That 'interview' is embarrassing. They should take it down as it says absolutely nothing other than question the competence of League office.

I had to read it after those reviews. I think IBM's Watson would have outperformed.

I can't imagine given the size of the venue that there will be any general sale until all the schools involved have a chance for their allocation

Yes, from what I read, they are only reserving 100 tickets per school.

"Tuesday, Dec. 11 – Presale tickets to past Ivy Madness ticket holders".

So all the Penn fans who enjoyed the Palestra for the last two years have a 3-day jump on the seats in New Haven. That makes a lot of sense.

Idiotic.

So, if Brown makes the tournament they get an allotment of 100 tickets, but if this sells out before Friday that's all they get? What about Princeton? Their fans bought two years ago, but likely not much last year. What if someone did buy last year but sold? What if you bought on Stubhub?

Not only is the Tournament a bad idea for this league, but the execution has been amateurish. HCA debacle. Location in southernmost outlier location. And now this - legacy preference for tickets!?!? I bought tickets the past two years so I'm good, but I'm offended at how unfair this is.

It reminds me of when my local little league grew too quickly and so the parents in charge decided that new signups who had older siblings or parents involved could sign up, but real newcomers could not.

Transparent unfairness.

Why don't they separate semifinal games and sell for two different events? Then, for the final - like last year - teams eliminated lose their finals allotment.
