    They take a LOT of **** on this board, and in the past have deserved it, so when they do something right it's only fair to praise them. I just got off the phone with the CU ticket office. I had put on my form that I was interested in upgrading seats this season if they had some available. My points are miniscule at best, so I didn't like my odds, but you never know. Well, whomever from the ticket office was that just called was incredibly courteous and went above and beyond to make sure that I was happy with my seats and we explored every possible option for me to upgrade. There were a few tempting seats available, but ultimately I decided to stay where I was (my seats are really hard to beat for value).

    I know that the new CMO has only been on the job for a few months, and he has a long uphill battle to get things going, but I'm liking the direction he's already taken things.

    I will agree. I got a call yesterday from the ticket office, and they were great. Granted, I couldn't move my seats up (apparently there are almost NO tickets available unless you want to sit next to BCS), but they definitely seemed like they cared and did a good job trying to help me out.

    Now, who are all these assholes taking all our mother ****ing seats? How am I supposed to roundly chastise the ref and his ancestry if I have to yell over all the people in front of me? :pissed:

    It'll be beautiful to win that KU game in front of 10,000+ black and gold clad fans. I'ma stand outside the front entrance and laugh at all the circus chicken fans who can't get in.

    This is so exciting.

    Next step is a pre-season sellout of every game through season tickets while students are in a lottery to get seats.

    After that, we'll be talking stadium expansion.

    That could be coming soon. Bball student tickets have been sold out for a while now. A ton of people that wanted them aren't getting them and they over sell that section by a lot.

    They don't ... that's why they're called bleacher seats.

    But what do you care? You'll be standing for most of the games anyway, right? :thumbsup:

    Uh, lots of bleachers have backs and aren't just a bench. Would've been nice if the ticket office had mentioned it, or even better if they said I could've saved $70 and sat center court on a bench.

    One of the distinct advantages of going to the buffsmadness event was that you could pick out your own seats for purchase. I managed to get three pretty good seats, albeit bleacher seats, for the amazing price of $85/each for the entire season. That's $5.57 per game. I don't think that can be beat. Plus, I didn't have to put in any deposit. I just showed up, pulled the card off the seats, walked over to the ticket office, and paid.

    The Buffs are getting so much better, so quickly, that a big reason I purchased season tickets this year was because I was afraid opportunities like yours aren't going to be available in a year or two. The closest row they had to the floor in Section 6 was row 27. In that section, it is one row from the top.

    The view from my seats. Not too bad for $85.
