This.  I'm taking the family to the game tonight but probably won't cough up the money for the game Saturday.  They really should break up the Saturday session into 2.  I really can't see paying $100/ticket for nose bleed seats.

Just picked up two lower bowl seats for $50 each. $85 face value. Section 118 Row M.

Cheapest I'm seeing on ticket services for tomorrow is $86 (>$100 with fees) for upper level.

If we make it to the Sweet 16, it is close (in Memphis).

Of course, that likely means beating UNC.

Why would the committee reward two 8 seeds?

If we had been sent to Tulsa, I'd be there. I've got too much going on to be far away in SC. Enjoy, jet setters!

I'm pretty sure they try to give home court advantage to the 1 seeds; not the 8 seeds. Why on earth would they potentially be giving Kansas a default road game in round 2?

Greenville would be worth the trip if there were no tournament. Gorgeous downtown by the river with all the great restaurants and craft beer establishments. Plus, don't miss Furman--one of the most beautiful small college campuses anywhere, thanks to a lot of wealthy alums. Lots of stuff in bloom still, even with the very early spring.

It's baffling to me, too.  But, they're looking down the barrel at Duke in the 2nd round, so that should be that for the Gamecocks, assuming they beat Marquette.

KU wouldn't have faced as many Hog fans as you think they would have. KU already has about 80% of the Tulsa tickets. KU fans travel like Kentucky fans.

where can I get best tickets prices?

Two years ago in Jacksonville, tickets to Ark-UNC were plentiful from scalpers outside.  I bought on Stubhub for $70, but ended up buying a ticket that was center court about 10 rows up for $75.  The scalper I bought it form said they were "boss man" seats which was very much true.  I ended up selling the original back to a scalper for $20.  I doubt you'll get that kind of deal with the close proximity to Carolina, but my experience is the scalper option is usually better than the ticket sites.

1st SEC Tourney Experience
« Reply #18735 on: March 14, 2017, 07:54:55 am »

So went to Friday and Sunday games.  Friday was awesome.  Saw the Florida/Vandy game and then our game.  Lots of fans from all schools but mainly Kentucky of corse.  My husband did not want to go to championship game (he has been before).  Said it's ALL blue and awful.  Home game for Kentucky.  Well, he was right about  the all blue, home game part.  I will have to say the Kentucky fans that we talked to, sat by were really nice.   I was surprised.  Outside the stadium, before the game, several Kentucky fans, and local people stopped us to say, you have guts for being here in the midst of all the blue.  I could not believe how few Hog fans were there (maybe 1000-1500 tops). Anyway, it was a great experience, proud we made the final.  Cannot stand Monk (even though he is a kid), glad he is one and done.  Hopefully we can advance in NCAA tourney and sick of the committee giving us NC!!!!

Proposed tram from LSU to downtown Baton Rouge could be moving forward
« Reply #18746 on: April 17, 2017, 12:31:03 pm »

https://twitter.com/aegallo/status/854002577767354368

Quote
Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome's administration has signified interest in supporting the proposed tram to link downtown with LSU, with the new mayor saying she hopes the potential success in securing money for the tram could lead to more federal dollars for transit projects elsewhere in the parish.

Broome said on the campaign trail that she supported a variety of transit options to answer Baton Rouge's traffic woes, but she did not take an outright position as a cheerleader or detractor for the tram...

Her administration is now asking the Metro Council to authorize $500,000 for HNTB Corporation to continue planning for the tram before submitting an application in September for federal money to help pay for the $170 million streetcar. The project has split lawmakers over whether to support investing so much money into one part of the city. Some argue it is a smart move, while others in north Baton Rouge and southeast Baton Rouge have complained that there is insufficient investment in transit in their neighborhoods.

Who has made the trip to Baton Rouge?
« Reply #18749 on: May 22, 2017, 06:44:15 pm »

Thinking of making the Baton Rouge trip with my gang of wild bandits this year. We made the trip to TCU last year, Ole Miss 2 years ago, yadda yadda. Needless to say, we've seen some pretty memorable Razorback road games the last few years, but we're thinking of making our marquee game this year to Baton Rouge and staying Wednesday and Thursday night in NOLA. We've got a buddy to stay with in BR, but as far as actual gameday experience goes I've heard BR can be an intense and trying time for road travelers. I was hoping to get some reaction from some of y'all that have made the trip, your thoughts and feedback on the people, tailgating, and gameday experience as a whole.

Thanks in advance y'all!  :razorback:
