You can define a sellout how you want to but I will define it as not being able to walk up to the ticket window at kickoff and being able to get in the stadium. I have never once been able to go up to the window at an MU/KU game and not been able to get a ticket since the 80's. Why in the world would a team that breaks attendance records against Florida International have to sell NU tickets as a three game package? If every games sells out why would this have to be done? I agree that KU and Mangino have made huge strides since the days of getting 19K for football games (November 2001) but please don't try and make us all believe that Lawrance has all the sudden become a tough place to get a ticket for a football game, any football game.
As far a being a punk, you are the one talking big on the internet so how is Mr. Kettle doing?
1st off, you couldn't walk up and get a ticket to the Texas game. My friend definitely couldn't, he had to get his ticket through other means. You can have all the anecdotal stories you want, but we all know you're full of it.
2nd, the fact that you could walk up and get a ticket to a KU/MU game since the 80s means absolutely nothing. What do the 80s and 90s have to do with the now? What does 2001 have to do with today? Nothing. Things have changed.
3rd, It doesn't matter if we sell out against FIU. Do you know nothing about Nebraska fans? Nebraska fans will buy tickets months ahead of time. Nebraska fans will buy entire season ticket passes just so they can go to an away game. Nebraska fans take everything to a whole different level. No place is a tough place to get a ticket for an NU fan. All we can do is make it a little bit more difficult.
OK, how about last year at Arrowhead? KU did not sell all of their tickets to that game. Guess what? I bought 8 tickets through the KU athletic department. Yes, I know, KU won, nice win, we won the game for #1 the year before. However, such a loyal, selling out, record breaking fan base versus FL International should always sell all the tickets against Mizzou, right, even if the game was on the moon? For some reason you think this is only a KU issue. Hell, Mizzou only had one real sellout last year and anyone could get in if they wanted. My simple point all along is the NE fans will make this a hard ticket not KU's. Is that fact that hard to addmit? KU fans make the MU/KU game in hoops a hard ticket in COMO. Deal with reality not dreams buddy!
