    Play an 11, then a 3 or 14 for Sweet 16.
    Then a 2, 7, 10, or 15 for Elite 8.
    Then a 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 12, 13 or 16 for the Final 4.

    Book it!

    Portland/Seattle and LA would be great destinations before Indy

    Boring drive, but very manageable for students. May be our best option honestly.

    West bracket in Seattle wouldn't be a bad combo either. Seattle is easy to get to from DIA, and LA is the home of our 2nd largest alumni base.

    Portland or Seattle. Short cheap flight and don't need a car when you get there. Would take that over a drive through Nebraska any day.

    For myself? Agreed. But for students, Omaha would be the best destination.

    At this point I don't care about the students. I think I am annoyed by the excuses. Take the Halloween football game for example. The most common excuse used was: the game is too excuse. My response is you stopped partying too early. You are in college, party all night and then head to the game.

    Dude, there's never a good reason for me to go to Nebraska. The joys of having graduated is that I would much rather pay double the price to go to a place like Seattle than to drive to Nebraska.

    Because clearly we should blame the students for a retarded start time the day after the second biggest party weekend of the year

    One of us looks for solutions, the other makes excuses. See if you can figure out which one you are.

    So then what are your solutions for getting students to a 11am game after Halloween for a team that hasn't had much success?

    That is my point. **** the students. Why do you have to do anything to get to the game. Are these not independent young adults anymore? Let the students come up with their own solution (like host their own all night parties).

    I guess I would just prefer honesty at this point where they say they aren't going to the game because the team sucks and the game is boring. Don't make some excuse to show you can't evaluate situations properly.

    If you can't get a "3", it's probably the best spot to advance from.

    I don't care where we play as long as we get in with a favorable matchup to advance a game in the tournament.
