Sacramento Bee article on its bid to be the semi-permanent site. Seems like it has a shot. Attendance figures thus far, based on newspaper reports:
Day 1- 5,500e
Day 2 - 7,100e
Day 3 - 8,900e
Sacramento is unique, but when was the last time NCAAs had these crowds? Not even Eugene '01 matched it. I'd rather see it in Sacramento than in Los Angeles metro. The meet would get lost in Tinseltown, way too much stuff to do there. Eugene could work, except its weather is the iffiest of the bunch & flight connections suck.
