From the Advocate: http://2theadvocate.com/stories/070904/spo_ltigs001.shtml - "Part of it is that the committee is trying to move toward larger, metropolitan areas," said LSU Senior Women's Administrator Judy Southard, who will begin serving a five-year appointment on the committee in September. "It's a two-year experiment where they're ultimately trying to move toward neutral sites." Neutral, except if you're Texas, Tennessee, Fresno State, North Carolina, UConn, Minnesota, or Washington. F*** the NCAA. NCAA awarded bids to Dallas (Reunion Arena), Fresno, Calif. (Save Mart Center), Minneapolis (Williams Arena), Seattle (Bank of America Arena), Chapel Hill, N.C. (Dean Smith Center), College Park, Md. (Comcast Center), Knoxville, Tenn. (Thompson-Boling Arena) and Storrs, Conn. (Gampel Pavilion).
