    Excellent. I want that place to feel like a jet engine in the face for KU every time they have the ball.

    we need to start practicing now. Every time you see a KU fan, yell in their face for at least a minute. Grocery Store, church, work, everywhere.

    of course I do that all the time. I meant specifically target Kansas fans. If you already do that, then kudos.

    I was arguing with a KU fan on rivals and he was convinced they'd have 2-4k in attendance

    I hate to say it, but he is probably right. I know at least one KU fan that bought 14 season tickets last year (and re-newed this year), only because of this game. (They are pretty good seats too)

    Sorry but no. Kansas is not going to have ~18% to ~36% of the crowd.

    The ones that come now will be paying top dollar for the seats which is not bad for the program either. I expect to see a good amount of them there, they built a tradition of coming into Coors and owning us for a long time. I think it is a good thing they are coming to. We want witnesses to run back to Kansas and talk of the great monstrous Buffaloes merciless stampeding in over their squack squack jay hawks.

    Now when they return they will tell their fellow Kansas fans that the Colorado game is now no longer a cheap road game win, it is now an expensive road loss with arena full to the brim of in your face crazy fans. Times have changed, Roll Tad!

    There is no way there is 2-4k Kansas fans at this game. Some will find a way in, but that number is ludicrous. I was talking to a friend yesterday, he works for CU (for the next couple weeks, moving on to a new job soon). He could only get 2 tickets for the game, he then joked that he had to tell his wife tough luck, because he's taking his son.

    I bought season tickets last year knowing that this game was going to be as tough a ticket to find as there is. I didn't want to miss it.

    If any gayhawks start squawking about coming to this game, the first thing you need to do is ask them if they already have their ticket. If not, ask them to see what the price is on stub hub. The conversation will end right there.

    I like how the KU lady still thinks she's going to the game, even though she already desperately tweeted at Bill Self requesting tickets

    Was just looking at stubhub and comparing tickets to other sporting events locally. The cheapest ticket to the Kansas game is more expensive than the cheapest ticket to the broncos chiefs game. I love it

    KU will have 10-15% of the crowd. They will have a miserable experience.

    Have some KU fan friends that bought season tix just for this game cause the season was cheaper than that one game.

    Oh well, knew that was going to happen, but I highly doubt that is going to be anymore than like 4% of season tickets that were sold. Thanks for their donation to CU.

    I have friends, really, who had 4 seats behind home plate for the Rox when they went to the WS against Boston. They sold EACH seat for $16,000 per game. That is, if my math is correct, $64,000 per game. Too bad the Rox got rolled in 4. So, thought the KU game is not the magnitude of a WS, people do crazy **** if they have the bucks.

    Also as the ticket value increases, the celebs tend to show up because it is seen as an event to be seen at. Would be sweet to get some Rockies/Broncos at the game. Helps our visibility as a program.

    My dumbass roommate, who has had three people since July tell him to get student tickets for football and basketball finally tried to get them and they are sold out. Pretty impressive.

    Told my roommates the same thing. We can't get student tix anymore, but they were convinced they could get GA for cheap as has been the norm. It is going to be tough to get any ticket to any game I think.

    These fans are whiners, though I will say that if GA Tickets approach 1,000 I'd probably unload mine.

    I am thinking a lot of people are going to start to have that mentality. I have 4 extra tickets, do I sell them for $500 each likely to a KU Fan? Its getting harder and harder to say no.

    Why in the flying **** would you do that? Money be damned, don't sell your ****ing tickets unless it's to Buff fans
