    I like how it said "starting in 2013"- could be annual tradition! Sweet.

    I hope they play this somewhere on the strip, not over at UNLV.

    If/when this happens we need to get organized and have a allbuffs party. Maybe we can all stay at the same hotel or at least the same section on the strip.

    I'm guessing the CU AD will think twice about paying the way for 50 students to enjoy an all-expense trip to Vegas.

    this will be pretty tough for me to go to. I do an annual trip for St Patty's Day every year and it will be tough to swing trips on back to back weeks.

    Hmm, so MWC is at UNLV, and the WAC is at the New Orleans.... The only arena left open would be the one at MGM Grand, right?

    From the whispers I have heard, yes. The MGM grand will most likely be hosting the Pac-12 Tournament. At least until some chinese company finished building their new basketball arena on the south end of Vegas.

    The nice thing about going to Vegas is that there really isn't an off-season for Las Vegas. Hotels and airfare are pretty much always reasonable.

    FIFY, the WCC tournament is at the Orleans, aka St. Mary's plays Gonzaga every year with a special guest participant every 4 years.

    Also the WCC tournament is the week before ours so the Orleans would still be eligible.

    PAC at the MGM would be the best thing ever. And don't dare try to move it off the stip - that won't work right. We need to be able to gamble between the games.

    According to my buddies who live in Vegas, the Orleans is a ****hole. MGM is the way to go.

    Yep, the day they move this off the strip is the day no one shows up.

    The basketball arena I mentioned is part of this proposed complex.
    http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2011/feb/08/proposal-emerges-build-three-stadium-complex-downt/

    I know the article is over a year old, however they just secured a chinese investor that would pay for the basketball arena. This complex could make for some interesting changes in the professional sporting realm. I can guarantee that Vegas would lobby hard to get the super bowl played there often, and the world series to be played there, or the all star game. It will be interesting to see if this project ever gets off the ground.

    Edit: Actually the basketball arena "Silver State Arena" has been cleared for construction around middle of 2012 and will be finished in 2014
