Rochester is just about 284 miles away from Pittsburgh.  Take I-579 North to I-279 North to I-79 North to Erie, PA.  From Erie, PA, take I-90 East to Rochester, NY.

Carnegie Mellon would probably be staying at the Rochester Airport Marriott on West Ridge Rd. in Greece, NY on Friday night, but I would check with the CMU Dept. of Athletics to be sure if the Tartans win on Wednesday.  

First things first, Carnegie Mellon has to win on Wednesday at Case in an "unofficial UAA conference semifinal" to get to the "UAA title game."

Aaron,
Case has the worst record in UAA and knowing what the Tartans have on the line I give them the edge.  The game has yet to be played but I call this good tuneup for the game Saturday.  The Tartans need to show up with the intention of winning the UAA and posting their best record ever in school history.
 
I'm glad to see WRCT show their colors and broadcast the game.  Now get some energetic announcers to do the game and we'd all be happy. JK

Texman. Watch that announcer comment. Bobcat might be offended.

Rumor has it that the Tartans are already in Cleveland awating the "UAA Semi-Final" Game tonight.  My guess is that they are eating scrambled eggs at a Ponderosa as we speak. The Vegas Line is currently Tartans by 11.5 and moving up by the hour.

Great move by CMU to get into Cleveland the night before the game.  The last thing you want to do in a game you should win is get off to a slow start because of a long bus ride.

I just hope the Spartans of Case Western aren't eating any eggs because the Tartans are going to pount it out of them tonight.

As long as they stretch out properly "On the Whistle" old school style, The Tartans won't come out flat tonight. They have too much to gain with a victory.

Carnegie-Mellon is smellin' no more! Roger Rafson with the call- "Do you believe in miracles?.... NO" cries Mike (Icabod) Neer.
I hope they don't get caught watching the paint dry when they run "Power" (even if they change it up and call it "Ohio").

A NEW ERA:

Say farewell to the days of losing to Haverford, Hartman wanting to play, and the Adams Family tryouts.....

Bid a kind goodbye to ripper, chuckles, and rogaine.

So long to quiver and quake, shattered backboards, benec's winning shot, and anus's last game...

same goes for lassan knowing the hardwood, good time gary, keenan tutein, and big dave washington.

(i could go on all day here.  please add your own nostalgia)

Say Hello to a new era of winning basketball.

Glory days, da-de-da-da...

What about Two-bit, the Worm and Flava-Flav (aka the JV All-American)?

Or maybe the Wightman Bowl, Cardinal/Slate games and that slap on the wrist in Hotlanta?  Do you still remember how to do the the communication drill?  Can you still picture the mix-matched uniforms at Robert Morris?  Hey buddy, want to upgrade that tie?

I would like to think that the New Era at CMU is not surpassing the glory days, only building on them.

I've got to hand it to CMU-- they started the 2nd half on a 16-4 run and maintained control from there.  That has been one of Case's problems this year-- they've lost a lot of close, winnable games by losing control in the 2nd half.  It would be interesting if the Tartans can build on this and wrap up the UAA title at Rochester.

Ironically, if Case doesn't win at Emory this Saturday, then their only UAA win would be at Wash U, whom they hadn't beaten in 15 years prior.

As for the fan poll mentioned earlier, the UAA is the conference I know best, but since I live in the Great Lakes region, there are a bunch of tourney-worthy teams that get coverage in the local paper (of course, I can get a lot more information here at D3Hoops).  While I do know more about the women's teams in the area, the Great Lakes is significantly stronger on the men's side this year, and I've heard more about the local teams in the polls.  If you're still looking for a fan from Ohio, I may be able to help you.
You miss 100% of the shots you don't make.

It looks like all eyes will be on the UAA this weekend.  Rochester with a loss still has some hope of life in Pool C, so as much as we'd like to root for the underdog, I think the rest of the d3world will be hoping for a Rochester win.
