Big Ten's Delany wants MSG for basketball tourney
at least 20% of the time during championship week. Says he has already presented MSG with a powerful promotional plan as to how it could happen.

As the article says though, "Good Luck with that".

https://www.app.com/story/sports/college...602483002/

“We’ve presented them with a powerful, promotional plan that we think, along with the other conferences, if you can elevate Madison Square Garden, we think we can elevate it to the next level with regard to college basketball postseason competition."

Cheers,
Neil

Elevate them from the best to the best? But only once every 3 years because the B1G won't play there every year.

Sounds like the same deal the ACC offered MSG before the BE signed it's long term deal. I expect the B1G to have even less luck that the ACC had because at least when the ACC offered, MSG wasn't under contract to the BE.

MSG doesn't need elevating.

The ACC is in a far better position than the B1G to get its tournament in MSG and we haven’t been able to so far.

MSG is in the driver's seat with three of the Top 5 or 6 basketball conferences wanting access.

I could see them opening up the arena to the highest bidder in 2 year blocks.

Yeah, and I want a 4-bedroom house in the city with a big yard and only pay $600/month.

Dream on.

RE: Big Ten's Delany wants MSG for basketball tourney
Delany is clueless about The Big Ten’s lack of basketball appeal, especially in the Northeast. Their basketball flagship, Indiana, has been taking on water for a decade or more now. Michigan and Michigan State have tried to pickup the slack but are failing badly. It’s been nearly two decades since The Big Ten won an NCAA championship. Bad idea Jimmy..... your basketball sucks.

The ACC of today falls well short of ever being able to replace Syracuse vs just about anyone else in The Big East Championship on Saturday in The Garden. If The ACC can’t do with its basketball pedigree, The Big Ten doesn’t stand a chance.

Know your place Jimmy. Stay in Chicago.

Appreciate the Syracuse love but until we start playing well enough to get out of the second round, it's immaterial where the tourney is played.

But I think you sell the ACC short, at least in terms of the semi-finals and final rounds. The two years the tourney was held in Barclays those rounds exceeded the arena's capacity.

The second round and quarters were supposedly capacity but they definitely were not full in either year, but mostly full. It takes time. The new Big East did okay attendance its first three years at MSG, but have improved over the past two years, though still not filling it up to capacity except for the semis and the final rounds.

Cheers,
Neil

I'm surprised by the attendance numbers. The B1G averaged 15,200?

The BE averaged 18,790?? That means the Wednesday play-in games and Thursday first round had to be at near capacity.

It's true. Although I cut the B1G some slack because it was taking place a week before championship week. Their truly pathetic turnout was at the Verizon Center the year previously where they didn't even bother to give the session average of the first day but for the remaining days managed to only average 13,240 per session. The ACC in 2016 averaged 17,600 per session including the bad first day session, but without that they averaged 19,550 per session.

Meanwhile, the Big East has grown into great attendance for MSG. Here is the average per session over the past 5 years of the new Big East's existence:

2014 - 14,556
2015 - 13,939
2016 - 15,644
2017 - 17,556
2018 - 18,790

It did take them a little bit of time to build to where they are now.

Neil

Wow, those attendance numbers are truly impressive for the BE. I never thought that they could grow to those numbers without the fb schools but Im glad that they did. Again, truly impressive. Outside of Acc teams, I still enjoy watching several BE teams.

Hail cuseroc!

Outside of the Orange, my next favorite college bb team is Nova. I try and watch every game of theirs that I can. Love Jay Wright as a coach.

I'll watch the Hoyas against a name program but mostly to root against them.

That's about it for me in the Big East, except for the Cincy-Xavier game and the Marquette-Wisconsin game.

Neil

Delaney is a SIGNIFICANTLY better negotiator than Swofford. The proof is in the pudding. I would not be surprised if MSG makes a deal. It would not be th3 first time Swofford is beaten to the punch.

How will he be beaten to the punch?

Delany mentioned NYC for 20% of the time. They already played there and it was not well received. Maybe Swofford figured out something Delany had to learn the hard way.

Well let's just say Delany inherited the better poker hand to begin with and has the more malleable presidents. Delany's more futuristic thinking is a plus though.

More likely, the B1G will just buy their way in - pay the Big East to give up the arena once every five years. The Big East could make some money and use it as an opportunity to rotate to some other locations, starting with Chicago.

Not sure what regular season attendance has to do with this thread. The B1G has the largest average attendance as a conference by far but those home attendances didn't help them when they played their tourney in DC or NYC. 03-wink
