    Isn't this kind of embarassing for KU?

    Don't get me wrong as I know we have done promotions in the past ourselves to sell tickets, but getting a free ticket KU football ticket to any game you want for just filling out a survey seems somewhat embarassing to me. Am I wrong?

    Kind of, but it's embarrassing to have all those empty seats, too. At least they're trying something, as desperate as it is.

    Shoot, if they are offering deals like this only two games into the season, imagine the deals they'll offer to attend their late season games after they are 1-8. I'd hold out guys. Heck, they might start packaging free tickets with free popcorn, pop, and a hot dog. Like any type of purchase, you want to wait to buy at the low and I'm betting their team will only go lower.

    Re: Isn't this kind of embarassing for KU?

    I tried but apparently they sent the link out to specific emails (alumni base and students) and if you didn't get the email you can't get the tickets. I tried an email of mine and the authenticity code (email) didnt match so no tickets for me. Would have been nice to get two free tickets for the ISU game ha.

    Like drugs...the first one's free.





    Unlike drugs...Kansas football isn't fun or addictive

    I don't think anyone in Lawrence really cares about KU football, so not really that embarrassing.

    Re: Isn't this kind of embarassing for KU?

    Looks like a good way to get free tickets for the ISU game there. Is this how Chris is getting the tickets for the CF bus?

    No. The football team embarasses themselves enough during the year.

    Re: Isn't this kind of embarassing for KU?

    If they had kept Gill, I would understand the promo. You would think they would back the new staff. When it comes to football, they are very fair weather. They'd rather sit on the hill for free.
