    I agree. Better tv exposure, but we'll struggle to sell our ticket allotment. I know the athletics' department was excited about potentially going back to Tempe, having a lot of functions, events, etc. I'm sure being in Shreveport will scale back those plans significantly.

    You know that you can buy a ticket in support of the Buffs and not go because it is a pain in the ass to get to that "place". Just thought I would throw that out.

    I am sure there are a lot of charities that would accept it.

    Definitely. I believe the ath. dept. is going to have a program like that. Buy a ticket, or two, or a dozen, if you can afford to do so even if you can't go. Whatever we don't sell we have to buy as an athletic department!

    My boss is a Tide diehard, I am hoping that due to the circumstances he approaches me at some point and says "**** it, let's go to the game!!!" he is the kind of guy that will do that. :crosses fingers:

    Well, Allbuffs bought season tickets. Is there any interest in buying bowl game tickets around here?

    If you turn down a bowl bid can you still get the three weeks of practice for being invited?

    :lol:

    better show up in droves... this is from Chip Brown of the DMS

    ■ Petrosun Independence Bowl: Even though Alabama is playing in this game for a second straight year, Tide fans will turn out in droves. That's good because Colorado fans won't.

    I looked up flights there and it sucks getting there unless you happen to charter a flight.

    $550/person round trip. You have to make a layover in Dallas and take a AA puddlejumper over to Shreveport. I love the buffaloes, but I also love not taking AA flights.

    Nuh uh, I'm going to Vegas.

    But, by adding only 4 1/2 hours, and just 110 miles, you can go through my home town, San Angelo, TX. Well worth the detour! :thumbsup:

    Then he'd be a closeted Auburn fan.
