We talked about tickets and such with Nathan Dennison on Hoopsville Thursday. Plenty of good info in our chat: www.d3hoops.com/hoopsville/archives/2019/mar7

And fees online for tickets are basically SOP. Salem has them as well since they use TicketMaster.

Head's up ... there is a six-dollar per-day fee for parking in Fort Wayne. Again, in the podcast it is mentioned.

And where you sit is being done a little differently this year. Basically, throw out what you remember in Salem ... it may not be the same this time around. Dennison's interview touches on it.

Thanks for the info D-Mac! I'm making plans now.

Two years ago, Ohio Dominican hosted the DII women's national championships.  I was thinking of going to see the eventual champion, Ashland University, play.  However, ODU's online tournament ticket website forced prospective purchasers to set up an account (name, address, phone, credit card info) BEFORE revealing the setup and prices of the tickets!  I considered this to be ridiculous and stayed away.  I guess others did not, as they are hosting again this year.

It's killing me that I can't get to Fort Wayne this weekend. Out of town. Do we have any idea yet when CBS network will be broadcasting?   Or do I have to set the DVR to basically tape the entire 2 days?  Maybe even Sunday?

I was thinking of coming up with a place and time to meet up with fellow posters. A late night meal after the 2nd game on Friday or a lunch time meet before the All-Star game on Saturday...

 Good thought, Greek, but I'll be in Salem for the women's Final 4; maybe next year when the Scranton men may return to the Final 4.  ;)

From what I have seen from the TV listings, CBS Sports Network will show the men's DIII basketball title game on tape delay at approx 11 PM Eastern on Saturday March 16.  CBS Sports Network has obligations to do live broadcasts of the Conference USA women's and men's title games on Saturday evening -- these games wil be playing at the same time as the DIII men's championship game.

It is unclear at this time whether a live video stream will be on ncaa.com Saturday at 7 PM Eastern.

A little fun fact... this year's host institution is Manchester. The last time the title wasn't decided in Salem was back in 1995 when UW-Platteville won the title over... Manchester 69-55.
Some names people outside the D3 world may have heard of were on the sidelines with Bo Ryan coaching Platteville and Steve Alford coaching Manchester. According to Wikipedia on Alford's page... "The loss to Bo Ryan's University of Wisconsin-Platteville team marked the only title game in NCAA history matching two undefeated squads." which if true is quite interesting.

It's true. The '95 title matchup was the only unbeaten-vs.-unbeaten national championship game in D3 history.

That would be cool. some ideas....There is an Italian place right across the street. Casa Ristorante. However...per the Fort Wayne page, that is the gathering spot for CNU faithful. There is a Ruby Tuesday across the street (but everyone has one of those).  Or...8/10 mile away is Granite City Food and Brewery.

What's this page you talk of? Is there an unofficial place for all the teams?

Per broadcasts ... CBS will show the championship on tape-delay, however ... there is still an obligation that the title game be shown LIVE online. As noted a few times on Hoopsville (to steal Greek's comment: come on, people!) ... who is doing that is still up in the air best I can tell. One option is that CBS will show their production, live, online and then show it again on TV on tape delay (and most likely delayed past 11pm to be honest). The other option is that NCAA.com (Tupelo-Raycom) will show the title game, live, online (featuring Brendan Gulick and myself who will be doing the semifinals and All-Star Game as well).

Either way ... the title game will be shown live ... online

Not to mention, they have a Tim Horton's coffee in the coliseum. Blech!

The idea of a parking lot and an upgraded lot is a little crazy.

Parking might get a little crazy as they have some... let's say, inconvenient scheduling. Apparently they have a Monster Truck Jam at the same time. Too bad, I would've loved to take my kid there and then the championship game.
