Spring game ticket update: 27,000 distritubuted


(UK Athletics)

As of this morning, 27,000 tickets have been distributed to the football spring game, breaking Mark Stoops’ Day 1 goal of 25,000. It also means the previous record of 20,700, set back in 1987, is pretty much doomed.

If you still haven’t gotten your tickets, head on over to Ticketmaster.com and use the promo code LOYALTY.

Stooooooooooops.

    Is there any advantage to setting it up the way they did, so people can reserve tons of tickets each the first day, many of which they will not use. Why not just make it fist come first serve at the Stadium? I think it is great that the turnout will be high, just questioning the way they have this set up…seems like it may discourage people to come that could not reserve good seats.

    Is the Spring Game on Television, or even streamed online?

    Is LOYALTY an annual decision?

    As I read a few comments, I can see some of you folks are aware of the world outside this blog’s propaganda.

    Divide 27,000 by 8. (Hint: 3,375)

    #13 regardless of the numbers thrown out there, the point is, people are getting excited for UK football and that is what Stoops wants.

    How many seats are in the bottom half of the stadium?

    8) If Cal and Crean weren’t buddies (assuming they still are after the series fell apart), I’d say Cal should tell all his players to flop simultaneously just to prove a point.
