    I hope LSU beats UK like a drum. Then maybe Joker’s seat will get a little hotter. He must go!!

    There’s no way that all the lowers were gone in less than 30 seconds. My first try gave me uppers, now there are none left?!?!?! Sounds shady.

    ?) Did you get them at Memorial or online. As soon as I got on ticketmaster right at 11 I was already up in section 232.

    Last year I got mine after some of the ticket cancels went through (only two per households) and got a single around 9-10am so im gonna keep trying….. I never got a shot even at a single this year, not one time!

    Crazy I was hitting refresh on two computers with my friend from 6:58 ready for it. Thought I got in fast but ended up with Sec 221 up in top and none on the other one.. Can’t believe another friend got Section 12!



  23. BCO
    7:23 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    They were gone super quick I know that. Maybe the increased campers and people lined up at Memorial this morning had something to do with it? Ah well, Ive been the past two years. Ill just watch this go around on TV.

    Same here… Started refreshing about 6:58. Got two upper levels, row r then my credit card verification wouldn’t work. got out and back in and then there were none.

    what really tears me is the number of craigslist postings i’m sure i’ll see offering tickets for $400 each tomorrow.

    I’m madder than Rosie Odonnell in a male strip club!!! I had been trying since 7 am to get these damn tickets!! Thats B.S.! There is no way! My wait time said 3 mins.. and then it said 4mins.. then 5 mins.!!! it sounds like i was being passed as i was already in line!!!

    I was killing refresh and got in right away but somehow they put me up 211 row R? I’ve done the same thing the past two years and got lower level. Something fishy is going on.

    wow…hit refresh at 658, got in at 7 ant it took ticketmaster to 2 min to try to find some and came back nothing



  31. Legggooo
    7:30 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    I think they offered less lowers this year via computer since the campers argued last year about not getting good lowers.



  32. ffffuuuuuuuuu
    7:31 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    man, this blows. started refreshing at 6:50, got in as soon as they went up… nothing.

    ebay has some going for 900 right now and the list keeps growing by the second



  34. bigjhagan
    7:32 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    Ive done the same last few years and never got lowers.. Its a pretty lucky thing to get them..



  35. bigjhagan
    7:33 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    My friend got section 12 online… I can’t believe they were even available that close to the court. You would think everything real low would go to the campers



  36. BCO
    7:34 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    to be honest the campers deserve all the lowers. but there still should be plenty. i was hoping for lowers…i probably would have given uppers away because id rather watch from the couch then be watching from that rocky, cramped up cliffside that is upper level rupp.

    ah well people…dont despair. itll be on TV and if you really wanna go, some fake fan will be selling his or hers for an astronomical amount of money…

    I believe the campers should get dibs on the lowers. I’ve camped out the last two years and ended up in the upper level both times. I got them on my computer this morning and the tickets are either as good or better than the camp out tickets. It’s disappointing when you camp out and end up with crappy tickets. So if those lowers are going to the campers (and I don’t think they are), then I’m ok with it.



  38. BCO

    i got lowers last year online.



  39. kyrobman
    7:37 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    I guess if you don’t work and can camp out you are able to get them oh wait thats right I have a job. Ebay $900+, why does ebay allow this? Level 9 Pissed right now.



  40. enough already
    7:41 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    same as the rest was on first thing…. came back with nothing…. wonder if they held some of these back like they did the legends game?



  41. Early Bird
    7:43 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    keep trying on ticketmaster…tickets will come available once they receive duplicates. they will release those immediately



  42. Hosed....
    7:43 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    I agree with the notion that the campers should get the first allotment of lowers, but do the math. 600 tents, I’ll be generous and say 5 people per tent, that’s 3000 tickets for campers. That’s 4,000-6,000 tickets in lowers left



  43. NKY_UK_fan
    8:10 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    43. Actually, they can get 2 tickets per person so that’s 6000 tickets for campers.



  44. JCatfan

    As much as I would love to agree with you, Hosed, keep in mind that the little guys (us) are
    competing with some serious donors, season ticket holders, staff members, administrators, Rupp Arena and City/County employees, recruits, their families and/or coaches, and “special guests” and their allotment. Keep trying, however, and follow EarlyBird’s advice above.

    That’s funny



  46. JCatfan
    8:55 am October 1, 2011 Permalink

    What’s funny, LOL? My point was that there isn’t anywhere near 4,000-6,000 lowers left at 7AM. According to Hosed (4k-6k lowers left), there may be anywhere from 18,000-20,000 total available tickets after the campers get their share–and the last few years will tell you that, quite unfortunately, even some unlucky campers have received uppers. Please elaborate on what is funny….
