    Nostalgia is Nice, But ...

    Maybe the OWH is biased toward building a new stadium, but the article last Sunday painted the picture that the NCAA wants stadium improvements and a larger stadium (around 25k) for the CWS.

    The scenario sounds exactly the same as KC's issue with Kemper Arena and the Big 12 wanting a new facility for the men's hoops tournament. KC was stubborn and the Big 12 Tourny hasn't been to KC for awhile. Presto KC builds a new arena and the Big 12 is back.

    It sounded like the NCAA contract for the CWS is 10 years and Omaha was looking for a 20 year agreement if a new stadium is built. I guess if Omaha is willing to lose the CWS for 10 years- the status quo is great. I'm sure there is a community out there (Orlando mentioned in the article - ties to Disney & ESPN) that will pony up some serious $ to get the CWS.

    Indianopolis is surveying their town if they want to bid. They stole the NCAA from KC 5 years ago.
