Good Morning!

Are you ready to follow us to Ithaca, NY?

Well, that's too bad.  We're not going.

A "snow hurricane" is hitting the Northeastern United States and the ol' Kia Rondo just isn't ready to go ice skating.  We love her, she's been great, but we have families and putting our lives in the hands of a  stationwagon/SUV to see the Big Red of Cornell is too risky.

With Cornell out of the equation for tonight, that also takes Syracuse off of the schedule for tomorrow, so we need a backup plan.  We're frantically flipping through the college basketball schedule and calling places to make this work.  And if it does work, it will be a Peyton Manning-like audible.

Right now, we're leaning towards going to Virginia Tech for the Maryland game or to Georgetown to see the Hoyas play the Fighting Harangodies.  Both are Saturday games so we'll be taking it easy today unless we find a way to make it to the Idaho St.-Portland St. matchup.  (And we're not counting that out.)

If you have any other suggestions, e-mail us at collegebasketballroadtrip@gmail.com.

Now, I'm going back to bed to sleep off this crazy night at Morehead State.  

Talk to you soon.

I agree.  Valpo tonight, Knoxville tomorrow, and either Purdue on Sunday or XAVIER in Cincy!!!  Easy trips.  Good Matchups!

If given the chance you guys have a no brainer than to head to Knoxville. After the game you can help the Vols with there trash duty on I-40, finishing up their "community service"

Blacksburg is a great college town. Have been there many times, my brother is a VT Graduate. There are a lot of great bars for you to get into some good trouble at Drew. If that is a late game you guys could do the Cats and Orange at 12:00 then head to Blacksburg from Knoxville. Be about a 4 hour drive and lot better place to party than anywhere near the UT campus or fans.

Why not do the Butler/Valpo game tonight and UK/UT game tomorrow?

Realizing this is the College Basketball Roadtrip, you could hit a high-school game that has a top recruit.

You guys need to go to the pros vs. cons game (UK vs. TN)  Been entertained by everything you've done but we are missing our live blogs and need our KSR guys hanging with us!

Personally, I think the Hoya/Irish match up would be much more interesting. Keep up the good work guys!

Are you kidding!  You need to head up to Ithaca nad the 'Cuse.....This snow is over and done, plows have cleared the roads, even Kia Rondos going 70 on Rt 81!

When you are here you will then see why the Syracuse fans are the most die-harded fans in the country......18" of snow won't even slow us down.  Come on Suck it up and be the "MEN" that you should be.

LET'S GO ORANGE!

If you want to turn your back on the Big Blue Nation and go with some other groups of losers, though, my top choices within reasonable driving distance and away from the hurricane-blizzard would be:

Cincy @ WVU - Huggy Bear affiliations galore in a solid Big East matchup.

Vandy at Arky - 2nd best team in SEC playing a surging Hogs squad that could stay hot and make the NCAA with a strong finish; also you'd be showing Pelph some love.

Maryland @ Va Tech - 2nd and 3rd best ACC teams in a strong matchup at an unusual location; also, I hear Blacksburg is an awesome college town and you could potentially find some instersting 'after the game' tidbits to share.

BC @ GA Tech - Derrick Favors.

Minn @ Ill - Just to show the Tubbster some love.  And c'mon, who doesn't love a mediocre Big Ten matchup? 


-Don't go to Georgetown vs ND, please!  I'd rather watch paint dry.

Or get you CBS benefactors to spring for a some commuter flights to Syracuse.  That's really a game you should not miss - even if you have to eat the flights.
