Got my season ticket renewal package from the KU ticket office for BB. I am pretty sure we will not have in-person games this year unless there is a miracle on the vaccine front. Even if the games are held, with full audience, at my age, I am not sure I will want to attend. I have attended KU games from 1973-1982 and from 1984-present.

Question, would you order tickets for this coming year and break the string? If I do and the season is cancelled or if games are played to an empty AFH, would the Athletic Department, refund the cost of the tickets? I know, they might even ask us to donate the cost to help keep the Department solvent.

My thoughts! I plan to order tickets and donate, if needed, the proceeds if asked.

What would you do?

GIVEN: I am also in the "senior citizen" category, and also have various health issues beyond age to consider.

1. IF keeping my place in the season ticket queue for the following season will be negatively affected by not buying for the upcoming season, I would buy. This may not be an issue as I understand season ticket sales have been down the past few years, but if it is any part of the offering priority scheme currently in place, I'd buy them.

2. ASSUMING (I know, I know) that the answer to the first postulate has me buy the season ticket package, my subsequent actions hinge on two other factors -- vaccine availability and "season on with fans in" AFH.

2A. Vaccine available? No brainer, get the shot and attend.

2B. Since according to the Pros from Dover 2a is highly unlikely, will KU ok "fans in" if there is a season?

2B1. If there is a season and KU allows "fans in" despite no vaccine, I could attend, but wouldn't.
2B1a. I would arrange with Boys&Girls Club of Lawrence for kids to be able to attend, or
2B1b. Ask KU to document the money as a donation to the Williams Fund if 2B1a wasn't possible.

2B2. If there is not a season, or if there is and KU does not allow "fans in"...
2B2a. I would consider taking any refund offered, but...
2B2b. Most likely I would ask KU to document the money as a donation to the Williams Fund.

I’m with HE, I’d buy the tickets if there was any chance my spot in the queue would suffer.

Don't know what you should do at all. But, you should know, that I am envious of your ability to go to the games.

One day... One day, I am going to get back for a game. A real game. A conference game and not some exhibition game or OOC game against Our Sisters of the Blind or Narcoleptic U, but a real game.

I went to an exhibition game about 10 years ago. It was fun, but without relevance it was lacking.

One day.....

Anyone that comes in for a game from RCB has one free ticket on me. My daughters will just have to miss a game.

Hey, Wheaty, as a 25+ year careerist in the United States Army Medical Department I learned to always rely on the Pros from Dover!

Fingers crossed.

Hoping Mitch gets to play his RS Sr season.
