Retired…

Do the students actually buy tickets ?
Or are they given to them ( for free )
as some sort of package?

And … obviously… the point is that they
Don’t come to the games.
They buy them.

What is a farce?
MU has X number of student tickets for sale.
They all sold…..therefore a sellout.
This doesn’t mean that every student STH will ho to every game.
But guess what? They still sold out their f the alloted student tickets.
Not a farce.
Ho to game, 4ever will like.....
Goal is National Championship

Don't forget the athletic department had also canceled the The Blue & Gold Classic, the nation's third-longest running regular-season men's basketball tournament. Nothing is sacred to them.

I don't think a single student will miss madness. When midnight madnesses went out of favor 10 years ago, they should have stopped this event.

I agree.  My son is there now and doesn’t care and he is a big fan of the team. 

I do think if they have any type of scrimmage/madness/picnic in the future, parents weekend would be best.  I think that would be a no brainer.  Mid afternoon, still warm outside, free food. Tons of activity around campus.  People would spend an hour checking the teams out.  Make if part of the fabric of the University for the students and the parents.

I think that would be a much better event.

This is a great idea.

One of the things I liked about the old Madness events was at the end when the players would all sit behind long tables and would sign the team posters and say "hi" to the fans.  I still have some of these that were signed by DWade, JFB, DJO, Diener, Novak, all 3 Amigos, etc.  If autographs aren't cool anymore, they could work out selfie stations where you could take a photo with the players.
The shaka sign, sometimes known as "hang loose", is a gesture of friendly intent often associated with Hawaii and surf culture.

I like the Creighton half court shot for a semester's tuition is a great idea to excite students, but maybe have a shooting contest instead to guarantee a winner.
Why won't Kur Kuath answer my DMs?

They’d still do this; it just would cost you $500 per autograph
