Spartan fans in tour take bus to Minneapolis

No matter how many time Michigan State goes to the Final Four, it never gets any less exciting.

There's plenty of things going on for fans before tip-off Saturday night.

A lot of the action happening this weekend is at the Nicollet Island main Street area.

There is a fan festival, pep rallies and concerts pretty much from dawn until late at night.

That's what awaits fans that left Friday morning on a charter bus from Okemos.

Plane tickets were running close to $1,000 each.

The tour group lost its charter plane because Texas Tech fans drove the price up too high, but they were still willing to endure the long bus ride to support the Spartans.
