Could do it where city has cool arena next to Big Stadium

And stagger the dates. So, Smoothie King could be an exciting place for women's FF, say Wed semis, Friday finals, and Men's Final 4 could be at that smoking new (sorry) Caesar's Sports Book/Mercedes Sports Superdome in New Orleans. NCAA could throw a big party and have not enough hotel rooms just on Friday....The city would rejoice being booked for a solid 1.5 weeks outside of JazzFest and FQF, fro example. The Men's FF crowd could come in Sat, leave Tues.

Places like NY (Giants, MSG/Nets) LA (Staples, SoFi) Indy (football joint, hoop joints) could work. Etc. I"m sure there is plenty of logistics w/ full week of coaches/meetings/etc where the overlap needs a larger city.

I'd say it's equal cuz it right sizes the crowds for both events.not create a cavern if they can't draw 50+ for women's. Before someone blames the poster for sexism, keep in mind I think the Men's FF should be in arenas! WFF/MFF week long basketball celebration isn't the worst idea....
