How about this idea to open the Sprint Center in KC, schedule a triple header of college hoops. Have MU, KU and K-State play big-time opponents. I know the NABC is going to be located in the Sprint Center right along with the Hall of Fame right?

How does KU-Carolina, MU-Arkansas and K-State-Wichita State sound? Doubt Roy would agree to it, but if KU and Carolina won't play, how about UCLA or Kentucky? I like MU-Arkansas there if they'll both agree to it. K-State-Cincy would be fun to watch with Huggy involved with both schools. K-State vs Iowa would also be a fun game to watch since there are a lot of Iowa fans living in KC.

Isn't the 50th anniversary of arguable the greatest college game ever played coming up? Anyone remember the 3OT National Championship game between KU & UNC? Mizzou & Arkansas would be a natural matchup too.

I really think this would be a fantastic thing to do. What do you all think?

Any of you that have any friends in high places, think we could get it to fly?

No. That would take away home games from both KU & K-State, since they will be participating in a couple pre-season tourneys each year. Not sure on MU.

Although Mizzou vs Arkansas in KC would be a great matchup. 18,000 people in the arena, 5 last names, and 10 full sets of teeth.

I wish there was a way to have KU play Mizzou at the Sprint Center, but without sacraficing the campus games as well.

Maybe a 3rd game during Non-Conference?

Yep, It's all about the money. Teams aren't going to sacrifice home games for a feel good tourney. :shake:
