Think I found the relevant criteria on the NCAA site at this link:

Site selection is on p. 18, this looks to be the critical passage:
When determining host institutions for playoff games when both teams are unseeded, criteria shall apply as follows:
(1) quality of facility, (2) revenue potential plus estimated net receipts, (3) attendance history and potential, (4) teamís performance (i.e., conference place finish, head-to-head results and number of Division I opponents), and (5) student-athlete well-being (e.g., travel and missed class time).

Also note the NCAA covers travel expense for all playoff teams so that's not an issue. Given Sam's facilty, revenue potential & attendance advantages we would be writing a big check to get the game to Hammy to be played in front of our 60 fans...

Gate'83, thanks for the link. Clearly, there was a lot of room for politics in the selection of SHSU for the game. it looks like the only way Colgate will ever get a home game is if they are ranked in the top 4 of the playoff teams (think they were ranked 4 in 2003). For future reference knowing the financial guarantees of $30,000 for the first round, $40,000 for the second, $50,000 for the quarter and $60,000 for the semi is handy. I also noticed that for the prelims the NCAA pays for travel of 130 people including only 60 athletes (outside of coaches, trainers, equipment folks, some pub. relations staff and the AD,who the heck makes up the other 70). For the final they pay for 145 including 70 athletes. There is always politics in everything the NCAA does and it is to the disadvantage of smaller schools. BTW, I don't think the CAA deserves 4 spots in the tourney.
