Flying for $320 (bought in November) to Newark, staying w/ cousins in New Rochelle and getting rides for free and paying $20 for scalpers upper bowl tix. Will spend less than $400 total. St. Louis and MVC can go blow.

Roundtrip flight from Chicago was $120

3 nights at the Stewart (FKA Affinia): $770

Transportation: $100 (subway is the best way to get around, probably take an uber late at night)

Game tickets: $300 tops, assuming 3 games

That's $1,290 without splitting the hotel room. I'll give you another $250 on a roundtrip flight from Omaha to Chicago, but that's probably on the high end.

I get that it's not the convenience of St. Louis, but if Creighton loses early, it's not like you're stuck in an armpit like STL. It's New York, there's tons to do and see. The one thing I do miss about about MVC is the reunion type atmosphere but that's part of the sacrifice.

So $370 for two people for airfare from Omaha? Okay bud.

The fact that we have an MVC topic is kinda weird, but even more so now that hilltop meant for it to discuss if the team he posted could win in the MVC. Why are we all talking about travel?

Because I brought it up. I'll answer OP's question though, first place.
