Indianapolis and New Orleans are among 10 cities that submitted bids Wednesday to host the 2012-16 men's Final Fours.

In the running again are San Antonio, which hosted this year's final won by Kansas; Detroit, the 2009 host; Houston (2011); and Indianapolis (2010), which has held more Final Fours than any other city -- five.

Phoenix is the only city looking to hold its first Final Four. Atlanta, Minneapolis, St. Louis and Arlington-Dallas-Fort Worth are the other prospective hosts.

Finalists will be announced in August and the five winning cities will be revealed in November.

All cities that have or will have domes.

Chicago, NYC, L.A., San Jose...some of the biggest cities in the country, and all stand a good chance of never hosting a final 4 because of the kinds of stadiums they have.

Add Seattle to that list, too.

It seems to be an NCAA mantra that never again will a West Coast city host a final four. They have set an increasingly high stadium capacity requirement which effectively excludes West Coast cities. West Coast coaches and others in sports management have been very quiet about this flagrant bias.
