Yawn this logo screams Indianapolis (sarcasm)...

 

Jokes aside it's nice actually. Looks like a future template but without any individuality for the host city.


Indianapolis is basically known for IndyCar, basketball, and being a giant circle.  Unless you could find a way to work in an image of David Letterman or Dick the Brusier, this is pretty much the best you can do to represent the city.

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?

The only cities who reach the requirements to host are Ford Field (Detroit), Alamodome (San Antonio), US Bank Stadium (Minneapolis) AT&T Stadium (Arlington), Lucas Oil Stadium (Indianapolis), Mercedes Benz Superdome (New Orleans), Mercedes Benz Stadium (Atlanta), NRG Stadium (Houston), State Farm Stadium (Glendale), with SoFi Stadium (Inglewood), and Allegiant Stadium (Las Vegas) when they open. Not Sure if the Dome at Americas Center (St Louis) still meets the requirements or not. Since the NCAA went to the large domed stadiums in the late 90s only Tropicana Field (hosted in 1999) no longer meets the requirements as NCAA upped the capacity requirements)

 

Another issue is a lot of the newer stadiums (US Bank, Mercedes Benz Stadium, SoFi, Allegiant) have a lot of open translucent or glass letting light into the stadium. NCAA wants those covered for the games to give the schools equal lighting. SoFi lost out on its bid because of this as most of the roof is translucent.

They bid group has to pay for it themselves, as seen in Minneapolis as it cost them $4.6M.  $7-9M for SiFi or Allegiant is essentially a small cost overrun for this project as a whole if you get two or three Final Fours in the lifespan.  

 

The Dome at America's Center is 67,000 in the stands, BEFORE the NCAA seating system.  The 2005 Final Four was held prior to the new portable seating system.

The Oregon women are breaking out some really nice ‘99-‘00 throwbacks today:


This is their fifth new uniform unveiled so far this season. I’ll be curious to see if they break out the road version of these throwbacks at some point as well or just go with the home white version.
