NCAA Tourney.........

How many people from here plan to make the trip?
Need to know whether to buy a keg for tailgaiting or a couple of 30 packs.

Depends on where we go. If we go to Nashville then I am definently there. After that probably hard for me to go.

I plan on going if we’re in Charlotte, Nashville or Cleveland. A road trip to either Nash. or Clev. wouldn’t be that bad actually. My gut tells me that we won’t end up in Charlotte.

I’ll be going, regardless of location. And I get a per diem for it. Thanks, pep band!

Depending on where we get placed, we’re hoping to make the trip. This time it will be a little more organized than our Greenville trip though!!

Depending on the location I hope to make it as well.

I think we will be in Charlotte if we are a four seed. With the pod system I think we will be out West but playing at home for the first two rounds. Committees way of making it a little easier to send a team out west.

That's the ONLY way (outside of falling to the 8/9 game which won't happen). Getting the 4 isn't a long shot actually but I think we have a hiccup before the end of the C-USA Tournament (possibly Thursday but hope not). I feel like we'll be a 5 seed and playing out in Tucson or Indianapolis.

I will be there if we play in Nashville, Cleveland or Indy.

My guess…
#4 or #5 seed playing in Nashville.
I will be there!!
I guess I will go with 4/ 30 packs then…

As long as it’s a driveable distance from Charlotte, the wife and I plan on going.

I dont give a damn what the weather is like outside, my buddies and i will be out in the parking lot drinking with our Charlotte gear on.

Let’s just all chip in and charter a bus. :slight_smile:

Maybe. Depends: where; tix available. If far, no. If no tix, no go.
When we played in Greenville, SC I was elated, but the scramble for tix was a nightmare and I am a looooooong standing 49’er Club member and season ticket holder. I finally got tix from a small batch that was returned by the So Co for general sale and our tic office picked them up where I got 2 at about 4:30 the day before the game with ND. It was nerve wracking simply because I can’t be one of the top tier giver$ in the 49’er Club. But I am at EVERY game and have been for 30 years and pay what I could over the years. I will deal with it. :smiley:
