    Alleluja!!

    No more lottery for the KU game!

    Ticket Pickup
    Ticket pickup for the Men's Iowa and Kansas games will be Sunday, November 11th. Ticket pickup will be different this year in that tickets will be given out on a first come, first serve basis. So, you will want to come early to the ticket pickup to get a good seat at the games. More details to come.

    Re: Alleluja!!

    Is this for student or general public seats?

    Re: Alleluja!!

    That has to be student seats. Although I'm not sure what's meant by getting better seats. I thought there was 2 student sections. Cyclone Alley and general students.

    Re: Alleluja!!

    Its for the student section. Im really happy about it, now i have a chance to get my 1st or 2nd row seats. I hated the lottery it gave people that didnt care as much a chance to get the best seats in the house.

    Re: Alleluja!!

    This is for CA, but last year I was in the nosebleeds because my lotto number was like.. 4000ish. Only game I wasn't in the first 4 rows for. I was beyond angry because noone in front of me was a CA member, and they ended up taking the last of the Alley spots.

    Re: Alleluja!!

    At least that is more organized than a couple years they just made it a free for all rush to the seats the day of the game and this was during the back to back Big 12 title years! There was already a good line outside of Hilton at 7am for the Kansas game which I think started at 2pm that day. They let people in out of the cold around 10am but then the Hilton staff messed up and people that came in around noon somehow were allowed closer to the doors instead of forcing them to form a line like we had when we were let inside. So I sat in the cold all morning and wound up in a balcony seat anyways when someone that showed up right when they let us into the seats was able to get a lower level seat.

    I'd still kill for the seating the students have now. We didn't even get half that in the lower level.

    Wow, that is the new ticket policy? When I was a student you got a ticket that had 3 seats on it. You had one excellent seat, one so-so seat and one balcony corner seat. They just rotated you through those three seats all season.

    I actually prefer this methodology and believe that it really was a big part of the foundation of Hilton magic. By mixing the students up all throughout the building, you generally create an infectious sense of excitement as the students (who are fans) stand and cheer, causing those around them to stand and cheer. Under the current method, all of the student enthusiasm is concentrated (quarantined) in one section. This is why all of the lower deck people on the sides only stand and cheer for about a combined 2 minutes per game. Lets not even talk about the upper deck.

    bstegs:

    I totally agree with that, the whole vibe in hilton is just not the same as it was years back. There is no more hilton magic. If you have not seen a game in the 80s or 90s you would not know that it is sooooo much quieter now than it was then.

    There were games in the mid 90s where we were screaming the top of our lungs the entire game.

    Re: Alleluja!!

    I never went to a game before roughly '97. I only know what I wrote above from different accounts and the fact that it logically makes sense. It always has pi$$ed me off how so many people sit in Hilton.
    Same problem as football too. We don't ride the other team enough (by cheering all the time).
    I will admit though, that I have subscribed to the malaise. After cheering hard for several years and not getting it back from the whole coliseum, my will will has become weak. I am now a sitter too.
    I say this after having cheered so hard before I almost threw up. I was completely sober, too.
