COMPARE & CONTRAST: In Dallas, Jeff Mosier noted Arlington in hosting Super Bowl XLV and the Final Four are "similar enough to provide organizers valuable lessons" for next month’s event, as many logistics "remain the same." From "mass coordination among public safety agencies to understanding the best way to get fans inside AT&T Stadium, North Texas officials remember what worked and what didn’t" in '11. Populous, which coordinates Final Four logistics, was "already aware of the spread-out nature of North Texas." Populous Event Manager & Associate Principal Marc Klein said that after helping manage Super Bowl XLV, they "have a real world understanding of how long it takes to travel the 18 miles from downtown Dallas to AT&T Stadium in Arlington and the logistics of navigating around the stadium" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/23).
