongside Arlington and Detroit.

And those cities, not to mention Las Vegas will probably get overlooked again.
