    I have spent the better part of two hours calling all over their school trying to find out where i can park an RV friday night and plan to tailgate Saturday. Do any of you that have traveled to their godforsaken stadium before know?

    I'd email Plati and ask him if he knows who at KU handles the parking/tickets. Get a name of a higher up rather than the pleeb that answers the general phone.

    I know this thread is interupting everyone's ability to obsess about Texas in peace and quiet but I finally got some good info for us all. The dude to talk to is David Moore. His number is 785-864-7293. This is what he told me.
    1) Parking all around the stadium is spoken for by season tix holders etc. For those of us looking to tailgate he recomended parking lot 90.
    2) You can see the parking lot I am discussing here: http://www.parking.ku.edu/0809Map.pdf
    3) For those of you driving in the evening before We can drive into that lot 90, it will cost $20 per space taken, and set up camp. He estimated that the 25 foot RV I am in will require 3 spaces.
    4) At approximately 7 or 7:30 Sat morning they will begin charing people to come into that lot. Before trouble starts you should go to the North end of that lot and talk to one of the guys in redshirts. They will take your money for parking.
    5) about 2 hours prior to the start of the game a shuttle service starts from that lot to the field which is over a big hill so Dave recomended the shuttle. The shuttle also runs at half time and after the game.
    6) Apparently that lot is a good time and a lot of tailgating goes on there. HE has already had a number of calls from Buffs coming out there and he has pointed all of us to that lot.
    7) to get there go i-70 east to the East Lawrence Exit (Apparently the West Lawrence Exit is closed for construction anyway). That exit turns into Massachusets street. Follow that South to 19th and head west. At Naismith turn North and go to Schweigler. The lot is at the corner of Naismith and Schweigler.

    I will be there in a Cruise America rented RV with as much Black and Gold crap as I can drape on the damn thing. Come have a beer.

    Dave Moore is very helpful give him a call. We are renting an RV as well. Look for a very tall yellow CU flag and come by for a beer!
