Who is going to CUSA Tournament
I think me and my buddies are going to Memphis once again. This maybe a mistake but we are going back to yet another CUSA tournament. My history of going to the CUSA tournament.


2008: My 1st tournament leave Birmingham at 6am for the Tulsa game decide to hit up Beale Street before the noon tip.....UAB loses by 10. Now we are stuck in Memphis/Germantown no more games to play all these before we even check into the hotel!!! Not to mention I have 2 ticket books thank God for Memphis fans I could sell them.. Do not make NCAA

2009: Lets try this again. This year we stay in the Westin across from the arena!!! Much better hotel we actually get to check in early this year at 11am...once again we leave at 6am for the early session games...Takes the basketball Gods for us not to lose to USM so at least I get to see 2 games as we lose to Tulsa the next day and our NCAA hopes as well. Upside get wasted on Beale street walk back to the hotel

2010: Yes I drove this...me and my girlfriend 12 hour drive and oh yeah I have a 2 door car no back seat. Arkansas is a lovely state BTW. Well we get to the hotel decided not to stay downtown to save money, after we get to our room that is about the size of a large SUV we unpack eat and go to sleep. Ready for the big day of the tournament Memphis plays before us and loses to HOUSTON!!! As we get ready to play our game im calling all my friends saying Memphis lost!! We can win this, and sure enough USM takes us to school. To make it worse we took about 1000 pictures of stuff we did while in town and I somehow destroy the cameras memory card with all our pictures and my girlfriends birth of her niece....my friends love this story the best

2011: Elpaso I finally Said F*ck that

2012: JUST BOOKED A ROOM AT THE WESTIN GO BLAZERS!!!

RE: Who is going to CUSA Tournament
Back in the day, I would just watch all of the Sun Belt conference tournament games at the BJCC.
Get in car, drive 15 minutes, at game.
The last conference tournament game that I went to was when UAB lost to ODU in overtime in Mobile several years back.
It is hard for me to travel now when you have several kids and are married.

I did the El Paso trip. I can't describe how far away from home I felt that morning we lost. MISERABLE.

RE: Who is going to CUSA Tournament
Every trip I have been on to see UAB in a tournament, we have lost in the 1st round.

(We have done fairly well in the 'ham though)

I saw UAB play UCLA in Atlanta - Stamp's & George Wilkerson's first year along with the ODU loss in Mobile.

The tourneys were more fun under Anderson.

Remember - Denny Crum's last 2 games were losses to UAB & Murry Bartow.

(unless my memory has gone south again & it was XCMA)

RE: Who is going to CUSA Tournament
I am going!!! This is going to be my first trip to the CUSA tournament. Does anyone have any suggestions on reasonably priced places to stay? It doesn't have to be right around the arena.
