Default i'm going to the #14 Texas A&M Men's Basketball Opener

Woot! Woot!

We are playing Emporia State. We do a lottery system here so people are chosen at random and I got chosen.

The game is this thursday at 7pm. Should be an ass whooping.

You are kidding me, a lottery system to pull college sports tickets?!?!?!? That must be another one of those A&M innovations.

It sux for the more hardcore fans who stay up all night and camp out but its good for the people (like myself) who cant do that b/c they have hard majors and cant afford to miss class and want to sleep.

It was a compromise but its weighted on a points system.

Quote:
* +1 point for students who register, are NOT selected, but admitted as a walk-up.
* +1 point for students who register, are NOT selected, and don't attend as walk-up.
* +1 point for students who register, accept admittance, and attend.
* 0 points for students who do not register.
* -1 points for students who register, are selected and decline ticket.
* -1 point for students who register, are selected, and Do NOT decline admission by deadline, and do not attend.
* -2 points for students who register, are selected, accept admission, and do not attend.

Those are pretty much the rules. The more points you have...the better odds of you getting a ticket. Right now I have 1.

I probably wont be registereing for the next lottery because I have a class conflict. Hopefully I will attend enough pre-conference games to get into all of the conference games.

BTW I am going to come down Austin (I think) for the game. Should be fun.

They either did this at university of arizona or still do it. Not too bad of an idea.

At Illinois it's strictly a points system, based on how many credit hours you've completed and how many times you've had tickets in the past.

Because of work, and the fact I could get tickets to pretty much any game I wanted already (there weren't many big games those first two years I didn't attend...I just didn't want to commit to season tickets either year when I wasn't sure how often I'd be able to use them), I didn't actually have season tickets until my junior and senior (the 37-2 season) years.

That's just general student tickets though....the Orange Krush student section is an entirely different thing.

This system IS unfair to junior/seniors. Juniors and seniors dont get to pick first like they do in football.

Aggies won 82-68 but they didnt play that well. IF they had played an average team, they may have gotten beat. There was some upside though. DeAndre Jordan, our new recruit, did everything well except make FTs. Josh Carter played well too.

Our defense needs to get better at defending the three. They had too many open threes. And on offense, we didnt feed the ball as much to jones and jordan as much as we shouldve in the first half.

...It's Acie Law.

I am happy for him that he made it into the NBA. Before last season started, it was a question mark if he was actually going to make it there and he did.

hes not overrated...but when Texas played A&M the second time around, durant was nowhere to be found in overtime.

He's taking all those shots because he has the freedom to do so and hes young.
