You mean KSU band wagon fans??? Nebraska's tickets have been sold out since 1962, my grandpa bought his first season tickets tickets in 1959, and i am still sitting in the same seats today.
IF KSU HAS SUCH GREAT FANS WHY ARENT THIER GAMES SOLD OUT?????????????????? Hell it was friday afternoon and i have 2 different friends that got phone calls about tickets to go to the KU vs. KSU game last week, that dont happen in Nebraska, its a privilage to go, not just something you can walk into.
Congrats on keeping your tickets for 50 years. You've seen lots of good football over the years. I was one of those KSU fans in the 80's. I recall watching games with NO ONE sitting in the north or south end zone, except when the Corn came to town and the place would fill up. Nice folks, (we always got along with the land grant universities - still do) and we'd get whupped by the Corn every time.
Fast forward to 2012....yep, it's a great atmosphere. You might check also your facts, the home games ARE sold out. Yes, when extra tickets pop up, we call our friends. If I wanted to experience the "privelage to go" (your words, not mine) to your precious Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, a quick visit to the likes of Stubhub, Ticketmaster, Ticketsforless, etc, indicate what the Hucksters do with their excess tickets, and they ain't giving them to their friends. Yes, you could "walk into" the place with at least 1,000 of your closest friends if you have a big enough pile of cash. Not sure how many of your tickets wind up in the hands of scalpers, but it's a bunch.
