    I looked at ESPN and it’s showing 4pm air time. I believe that is ET.

    I haven't paid any attention at all.

    1-0 is what I care about. If that doesn't happen, no use of knowing information I can find out later if I need to.

    Since this NCAA national championship event will take place on public school property (McKinney ISD), does this prohibit fans from tailgating in the traditional sense (with alcohol) near the stadium?

    No it doesn't. Tailgating is allowed. I haven't heard if there will be a beer sale exemption for the Stadium during the game yet. Usually is is not sold during games.

    EDIT: Scratch that. The site has been updated, and it says no alcohol or tobacco during tailgating on the property. Heres a link:

    After reading this link, chances are this is likely only a one season arrangement for the championship game.

    I imagine. For an event you would think they would be flexible. What i was hearing is that they would. Seems that someone put their foot down. Bad mistake.

    As much as I don’t like it at a high school (I don’t care how nice it is, it’s still a hs), it’s better than having a uncertainty of where the game will be played. #screwsportingfc

    I don't know if it's MISD so much as it is Texas law prohibiting tobacco and alcohol on school property.

    Not if they plan on going no matter what. It’s an hour drive from Commerce- which is a lot closer than I what I am driving - but it still isn’t bad at all. I haven’t missed a National Championship game since 2007, not going to start now.

    This year at the BC... oh wait, 4 undefeated teams and 1 left out. Makes me love D2 football all the more that our 4 undefeated teams all make the Semi-finals.

    I believe KleShreen said it's never happened before.

    Correct, has never happened since the playoffs started in 1973.

    Went through all the playoffs for all of those years and checked each of the four teams in the semifinals until I found one with at least one loss entering the semifinal games.

    Thanks Kle!

    Saturday is going to be extra special.

    It would be nice if they put all 3 championship games (d1aa, d2, d3) in the same place. Do one on Friday night and then the other two on Saturday. I feel like it would boost attendance for all three games. I know if I was going to one then I probably would look into going to the other 2.

    Just take a flask of something smooth and mellow. Or two flasks.
