    Re: Big 12 tournament hotels

    We stayed at the Sheraton last year and it was great! It was one of the official Big 12 tournament official hotels so it was all decked out with Big 12 stuff which was pretty cool. I know a lot of ISU fans also stay at The Westin. I hope we take over KC this year. The way our season is going it wouldn't surprise me!

    My advice is book now. We stayed at the Q last year and wanted to stay there again, but it's booked. We are at the Crowne Plaza, more than I wanted to spend but the location is perfect.

    I'm having second thoughts after seeing those prices.

    Yeah, I didn't mean it like that, more so if ISU was playing early Thursday or if people buy all session and watch Wed night's games: (Tech, WV, TCU type of teams).

    Going down Thursday. If we play early will be no different from last year. I don't see us finishing seventh or worse

    I've never bought the all session tickets before but am going to this year based on the obscene prices they were asking for the KU game last year.

    That was awful, the prices were through the roof. One ticket for ISU, KU, KSU, OSU fans = tons of profit for scalpers.

    I sold a ticket (to an ISU fan of course) for $150 for ISU-KU last year in the upper decks and he was happy to pay it. I ended up selling the KU-KSU championship tickets for $125 I think.

    Re: Big 12 tournament hotels

    Can't remember where We stayed two years ago. Trying to get a group of 10 or so guys to go down this year as well.

    We stay Friday-Sunday. It backfired two years ago when we lost to UT in the 2nd round. Even with ISU losing it was an absolute blast. Not a lot of ISU fans with us losing but you can't beat the power and light district during the tourney. I can't even imagine all the cardinal and gold down there if we were to make the championship.

    Re: Big 12 tournament hotels

    My friends knows a guy in the hotel business in dsm and was able to get us a deal on a hotel.

    Two rooms at the Sheraton in KC. $147/night. 4 people to a room so we are splitting it for $37 a night.

    Re: Big 12 tournament hotels

    I've never been before but booked Embassy Suites at the Plaza. What is the best way to get tickets? I would probably get the all session pass.
