What's taking the NCAA so long?
It amazes me that almost 3 years from now, the NCAA still hasn't named a host site for the 2013 Men's East Regional site. When the other sites were announced back in September, the smart money had Madison Square Garden as the money, but that was until the arena pushed back it's renovation completion schedule to the Fall of 2013, meaning it's likely to wait for 2015 or 16 before putting up a bid. Who else could serve as the host? It appears now that IMO, the HSBC Arena in Buffalo, the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, and the Comcast Center in College Park, MD are the leading candidates to host the East Regional, unless the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia is convinced to move up from hosting preliminary round games.
