This is great news! The fact that they are giving $40M of the proceeds to the University is awesome too.

I think he meant 2008, not the eighties. Anyway, go 'Hawks! I love having a competitive football team around here.

We haven't reached the level of the few programs (i.e. Nebraska) tha sell out no matter what the team's record. We will have sellouts in winning years and not in the losing ones. Not all cycles are on bike paths.

Absolutely.

Wait...are they taking the seats out of the stadium and selling them off? That's what I thought they were asking.

(Yes, I think they'll be able to sell them. People like football.)

I hope they sell them to incredibly loud drunk people.

I was wondering the same thing T_O_B. I was at KU very late 80's into the mid 90's and, if they weren't having any problems selling seats, there were an awful lot of people in attendence that had the best disguises in the world as empty seats! And there were even a few years in that span where the team was pretty good.

WTH does Patrick Boyle know? Can anyone agree he looks like a DBAG?
