Why Can’t Detroit Win Bids For Big Sporting Events?

Published

As the NCAA bypassed Detroit last week in announcing future Final Four sites, the old doubts and inferiority complexes could have crept in.

Instead of wallowing, let’s see why Detroit keeps getting passed up for big sporting events after a mix of great events in the middle of last decade.

What are the next ones that could come?

We also talk to Jon Steinbrecher of the MAC about what the commissioner enjoys about their partnership with Detroit and what the future holds.

Chris Manning of Locked On Cavaliers also lays out the Kevin Love extension for the Cavaliers, and Locked On Pistons host Matt Schoch talks about how it relates to the Blake Griffin deal and who is in better position to make the playoffs out of Detroit and Cleveland.

A Royal Oak, Mich. native, Matt Schoch has been following Detroit sports since learning to read by using Tigers box scores in the Free Press. Schoch is a Central Michigan graduate who has covered the Olympics in Brazil, playoff basketball at MJ's house in Chicago and cricket matches in the Caribbean. After working for newspapers in Port Huron, Mich., Springfield, Mo., and St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Schoch is now the host of Locked On Pistons podcast.
