The trick is to stay in big cities...NOT BOISE. Once you are on a plane, it isn't that much different to go to Houston or Orlando than to Memphis. It is as easy for Louisville or UC to go to TCU (fly to DFW and bus to Ft. Worth) as it is to go to Morgantown (fly to Pittsburgh and bus through the mountains).
