    Really Stupid MBB tickets question

    My wife and I bought tickets on stubhub for the Nebraska game. We haven't been to a game for a while as we live out of state.

    It looks like the tickets are lacking the portion of the ticket at the top that the attendees tear off when you enter. Do you need this for MBB games? Is there such a portion? I got into trouble with my season football tickets when I accidently tore of the top. However I think MBB tickets are taken electronically. Anybody know?

    The tickets have a bar code which is electronically 'checked' at the door.

    Re: Really Stupid MBB tickets question

    Are student tickets included in the counter?

    ;)


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    IF THE SCANNING BAR SECTION AT THE BOTTOM OF YOUR TICKET IS ALREADY TORN OFF YOU NEED TO CONTACT THE TICKET OFFICE ASAP AND HAVE NEW TICKETS ISSUED. Whoever has the scanning bars section is a cheat, sounds like they will try to get in with that scan part. That part of the ticket will be invalidated once new tickets are issued. Our first set of Men's BB tickets never arrived in the mail, they reprinted them the same day while I was at the ticket office complaining.

    pretty sure the scanning bar on the tickets was implemented because of ticket fraud in the past.

    There are no tear-offs anymore. They just scan the barcode.

    Re: Really Stupid MBB tickets question

    But the barcode section is on the tearoff section of the ticket, prepared for both ways....Last Saturday at Nebraska, they just paperpunched the barcode section, no electronic gizmos for them edukated Bugeaters. Playing basketball in an old multipurpose gym with baskets that swung down from the ceiling and sitting on unfinished 2X8benches for upper level seats is classy.
    They are uptown now with regular baskets and varnished 2X8 benches.

    Yeah we bought a pair and it appears everything is ok so we only did it once. Stubhub is expensive (10% fee + $10 shipping on top of your ticket price) but works pretty slick.
