I went to Baylor. We’ve got tickets to the OK State game in November. We had to get a room in Hillsboro because they were all sold out in Waco. In fact, we got the room in Hillsboro about five minutes before the price shot through the rood. A room at the La Quinta in Waco went from around a hundred bucks to over three hundred.
Now the problem is parking. There is none! They say you can park downtown and catch a shuttle. The problem is there will only be 7 shuttles. It could take ten hours to get from the stadium to downtown which is only a few miles. They haven’t thought this through.
I’m trying to talk La Quinta in Hillsboro into providing a shuttle service. For a charge, of course.
Same story in Lubbock for home games. There is some free parking available about two miles from the stadium (I am too cheap to pay for parking.) The motels all know the schedule as soon as it is released and the price is doubled.
