    I might go this year, depending on who makes it.

    I’m going - but I’ve gone to every National Championship game since 2007. Now it’s a little closer.

    I hope, in 20 years, I can begin making statements of similar significance.

    Until then I’ll hope to be like you when I “grow up.”

    It’s a lot easier now that the game is played 25 minutes from my house. I was lucky in that my wife agreed to just make it part of our year vacation.

    Here's a conundrum. Let's say your team is playing in the semi-finals, and you're really hoping to make the trip to Kansas City (not that you might not go regardless). Do you book a hotel now to make sure you have a good spot, or do you wait until the final gun goes off tomorrow? I think air travel has to wait due to the expense of cancelling, but hotels, cars, and anything else could be planned for ahead.

    Asking for a friend who doesn't want to jinx his team (if you really believe in that stuff) by being proactive just in case. What have others here done in the past?

    Is that an invitation? I may go regardless if IUP makes it, but will definitely be there on Friday if they do.

    In a smaller market I would say you would definitely want to reserve a room. But KC has tons of hotels. There are multiple within walking distance of the stadium.

    This might help:

    It's Kansas City in December. While the locals might disagree, I doubt there will be thousands and thousands of "non-football" tourists itching to go to KC and stay in hotels in December. Think your friend will be more than OK waiting until after the outcome of the IUP game is final! Heck, I'd say he would have a pretty good chance of getting a room even if he waited until he got there.

    There is a KC chiefs game the same day as the NC Game, I think thats why he was asking, I'm sure they have plenty of hotels though.

    Are you saying the Commerce fans won't travel seven hours (shorter than some LSC conference games) to watch the national championship or are you saying that Harding is going to win on Saturday?
