    Do you think they would allow wearing a mask to basketball games?

    The season maybe a ways off but whatever.

    Could I wear a mask into the Coliseum? Would I have to wait after I got to my seat to put it on? Would they allow such a thing in the doors?

    Trying to bring a little flair to the student section

    They let a whole Gumby suit in Jack Trice, so I don't think they'll care if you bring a mask. I love seeing random things in the student section.

    In tribute to Randy Savage some group of guys needs to show up dressed as the "Macho Fans" this season. Cardinal and gold cowboy hats, sunglasses, bandannas sparkly shirts with fringed sleeves, etc.

    How about big cardboard cut out heads? like a huge (and of course good looking) Fred Hoiberg head. Or how about a Ron Burgundy? It would distract the opposing free throw shooter, 60% of the time it would work all the time.

    Not that it's not a good idea, but I'm pretty sure both of those exact ideas have already been done.

    cycloneman003 I believe would be the party responsible for the Ron Burgundy head (KU game in 2009 IIRC). Also featured Bob Saget and "Over the Limit, Under Arrest" for Morningstar and "Lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground" for Sherron Collins.

    How sad is it that our student section has become so sanitized that some poor kid feels like he needs to ask permission to wear a mask to the game?

    Alrighty, I just though I heard on here before that they sometimes weren't allowed, but now that I know they are I'm pretty excited.. (As excited as you can be of course 6 or 7 months until basketball season).

    Quite sad. There is no encouragement to break form.

    Considering you get turned away for wearing the gold version of the cyclone alley shirt or even the hoiberg jersey.....makes for a constricting atmosphere in regards to attire.

    Just have to find fun ways to work around. I'm telling you, Macho Fan is the way to go. You could easily incorporate the t-shirt into that look. Plus you get to yell "Oooohh Yeeeaaa!" after big plays. What's not to like?

    You'd have to commit now though. It will take all summer to create gameday attire that lives up to this standard:

    I understand and I don't. Why should I be able to pass my shirt off to a friend if I paid to sit in CA and he didn't?

    And I've never had issue with being dressed up provided I at least carried in my red CA shirt.

    A true Macho Fan wouldn't need a store-bought costume.
