Re: Going to the South Regional
Just got back today from Texas. We didn't know where our tickets were because the section wasn't on the seating chart, and before we left my friend said "sorry he couldn't get us better seats", so didn't expect much. They ended up being second row stradling the center court line on the opposite side of the teams' benches. We sat right in the middle of the Texas A&M alumni, they do some strange cheers. I did root for OSU, I've watched Connelly and Oden play throughout high school so I figured what the hell.
The funniest part of any of the games was near the end of the OSU - Memphis game Callipari spent the last two minutes doing nothing but cussing at any ref that would come near him. The refs didn't even look at him though and he was sayin' some nasty stuff, I think he wanted a tech and I can't believe he didn't get one. I thought it was hillarious though. We stayed at the same hotel as Tennessee and they had a big reception for the team and the fans after the loss to OSU, I shook Bruce Pearl's hand and got some free food and drinks. I think they thought I was a Tennessee fan because I had a Colts championship shirt on (Peyton Manning connection, I guess).
