    Heading down to Durham

    Bought my tickets this morning and am heading out Thursday night. About 15 hrs to get there. Any local cyclone gatherings in Durham? And any cyclones down there have a good sugestion of where to stay close to Duke? Hope to see lots of fans there. Go Twister sisters.

    Glad you're going and like your effort, take all your friends. Yell loudly. Your thread title sounds like a good blues song.

    Re: Heading down to Durham

    I just moved away from Durham. If you can afford it, stay at the Washington Duke Inn. If you want to go cheap but decent, go with the La Quinta on 15/501 (aka Durham Chapel Hill Blvd).

    Durham isn't the greatest town, but a game in Cameron is worth the trip. Make sure to hit up The Q Shack for some BBQ (get the Carolina style pulled pork and use the vinegar sauce). Head to Main St if you want to hit up a bar (The Federal or James Joyce were my faves....but aren't anything amazing). Also, getting over to Chapel Hill is a very good time and a much better college town. Anything on Franklin is good.

    I can't go to the game Saturday but when we win and play Duke on Monday I plan to fly down from New York to watch us get to the Sweet 16 for the third year in a row....

    Cyclone fans attending the opening round of the NCAA Championships are invited to the hotel lobby of the Hilton Durham at 9 a.m. on Saturday, March 19. The Iowa State pep band, spirit squad and Cy will be on hand to wish the team good luck before they head to Cameron Indoor Stadium to take on Marist at 11 a.m. ET.
    Sounds like a good time; unless you're a clueless business traveler who just happens to walk through the hotel lobby at 0900.

    There's a certain other Brooklynite: Player Bio: Maria Laterza - MARIST OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE that will try to help you avoid the cost of that plane ticket.
