Re: Pitt/Flight? Believe the team stayed out there for both games, having flown up to Pitt from Waco on Saturday, 11/10. Assume team flew home to ABE after the Pitt game.
Team often travels the day/night before each game. Noontime or 2pm tips at Holy Cross and American come to mind. Can’t say with any certainly that they did in the case of VCU.
Since guarantees are often lised to include, “hotel and local transportation,” I’m assuming air transport is at our expense. Again, not 100% sure. Other posters may know for sure.
