    Anyone camping tonight?

    If not, how early is everyone getting in line to get into Hilton?

    2 hours before tip off is our plan. Hopefully that's early enough.

    From my experience with the Kansas game last year I would say that is not early enough.

    I would say the latest you want to show up is 11 but don't expect great seats if you do that.

    Holy **** I doubt it is that bad. I showed up 2 hours before the doors opened for the Kansas game and got great seats.

    Agree with the others, don't think that's nearly enough time.

    I found my way into Hilton through the steam tunnels earlier today. Already in my seat.

    That's based on the idea this game won't be nearly as big as the Kansas game. The diehard fans are pumped, but a lot of students who have tickets probably don't even realize we've played a game yet. We aren't looking for great seats either, just looking to get in.

    I'd be pretty surprised if it's that bad.

    I showed up probably 90 minutes before doors opened for the KU, and ended up with fine seats (below the concrete barrier), but I was also in the area of the stairs that got pushed through the doors, and couldn't even get my card swiped if I wanted to.
