Not sure how they can run it in line with charitable raffle laws, but I would gladly come up with 100 bucks to get into a 50/50 pot worth $50k or buy $300.00 worth of $30.00 lottery tickets if some of the money was earmarked for NIL funds. Have a corporate donor cough up a big ticket item. The store was a start, now raise the bar a bit.
    St. Jude's Children's Hospital raffles of a free new home in Wichita every year. And not some dump either.

    It will end up with some bankrupt Athletic Departments

    How were the prices for the tickets and SASO? At the very most, numbers stayed the same, right? I hope they wouldn’t be stupid enough to raise prices.
    Charter Guardian $4,000 Great seats and parking
    Tickets $625 x 4

    Going back to 2016-17 season both rates have stayed mostly static.

    This may be the only time I'm thankful for the stingy citizens of Wichita. #Resist

    $6500 for tix and saso.

    I know it used to be for a good cause (student athlete and all), but man at 2.5 hours of entertainment for each game, over a 30 game season, that comes out to the equivalent cost of about $87 for an individual's hour of entertainment, $43.50 for a group of 2 people, per hour. I'm not certain it's been all that entertaining the past couple of years, so you would deserve a prize, or at least a free hot dog and soda every game. Yikes.

    Timing is not optimal either. In the last month I begrudgingly shelled out $6500 for SASO and tix.

    For me, I'm just not giving out more cash, especially now.

    This is where I'm at. I'm pretty lukewarm on everything right now anyway. We just got slammed for SASO and tickets. Could I? Sure. Should I? Meh. I agree with JV. All this money talk sucks. These crackers are making me thirsty!

    You know what's not good? All this money money money talk. And there's the story of the one student athlete who didn't get his promised advance and is suing. I know it's the current norm, but, man, all this just makes me feel, blah.



    I don't know how this lasts. I'm just sick of the whole thing. Will college sports die?

    it's not good. I have no idea how they get this in front of people, but I'd never see it if I didn't see it on Shockernet.
