    I'm guessing all season ticket holders got this email. Tournament ticket opportunities being sent out in November.

    Last year the allotted seats kind of sucked, I ended up buying on stub hub. I wish we could get some idea of location.

    About how much are these tickets for single games? (If I'm in vegas, I don't necessarily want to spend all day watching basketball)

    Will be there, but probably will go the stub hub/scalping route, since if I'm in Vegas I'll be attending the Buff games and could care less about the other sessions let alone paying for them.

    I sent in my request. Thinking about taking advantage of the hotel packages they're offering too.

    Anyone have any good ideas on airfare? Did a quick check last week and flying in Thurs AM and flying out Sun was around $300 a person, which is ridiculous.

    I remember going to the Big 12 Tournament, and they were so excited that a actual CU fan was buying their tickets. Seemed that they sold most of their allotment to other schools (Kansas). So happy how times have changed

    Be aware of Spirit airlines, they charge for CARRY ON BAGGAGE. They now charge $25 per piece of carry on luggage per flight leg.

    Yeah, Spirit's a no go for me. I saw that one.

    I'm thinking of seeing if any of the smaller airfields around here have flights to Vegas.

    I wondered the same thing. They give you access before the games, do they kick you out if you don't have tickets?

    Pretty sure that is incorrect. They have this old guy on a golf cart that drives around checking to make sure you are not in bed.

    So, the ticket office was supposed to charge cards for the Pac12 tourney today. Has anybody received any notification or seen a charge hit their card yet? I haven't yet, hence my interest.

    No. Nor any confirmation emails or info on my account that I will be getting the tickets.

    Damn. Well, if they screw us over we'll probably save money buying at the door for sessions anyway. We won't be in the CU section that way, but there will definitely be tix available regardless.

    So, just got the email from the ticket office to say that I was selected. Unfortunately, since they had explicitly stated in the email that we'd be notified on Monday the 14th about those, I made other arrangements and bought my tickets directly from MGM Grand this morning. Had to call in and cancel my order through the CU ticket office. Hopefully that opens up a set for somebody who might have been on a CU wait list.
