    Anyone else plan on going to the NCAA tournament?

    Is anyone else planning on going to whatever site we are sent to, regardless of location?

    I am. I am hoping for Portland, Albuquerque, or Omaha just due to travel logistics from Colorado, but I'm prepared to fly out to Pittsburgh, Greensboro, etc. if need be. I definitely plan on going. I have some discretionary income I can use for airfare, tickets, etc, and I have the schedule (long weekends starting on Thursday) to give me the flexibility to do it as well.

    So, if anyone is planning on doing the same would anyone be interested in sharing/splitting a hotel room? I'm pretty clean and polite and am a good roommate. My dad might be going as well, depending on location, but I would be up for staying with some fellow Cyclone Fanatics and cheering for the team if anyone is interested.

    Respond to this post or you can pm me as well.

    Re: Anyone else plan on going to the NCAA tournament?

    This isnt new news, but it is kind of weird when looking at the map of the locations how most of them are bunched in a small area this year.

    Re: Anyone else plan on going to the NCAA tournament?

    I'd be interested depending on where it is. Greensboro, Albuquerque, and Portland are the only ones that I would really have to look hard at. I'm a student however.

    If it's Omaha, I am there. Otherwise, probably not.

    Yep, just hoping we avoid those, all the other sites are not too bad a drive in one day.

    Re: Anyone else plan on going to the NCAA tournament?

    I've got a car full of students heading to any location except Albuquerque, Portland, or Greensboro. I'll be p*$$** if we get put at one of those three.


    Don't hit at all if it is honorably possible to avoid hitting; but never hit soft.

    If I can find a friend or two willing to fly with me (or drive if close enough) I'll be there.

    Re: Anyone else plan on going to the NCAA tournament?

    I have friends that go to Dayton (Dayton play in game) Ohio State (Columbus), Cincinatti (Louisville), My house is less than 2 hours from Pittsburgh, Omaha is close, A sister that lives outside of Nashville. So Greensboro, Albuquerque, and Portland are the only tough ones where I would need a hotel. So chances are I am going!

    Re: Anyone else plan on going to the NCAA tournament?

    I am selfishly rooting for Portland... but prepared to go other places, as I will be in Cleveland for the first few days of the week for work.

    Pittsburgh would be a nice and easy trip from Cleveland! So would Columbus

    I would love to go see them in Omaha, but the tickets themselves have to be expensive right.

    Re: Anyone else plan on going to the NCAA tournament?

    I don't think Omaha is happening for us unless we get a higher seed than Kansas or Mizpoo because we're not allowed to play our conference in the second round if there's a way around it


    I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned

    Tickets probably around $100/session (you can look it up on the NCAA Championships site) but with the size of the arenas, I'm guessing you can get a decent discount buying them outside, especially if you are going to a session taking place during the day.

    Hoping for Omaha.
