    Why? .......


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Wow. I don't care how bad my seats are right now for two games. I have better things to do than sit in a 5 hour line. Like... CF for example.

    It was a pretty bad idea. I was there at 4 waiting in line and people at 6:55 were jumping in line in front of me with their friends. I am just glad I got 3rd row.

    Someone would have left with a broken trachea if I was in your shoes... and it wouldn't have been me.

    Re: Cyclone Alley Ticket Pickup - Horrible

    Yeah I got there at 4:15 and opted for row 10 because I didn't want my view blocked by the hoop in the center sections. Obviously other people felt the same, as 4th row was available in the section directly behind the basket.

    It was taking a long time and I think they should probably put a limit on how many tickets you can get for people not waiting in line or something for next year.

    Re: Cyclone Alley Ticket Pickup - Horrible

    There were honestly people in line picking up tickets for 25 or more other people.

    Re: Cyclone Alley Ticket Pickup - Horrible

    So, shouldI try my luck at 9pm tonight, or just get tickets Monday or Tuesday? I'm only getting three sets of tickets, so I'm not being a d-bag.

    I don't know how the line is now. Like I said, I was in the first 50 people and it took me from 7 when they started to 7:30 to get my tickets. When I left, the line was about 9 tents north from the jacobsen end...so take that for what its worth.

    Re: Cyclone Alley Ticket Pickup - Horrible

    We camped out last night, were the third group of people, and are in row 4.
    I think this is a better idea than the voucher system. The only drawback is allowing people to get so many tickets for their friends. There should be a limit of 2. This way, you get the diehard fans up close.
    In the previous years, people who never cheered got good voucher numbers. I recall people sitting on their hands for the KU game last year in the first few rows.

    I don't. You're still going to have a bunch of weak fans in the front rows cause they gave their voucher to their buddy. There really should be a limit of one.
