If you didn’t renew your season tickets this past year, odds are you may have received a few pieces of mail from the ticket office this week. Check out these pictures from KSR reader Matt McKenzie, who got eight letters from the ticket office urging him to renew. Matt writes:
“To make a long story short my wife and I were season ticket holders for about 10 years. We had 6 tickets under our name 4 for us and 2 for a friend. For several reasons, mainly frustrations with Joker and starting a family, we only bought the 2 tickets for our friend last year. (Don’t get me wrong I still watched or listened to every game.) This year our friend bought her own tickets and even though I am super excited about Stoops and this season, we decided not to renew because we have a newborn.
Well, tonight when I got home from work, I had 8 letters from the ticket office trying to RECRUIT us back to being season ticket holders. Each one is signed by at least 5 different people from the ticket office and other offices at Nutter. I’m sure they were copies, but it worked. It really got me excited. For a minute, I felt like Drew Baker or one of the other recruits that got hundreds of letters from the coaching staff. I just wanted to let the ticket office know ‘Job Well Done!'”
After seeing this post, a UK spokesman confirmed to me that each card was individually signed by staff members throughout the athletics department, including all of the sports team coaches and staff.
Stoops gets it.
