The IHSA Class 1-4 A State Boys Basketball Tournaments are going back to Champaign for the first time since 1995. What are everyone's thoughts.

After reading the damaging article in Tribune, blaming Caterpillar for leaving Peoria after committing to downtown renovations they bailed it was a foregone conclusion. But sometimes change is for the better. The Civic Center is nearly 40 years old needs a new look, with money no one has.
go cubs go!

After reading the Tribune article, I thought the change was pretty likely. We'll see if the change in venue helps attendance. Though it will be hard to make comparisons next year, since the format makes the radical change to one weekend instead of two. I really think we're at a point where if we can keep attendance from falling more it has, that will be a success. With four classes, interest will never come back to what it used to be.
And that's assuming there is a season next winter and spectators are allowed to watch.
