    Just got a phone call from Bill Snyder

    Okay, so I just received a phone call that was a recorded message from Bill Snyder. He thanked me for turning out to the game at Arrowhead last year to help make it a home field advantage for KSU, and encouraged me to do the same this weekend with tickets starting at just $30.

    Just curious, but have any other Clone fans gotten this call? I have no idea how I could have ended up on this list. I got tickets to the game last year via Ticketmaster and I sat on the ISU side. I went to our game at KSU in 08, but I got tickets on Stubhub not through KSU. To my knowledge, I have never purchased anything from KSU or provided them with my phone number.

    Hey Snyder, get the hell off my phone!

    I guess cheering for Iowa State gives K-State an advantage? You must suck at cheering for ISU then...

    You'd think Grandpa Bill would have more important things to do this week than dial up thousands of people who went to last year's game.

    Edit: Sorry, I missed the "recorded message".

    Yeah, no doubt recorded since Bill probably doesn't know how to use a telephone. Now when he comes across my telegraph asking me to buy tickets, then it is time to throw down!

    KSU was likely given credit for your purchase, and you were included in their stats. Last year I was ****** to hear that people were buying through outlets other than ISU for just this reason. However, after seeing how F'd up ISU is with their ticket sales, I can no longer complain. If ISU can't get their **** together in terms of ticketing, then good for KSU getting credit for some of our sales. Maybe crap like this will eventually be a catalyst for ISU to have a better ticket policy for games like this.

    Quite frankly, ISU's ticketing in general is horrendous, but that is a much longer discussion.

    Seems odd that KSU would have been given credit for a Ticketmaster purchase in the Iowa State section for a game in which we were considered the home team. And yeah, I agree, I would rather purchase through the ISU office, but they haven't handled this game very well at all in that regard.

    My only question is why do you still have a telegraph?

    Yeah, i have no idea how they determine who to give credit to when purchased through 3rd party outlets, but that is the risk that is run - that you get labled a KSU supporter and they get the credit. But, if Pollard & Co. don't care about that, then why should we?

    Re: Just got a phone call from Bill Snyder

    I had pony express pass the message along this morning.....

    I did go thru ticketmaster last year and had tickets on the ISU side, but haven't gotten a call yet. Will pass it along if I do. Aeroclone, what state are you in? I wonder if they got a calling list for missouri and kansas addresses from ticketmaster to solicit this year assuming they are mildcat fans.

    That could be possible, I live on the Kansas side of KC. Seems like an odd way to do that considering you got to identify KSU or ISU section when you purchased the tickets, but when it comes to Ticketmaster, you can probably throw common sense out the window.

    This would've been a great time to use, "There I was, minding my own business..."
    :

    You should call him back and get KSU's game plan for this week's game.

    OK, I'll stop now.

    And who is responsible? If we want to get better on the field, we also need to get better off the field.
