    Re: 2013 NCAA tournament to the Well...

    surprised they got it... i go yr after yr and the well is to small... they weren't going to give the tourney to a place that could hold less than 20k...

    as much as i am glad DSM got it.. it isnt even close to big enough... i think the Well can only hold 13.5k when they have the 8 mats laid out for State... I think 2 yrs ago in St Louis it averaged 18k for all 6 sessions... NCAA is going to have to make up the money somewhere... so instead of paying 170 it will probably be $200-225 a ticket....

    While its not as big as some others, I'm sure it can hold more than 13.5K for wrestling. It can hold 16,110 for basketball. I can't see the wrestling mats taking up 3K seats worth of space. I would guess wrestling capacity is somewhere in the neighborhood of 15K.

    So does this mean ISU is the host team?

    Probably. Unless it's the Big 12 like they've done for basketball.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    This will event will be filled with Hawk fans. I've also heard it's a package deal where nationals will be there 2 years in a row. Just a rumor though, so who knows if it's true. Either way, it'll be 70% hawk fans in attendance.

    I wonder if they'd ever put some of the wrestle-back rounds in the barn and utilize both arenas. My guess is its much better to show off the Well.

    Will be 90% Hawk and Clone fans there.

    Wells Fargo Arena seats 15,181 for hockey games... that will be the max seating for the NCAA finals... they wont have any seating on the floor like they do for the concerts... the only people that get to sit on the floor is the wrestlers and officials...

    They have to push seats back all the way around to get the 8 mats laid out on the floor and the head table... like i said i think it is 13.5k maybe 14k when they do that...

    Vets is out.. arent they putting that floor in to host more big conventions at the beginning of 2011... I remember them putting that info in the paper... Because they were having events turned down from the Well and Polk County Convention Center being so far apart??

    You obviously didn't see what they did in Omaha this year. One end had floor seating for the finals. Added a couple hundred seats.

    I believe that was more for the wrestlers, officials, and the NWCA members if I remember right...

    There were fans, with tickets, in chairs on the floor at Qwest Center.
