    NCAA's

    I'm thinking of going to the tourney this year, and have never been there before. Should I get tickets at the door for Friday's sessions? Or should I shell out for an All session pass?

    I don't plan to go to opening day, but for Friday (maybe Sat) only. Anyone been there before that has some advice? Should I get session passes at the door, or an all session pass and not make it to all of them?

    Re: NCAA's

    Completely depends on the venue. If you are at the Ford Center and OU is in the regional... you better guarantee that you will get in the door. If you are in the Metrodome or some other ginormous converted football stadium.... completely different story.

    I'm talking wrestling, not MBB. It's all in Omaha.

    Get an all session pass, you won't regret watching those top matches.

    Re: NCAA's

    The Wrestling NCAA's are Sold as (6) "Session" tickets: Thur - Sat, Morning & Night.

    There should be plenty of "extra" tickets available to scalp for Friday (both sessions) and Saturday morning, you should get at Face Value. The Saturday night session - Championships will be tougher to get, but still possible.

    The CWC (Cyclone Wrestling Club) always buys a block of tickets, it would be fun to sit with them.

    This. My dad goes every year with some friends. There are still some great matches to watch when ISU doesn't wrestle.

    Re: NCAA's

    Alright, I have a secondary question now. I'm definitely going (too much for the bowl game), so I"m wondering on an recommendations for places to stay for this tourney that week. Any suggestions?

    Follow-up: Is it normal to not be able to find All-Session passes at all in December?

    It says they're selling all session passes already, but whenever I do a search for them, no matter the quantity (was looking for 3), it says they can't find any.

    I hope that they are not sold out, because an old wrestling friend and I were thinking about going.

    Tickets went on sale last March during the 09 Championships. My guess is that they are sold out.

    Anyone know where I can pick up a couple of tickets, besides stub hub and the like?
