Other than when I've been given free tix from a player this is by far the cheapest prices I've paid for a road game. I will use the extra $ to invest in some earplugs.
    If you sit on the West side bring sunglasses and sunscreen.

Saturday is still up in the air.
    A couple of things to see in Memphis are they turned the old basketball arena into a Brass Pro Shop and it's amazing, also I would go see the old hotel where Martin Luther King was shot, it really made an impact on me Graceland not so much.

    thanks for the suggestions. Unlike Paul Simon, I really have zero interest in going to Graceland. I would like to visit the Lorraine, both for myself, and mainly my son. I've read several books about Dr. King - he was very complex man.

    Graceland was seriously the worst. Unless you're a huge fan of the King, it's just not worth it. It's especially crappy when you have a 2 year old whose sole goal is to cross the velvet ropes and go in the restricted areas. It puts an embarrassed parent in a bit of a bind, determining whether they should linger in the no-go zone of the King's bedroom for an extra few seconds, since the parent and its unruly toddler are already on the wrong side of the law, only to be asked to leave the mansion whilst the rest of the poor parent's family tours the effing racquetball court.

    I hope you survive the heat and sun Saturday. It was brutal for me and I live here. Wasn't a good day for Garment wearing.

    The game sucked. No need to rehash that. Other impressions from the trip

    * Mississippi is rural. Like Montana with trees and humidity rural. I was shocked at how little there was between Memphis and Starkville. On the way home we went through several small (population under 1500) towns see Oxford.
    * Starkville (or as the local says it Stalk- veell) is about the size of Spanish Fork. It is amazing they have a university there. There really is almost nothing else in the town - kind of reminds me of Pullman, WA. Oxford was more of what I expected the college town to look like - older southern architecture.
    * Everyone was super friendly - except our waiter at the Rendevous. I'm wondering if he was related to whoever Kai Nacua sucker punched
    * The cowbells are annoying as hell. I was impressed at how they were shaken in unison at different times.
    * Judging from my son and nephew's eyes the girls were some of the cutest of any roadie we've taken. Though that have more to with it being 90 degrees and lots of Daisy Dukes >>>> 5 layers in Michigan, Nebraska, or Indiana
    * Biggest surprise is how white the fanbase is. 99 % Caucasian in the stadium.
    * Seeing the Lorraine Motel was very memorable for my brother and me. To our boys it was the same as seeing Abraham Lincoln or JFK. So much before their lifetime, it's just a name.
    * Driving by cotton fields in bloom, had the opposite effect on me. It brought on a sense of melancholy. It is hard to imagine what may have happened in some of those fields, in the not-so-distant past.

    Overall it was a good weekend with horrible game sandwiched in.

    Ate at the Rendvous and walked around Beale St. BBQ was great. Though not as good as the Salt Lick, IMO.

    I hope you had a good time at the game. The crowd was very small but I think that had to do with start time and heat. That is the smallest crowd I have seen in a long time. I saw several people with Utah shirt. What was up with that? That is like me wearing a Miss State shirt to LSU vs Ole Miss at LSU. Also did you get into the book store and buy anything? I saw a lot of little kids with BYU shirts opening up a cow bell box. I thought that was pretty cool.

    The heat was horrible and felt sorry for the BYU defense. I figured many of them served missions here in the South and knew what to expect.

    We can't figure it out either.

    So I am heading to the San Jose St. game... It will most likely be my last BYU one for the year. Does anyone have any tickets they will pay me to take?

    You are a glutton for punishment.

    Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

    LOL. I finally got around to checking for tickets on stubhub... It would cost me more to go to a Texas high school football game. Of course, the Texas high school football would most likely be more entertaining.

    Bummer... I purchased some $9 tickets on the 45-50 just about an hour ago. But thanks for the offer.

    If you still have them, I'm thinking of heading down for the game.

    I didn't get on the road early enough, so didn't make it to the game. Thanks for the offer, though.

    I think there's a reason they didn't contract with a bowl game before this season.

    I'll go with you to the bowl. I always love to go to the cotton bowl. I wonder who they will have this year.

    Fresno in and of itself is awesome. Fresno with rain should be quite a treat.
