I can say with good certainty that I would go to the game if it was in Orlando, no matter who was playing. I'd pick TampaJag up on the way...

There would be at least two of us there.

I know I wouldn't make it there. You should see me whine about the traffic HERE. We deal with cars/sp. mile and you guys would have to measure it sq.. footage. My brother married a girl from N. Jersey/Philly area and when we're on the road for hours at a time @ 80-90 mph she marvels at the open nature of the affair while telling turnpike horror stories. :lol:

But isn't that a price you agree to pay when you choose to be a fan of Montana and live in God's country? The cost of travel for western teams and their fans suck but it is what it is. I don't expect easterners to understand or sympathize. The choice is to put up with the travel issues or to move, not to expect the rest of the country to make accomodations to make life easier.

I'm ok with giving Frisco a chance not because of some misplaced sense of fairness but because Chatty seems to have been good but not great. I expect Frisco to be good and maybe it can be great.
88, I didn't see him say anything about Griz fans having it made easier on them. No matter where it's at isn't gonna matter to us because we have to pay no matter where it's at. His point is that it is the soft nature of the east coast bitches that is annoying. "I'd have to drive 12 hrs!" :geek:

They won't drive 5 or 6 to go to it so it doesn't matter anyway.

FYI...

The Southland sent an e-mail blast out that went to their mailing base of people who have subscribed to SLC Now, bought through the SLC Shop, etc...

Hopefully, the numbers on the Frisco site goes up. Can you imagine if they got a commitment of 15-20k through the site? It would be tough for the NCAA to turn down...

That's what I'm wondering? If it's just netboys saying they would buy tickets then it's bullshit and has no bearing. If there is an actaual financial committment then OK but people signing up on a site doesn't mean shit to me and it shouldn't to the NCAA.

There's no financial committment tied to the pledge of interest, but it does show that people are at least interested. It does require you to put your contact info so its a little bit more accurate at guaging actual interest than a mere online poll.

If the site gets 15,000-20,000 pledged interest it will be a good supplement to the presentation given to the NCAA. Its not their fireworks finale, but it may be a little thing that pushes them over the edge so to speak.

Hell, we have people here guaranteeing a sellout. That should be good enough for the NCAA. :)

I have no clue what kind of interest the game will get there. I'm not one of the "Texas supports FCS football guys" anymore (not that I really ever was to begin with).

All I know is that I personally would rather go to Frisco. There's a very good chance I'm going to Frisco next year regardless of the teams if the game is there.

There's a zero percent chance I'm going to Chatty next year unless Albany is in it. (so yes......its still a 0% chance).

Ok, that has a bit more teeth. If they get the 15-20K at least, less than 1/2 of those are gonna go when it actually comes down to it. As long as they have a large pool for defections not to matter then it would help them as the local Chattanooga community could never come close to claiming that in the past.

I will buy plane and game tickets. The only reason I wouldn't go is if work prohibited it. No different than any other event in my life.

That's something you'll just have to live with.

There is a bookmark feature at the bottom of the page.

No problem Hen. That's my plan as of today. I have personal reasons to go to Frisco besides the game (family in DFW) which makes it a win-win for me. I have no such desire to go to Chatty.

BTW, should I save you a place at the official CS.com pre-game tailgate or post-game party?

Looking like this is the place to have the post-game party at: http://www.lochranns.com/
