Should you be allowed to play NCAA Tourney games on your home court?

Kind of a random thought, but between the playing Cal in San Jose thing and people bringing up locations in the "lucky/unlucky" post, it's slightly relevant. The tournament is set up to try and get games closer to home for the higher seeds. Last time the Dome hosted a regional we had a 1 seed and had to be shipped out to Salt Lake City because of it. Meanwhile, Nova can play less "neutral site" games in the WhateverbankPhillysarenaisnamedfornow Arena and play there in the NCAA Tournament, just a few miles from campus. Louisville and Kentucky can play in each other's arena less than an hour away and you don't see a single non-red or blue speck outside of the family/donors sections. Indiana would have been playing in Indianapolis this year if not for Louisville (also only about an hour away). Michigan State played us in Auburn Hills in 2000. What's the huge difference between a Louisville/Colorado State game at Rupp and one at the Yum Center?

A similar thing as 2010 will happen if we have a high seed when we host again in 2015. That same year, Ohio State could draw Columbus and Cleveland, both of which would be as overwhelmingly pro-Buckeyes as the Dome would be pro-Orange. So long as you keep ticket allotments standard, what's the point in letting teams play across town, but not in their own arena?
