    Default "Leathernecks need to get Bigger and to get Better"

    Article about the last weeks game against WIU. Good read.

    Interesting quotes from Jim Molinari.

    "I think South Dakota State is the favorite to win the tournament," Molinari said. "They play it at home, they have four or five seniors, they're well-coached, they have a heck of a team and it's going to take a heck of a team to beat them."

    "The Summit League is coming, so we have to keep it going," he said. "Omaha is getting a new arena, IUPUI is getting a new arena, North Dakota State is getting a new practice arena, South Dakota is getting a new arena. Right now, I think the Summit League can compete with The (Missouri) Valley with the exception of Wichita State and Indiana State."

    "South Dakota State beat Belmont by 20 and they're (Belmont) going to win the Ohio Valley. We've added Denver and Oral Roberts, our league is going to be a monster."

    This is more meaningful coming from a guy who has coached at DePaul, Northern Illinois, Bradley, Minnesota, and Ball State.

    This league could be really, really exciting in the coming seasons if Douple can hold it all together and add that 10 team to the league.

    Man, I just get all giddy thinking how great the Summit League tourney will be next year in the 12,000 seat events center. Going to be insane.

    Last year they went on sale during the tournament. I assume it will be the same this year.

    I would guess there will be high initial demand as fans like myself are tired of sitting in the nosebleeds and will be itching for a chance at lower level seating.

    It would be AMAZING to sell out a session or two the first year in the place. It could happen, but would require a perfect storm involving SDSU/USD/NDSU and maybe Omaha.

    I saw you last year. You weren't in the nosebleeds!

    I am fearful that the lower level seating will be eaten up by corporate sponsorships - even more so than the current Summit Tourney at the Arena.

    It might take more frogskins to get the same seats this next year. We will need to make payments on the extra seats.
