    That actually brings up a good point. If we have a repeat of last year with the students only showing up for the "big games" like Kansas and Iowa while the upper deck section sits empty most other games, I'm going to lose my ****. I won't be able to get season tickets this year now (and likely subsequent years) and would gladly pay for a seat at full price.

    If it's another season of half-filled or empty seats in the upper section, I'd say the AD needs to start selling off those seats to people wanting to sign up as new season ticket holders that will actually go to games.

    Selling my Kansas tickets paid for the entire year for me last year. Put them on craigslist at a rediculously high price just as a joke. If they sold, I was making a lot of money. If not, I was going to the Kansas game. win-win.

    Re: Tickets Sold Out

    I'm a cardinal donor sitting with 2 seats in the non donor section. I would like to upgrade but can't really complain as I'm happy I have the seats I got. Problem is..starting with JP's letter last month..the communication is **** poor. Letters and emails are sent .. but essentially tell us nothing...the current season ticket holders should have given the opportunity to request upgrades or additional ticket before the outside was eligible to potentially purchase any

    Put me firmly in the "Expand Hilton" camp now. I don't care how you do it or how much it costs. Find a way to add 5,000 more seats.

    Re: Tickets Sold Out

    Does anybody now how many season tickets were actually available for sale? Like if every season ticket holder showed up to every game and nobody else showed up how many empty seats would there be?


    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    Time to start looking into relacing the middle concourse with seats and then tunnels to an new concourse outside the areana. That way the sides wold have no break, just seats from floor to roof. This would probably add 3-5k seats.

    Except do NOT give up naming rights for someone funding the expansion. HyVee magic does not do it for me.

    I have a feeling that next year is going to be an even bigger cluster f. With the ticket prices and donation levels both going up, I have a feeling that there will be a fair number of old school fans who refuse to pay the money to keep their tickets, but that won't be finalized until after the renewal period. Which happens after the season tickets sell out. Good problems to have, but there will definitely be some ruffled feathers when it is all said and done.

    Re: Tickets Sold Out

    I know some people were waiting until August to buy the $175 corner upper deck (I was planning on it as well), but the site now shows those are sold out as well.
