Oh wait.. that was Nash Vegas. Whatever. We should do it, and do it really GOOD.





I hear there is a guy in INDY with a mansion, that we could mess up. @MarqHusker could weigh in.
U RAH RAH! WIS CON SIN!

I am considering Iowa @ Nebraska, but not sure I will have the time. And, weather could be a factor, as well.

yup, I really enjoy games in Kinnick.  I've been to my share of cold weather - bad weather games since 1981, but it's tough to get me to move off the warm couch the day after Thanksgiving to sit in the cold after a 4 1/2 hour drive.

guess I'm getting old

Samford University games. Grandson is a walk-on there who played DIII at Beloit College (Wisconsin) in 2017. Transferred to Samford in 2018, but pulled a hamstring in his tryout last season. Normally wouldn't expect him to get much, if any, playing time, but Samford has very little depth at RB. I can see him playing on 3rd and short. If they need two yards, he can get them three.

As for Bama. We spent all of this season's funds at last season's Orange Bowl and CFPNCG.

For me it would be more the cost of the tickets and the hotel room after.I can deal with the cold and the drive.The results are the same the couch with your own facilities are tough to top

The living room/couch combo is the way to go, imo.

cost definitely weighs in.
the Hawk/Husker battle is usually the 11am game, so a room the night before is best with a 4 1/2 hour drive, but of course that means driving thanksgiving night
and then after the post game party it's nice to have a room for Friday night - Lincoln has a two night minimum, not sure about Iowa City, but room for 2 nights can get expensive
but, Heck, it's only money

Also, I found the place in Nashville where we went on Google Earth (1803 21st Ave S in Nashville). Looks like it's been closed up for a while. 
As for coming here for a Sharkwater party on October 12, that would actually be a fantastic time and location for a 2019 Board Meeting. We've got a pretty nice setup for it, that weekend the fall colors are in full bloom, and tickets shouldn't be that hard to get.

I do enjoy taking in a D3 game or three now that OSU plays all of their games at night.
Last year I saw My Union @ Otterbein, which was akin to watching Youngstown St go up against OSU. The Cardinals were getting heckled by their own Women's Basketball team for missing so many tackles, which was pretty funny.

Yeah, it's crazy. In a few weekends we're headed back to Paso for an event, and the hotel we wanted to stay at has a 2-night minimum at >$250/night. Apparently it's the time of year that every winery is doing zinfandel festivals or something. I'd pay it for one night (wife's mom & stepdad will be at that hotel), but we basically can't leave until after work best-case on Friday anyway, so no way. I'd much rather wake up and drive up Saturday morning than try to fight through LA traffic during rush hour just to arrive too late for even dinner. We ended up at a Hampton Inn that'll still cost almost $300/night but at least it's only a one-night minimum. 
Then the next weekend we're off to Tempe for a wedding, and all of the hotels are busy and expensive because of spring training (we'll get to see a Cubs game on Friday night though, which is cool). Luckily for that we were gifted a hotel room using points... It would have cost me $400 or 80,000 Hilton points to stay 2 nights in freaking Tempe!
I still don't know what we're going to do for the TCU @ Purdue game in September. I don't even know what the hotel situation is like in West Lafayette.

Unless I met my brother-in-law from Colo. Springs at Lincoln, I'd stay in Omaha, with no two-night minimum.

hopefully, West Lafayette has grown and changed quite a bit in the past 25 years.  That was the last time I was there.  Not much for lodging

Since I'm just a bit over an hour north of Omaha, if I'm sober enough to drive to Omaha from Lincoln, I'm simply going home.
Many folks stay on the west side of Omaha, it's only about 40 minutes, but I have trouble finding a sober driver.
