  • Arch Madness 2018

    Has anyone heard if ticket sales have been good, so far? Hopefully most people decided on going while the season was still going well.

    Regardless of what the next 13 games turn out to be, the Valley tournament is always an awesome weekend.

    I sure hope they have a commercial about Arch Madness once or twice (or a thousand times) during the broadcasts this season.

      can't be any worse than those "college football playoffs" ads that espn tortured everyone with all year.

          It is like watching anything on WatchESPN. Same stupid ads over and over, sometimes twice in a row.

          As for Arch Madness, I think they run that ad once for every ticket they sell!

            I think my wife and I are going down and we may roll the dice and take our 2 year old. Any idea if 2 year olds need tickets to get in? I'm having trouble trying finding any information regarding it online.

              Have had a flight booked for months...unsure about tickets since our seeding and scheduling situation is still unclear. At the very least STL is an amazing town that I have missed dearly since the SO moved back to Iowa.

                At this point, the 7/10 game would be a small victory for not having to face LUC on Friday, if we can make something happen Thursday night.

                  Has any Thursday team won the mvc tournament?

                    A Thursday team has only won on Friday ONCE in 28 years. That Bradley team then lost by 40 in the semifinals.

                    This ain't low major ball. Nobody is winning 4 in 4 days.

                      The first 3-5 years were 8 team events. They went to the current format somewhere around 95-96. in the early 90's we had multiple teams miss the tournament.

                        You are correct. 94-95 was the first year of the current format. So once in 22 years has a Opening Round team won a second game.

                        Used to be a Friday-Monday format as well. CBS coming in and making it Thursday-Sunday is the best thing that ever happened to that tournament.

                          I remember back in 2004 watching the overtime win (maybe even double overtime?) against Missouri State on the aforementioned Monday night to make it into the NCAA tournament for the first time in, well, what felt like forever. That was Mac's 1st NCAA tournament team; we were a #14 seed against Georgia Tech in Milwaukee in the 1st round and gave them a hell of a game, pretty cool considering that they were the national runner-up that season. That game had special significance to me since I was just a couple of days away from moving from Iowa to the Florida Keys for a career opportunity, so it was really neat for me to be able to end my time in Iowa being able to watch a game with such importance as that.

                          Good times....

                          Too bad this year's team appears to be completely incapable at this point of winning a game in the MVC regular season.

                              It'll be blacked out on ESPN3.
