I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess you didn't snatch up a bunch of Final Four tickets a month ago. Oops, cause the Syracuse Orange are en route to Atlanta to play in the 2013 Final Four and try to keep this magic bus rolling.
How do we get tickets? How can I see the Orange? Where do we even start? Where is Atlanta?
Easy. Let's take it step by step.
SU Athletics has already spelled out the particulars about tickets through the school. As you probably guessed, you really should have donated $20,000 this year...
Syracuse University ticket, hotel and travel packages will be exclusively handled by Anthony Travel. No package sales will take place at the Carrier Dome Box Office or its phone lines. All tickets will be picked up at the Final Four Site in Atlanta (details will be provided in purchase confirmation email). Seating allocation will be by 2011-12 Athletic donation level, then date and time ordered. All tickets packages include the two semi-final games on Saturday, April 6 and the Championship game on Monday, April 8.
If you're a trustee or premium donor ($5K or over), you'll get a crack at tickets today.
If you're a season ticket holder or if you've donated between $125 and $4,999, you'll get a chance on Sunday.
For the rest of you moochers, you've got wait until Monday, April 1st between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST and you're only allowed two tickets per. Ticket purchase also requires a hotel package buy.
If you can wait until Tuesday, April 2nd, you can buy the tickets sans hotel.
Finally, Syracuse students get their shot via an email coming tonight.
Here's your rough schedule for right now...
Open practices at the Georgia Dome
12-12:50 p.m. Game 1 lower seed
1-1:50 p.m. Game 1 higher seed
2-2:50 p.m. Game 2 lower seed
3-3:50 p.m. Game 2 higher seed

That should get you started.
