    they need to stop pretending they are even putting them online.
    I refreshed the page every 2 seconds from 6:50am until they went active @ 7:00am just to be safe. There is no way more than a couple people could have been faster.

    Bogus.

    15: yes they can be. once “x” amount of people successfully clear the autocaptcha they consider all tickets held. They then have about 10 minutes to complete the purchase from there. So when they say all tickets sold out in “10 minutes” that’s what they will mean

    Ticketmaster would be fine searching for tickets if you didnt have to keep typing in the stupid letters and numbers everytime…

    Still says currently working on request…Been doing this for 6-7 years. Last year was first year that I didn’t get any. A few years ago, they showed up around 8:30am



  31. Ticketmaster
    7:14 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    SUX!!! Why did they go 4 per this year anyways?? Makes it tougher for those who can’t camp to get tickets. Guess they want us all to camp so they can say, look at our crazy fans. Oh well, guess I went to my first & last Cal’s first season.

    Tried getting 2 tickets on ticketmaster this morning, no luck. Went back in and tried 1 single ticket and was able to get section 25 row K. I am going by myself but at least I will be there.

    This is a joke you gotta be kidding me 7 am on the dot no tickets on ticketmaster Fans screwed over once again. UK should realise some people have to work and cant camp out. Another let down for the fans.

    Well the first craigslist ad is up. Let’s all blow this guys email address up with furious rants and name calling!!! http://lexington.craigslist.org/tix/3288453639.html

    Started trying at 7AM on the money . . . nothing. What’s the next best option? Craigslist?

    7:22 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    For all those complaining…get a better internet provider or learn to type faster. 4 friends and I all were able to get tickets of line this morning.



  41. BUCats

    Something seems wrong with Ticketmaster. Maybe they only let 200 go out instead of 20k

  44. Entitled Much?
    7:24 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    I didn’t get tickets, I am also not feeling screwed over or slighted because I now these seats were not OWED to me. I played the odds and lost. It’s like screaming at a lottery salesman because you don’t get jackpots on every ticket

    @SMH Must be operator error then.

    40. Even though your a troll – I hope you realize how much the internet provider has to do with this…
    Even if someone’s latency was 40-50ms higher, your still talking under a second.

    Tard.

    40 this is modern day most of us have cable modems, that’s not the problem. You & your friends got lucky. Congrats. Now get wealthy off all us cry babies.

    I was in a line of 1 at Kroger’s tickemaster and did not get any.



  52. And now some good news!

    F the campers haha its so impossible to get tickets when competing with the rest of bbn..oh well I’ll just watch online



  54. Bluefuror
    7:31 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    @Cable guy, I agree that most have cable modems but most also pay for the lowest speed available, so @g1 there is more than just a second difference when you are talking 10mbs vs 50mbs



  55. SMH
    7:32 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    Bluefuror the tard the douchebag and the troll.



  56. Wrong again
    7:33 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    54.
    Your getting throughput confused with latency.
    Those people could send much more data quickly, however, it wouldn’t affect their LATENCY.
    Considering the refreshing of that website is almost nothing, your exclusively dealing with latency here, meaning anyone with broadband in the area will be very close…



  57. Bluefuror
    7:34 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    @SMH sounds like an awesome band name

    Bluefuror you look like Kathy Griffin with no makeup.



  59. Bluefuror
    7:39 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    @56 I’m not confusing the 2 because they go hand in hand…my point was simply that Latency depends on the speed of the transmission medium ie. Cable, DSL, Satellite etc. and not all UK fans live in areas serviced by the fastest mediums of transmission.

    Got four tickets on ticketmaster… Section 11 row O. First time I’ve ever gotten through online and I get great seats. Really sorry to those who couldn’t… But I’ve been in your position every year til now.



  61. HerpDerp
    7:40 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    Was able to secure 2 at about 7:18.

    Sorry to those who weren’t. The system did seem to be very different from previous years though. I had been able to get lowers right away every year until now.

    Also sorry for having to deal with a guy like Bluefuror. The world will smack him down one way or another.

    Go Cats!

    The joke is on all these scalpers who are trying to sale their tickets, you can’t print the tickets for another week.

    64. It’s not a problem on stubhub. You can just put you won’t have tickets in hand until such & such date.



  65. DaveUK
    7:59 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    Just got 4 tix at 7:56am so keep trying. Ticketmaster is famous for this – none available for an hour then a batch becomes available randomly. Could be cancellation of the duplicate orders perhaps.



  66. Ticketmaster
    8:09 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    Just got two in section 234 Row BB seats 8 & 9 @ 8:00 am.



  67. FINALLY!
    8:09 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    Got 4 at 8:06…I don’t know what the problem is with the system but it is definitely worth it to keep trying BBN!

    This is the third year in a row I’ve gotten the ticketmaster shaft. But this year I got to do it w/ strep throat. A poorly worded, unfortunately captcha-free e-mail has been sent to the UK ticket office.



  69. Catfan
    8:22 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    They had arm bands available from yesterday afternooon till 7:00 am this morning. All you had to do is walk into the Ticket office and they gave you your wristband and control card to get tickets. You did not have to camp out all week. You could have arrived before 7:00 and would have got tickets. Put the extra effort into it next year and don’t blame others or watch it on TV. Some our KY fans our the biggest crybabies. If you want a ticket show up at madness or expect a small chance of getting tickets to madness.



  70. Willis talkin bout..
    8:25 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    You all keep trying.. just got two tickets on Ticketmaster.com

    Some have jobs that keep them from allowing them do do that along with others that live hours and states away. I can see their frustration with ticketmaster

    I have been trying for two hours with out any luck. Don’t believe you guys who say you are getting tickets. I quit.



  73. tryagian
    9:14 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    idk why but I had tried for about an hour on the laptop to get tickets then figured what the heck and tried on my iphone and was able to get 4 tickets.

    If there are still people around, how about a huge group pic of “Thumbs Up for Lane Goodwin”?



  75. close but no cigar
    11:04 am September 22, 2012 Permalink

    60. They don’t go hand in hand in the slightest.
    Latency depends on routing path as well as the medium. The medium itself is usually the same for anyone in the city with broadband.

    I’d say a very high percentage of people who were up this morning were in Lexington, all using Insight ( or TWC ) now. All same medium, all same path…
