    Decided to head down from DSM tomorrow afternoon. First timer. Where should I go to get a ticket? Right in front of Sprint Center? Any concerns or things to watch out for? Any parking recommendations?

    As someone else said the whole place is likely to be a huge party and worst case we're watching in the P&L somewhere with other Cyclones.

    I'm curious too. Tempted to drive from Cedar Rapids but concerned about logistics.

    No worries. It is safe and clean. We exited on 11th Street at 4:30 on Friday and there was very little downtown traffic even on a Friday. We took $20 parking a block north of the Sprint Center. Cheaper parking is just a few blocks west and northwest.

    Most of the tickets are just west of the stadium. Scalping is legal so there are tons of guys with permits. If you just stand there, someone will offer you tickets. I would recommend staying close to the entrance. Most of the hard core scalpers stay near the middle of all the tents and activities. Local KU fans who didn't bring their tickets Friday may give you a better deal.

    PS It is a great environment just west of the stadium. It has a wonderful bowl feel to it. Feels much like Beale Street in Memphis. Cyclones everywhere.
