    Rumor has it that they gave 500 tickets away to high schools. Anyone know if that is true?

    • Anon says:

      Make that 5000 tickets. I hear the event was not close to sold out.

      • uomatters says:

        ASUO pays about $1.6M to the athletic department for tickets (including football). I’m guessing the AD is not going to want to admit they give them away free to HS kids!

    who paid for all those the bobbleheads? UO Development, or the DAF?

  3. Did it work? says:

    So, what was the attendance?

  4. Theodor Geissel says:

    Where can I get one?

    Nicely done.

    Bought it on my way home from the office, from one of the underwhelmed undergrads leaving the game at halftime.

  8. phil her up? says:

    Did you really Phil her up? I am so jelly, I just couldn’t get myself to support a sellout not even for the classic bobble head. Perhaps you could use it as an ultimate kickstarter campaign gift. A UOM signed Phil bobble head raffled of for, a successful goal of say $200 Million with all the proceeds going to academic scholarships, perhaps with a SAIL tie in? I am sure Phil would approve afterall job one is to do the punters dirty, er, take advantage of former students, er, wait what is job one for a public university?
