While it is a BIG number, have you thought about the money that our current coach is costing us in bowl money last year, this year, and more than likely next year? Insignificant bowls pay much less......Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)

I think that hotel was the old Prince Murat. If my parents and their friends were going to spend the night for a game. they would stay there. When the Sheraton was built, they transitioned there and would pregame on the 5th floor because the cocktails were free. Hotel offered shuttle service, so ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
