I made the mistake of waiting too long to try to buy tickets to the KU-Texas A&M game March 8 in College Station.

I'm used to watching KU play on the road at the University of Colorado, where attendance typically is woeful. I've never had any trouble getting tickets to watch KU trounce CU.

Of course, the Aggies are a much better team than the Buffaloes. Texas A&M even has a new coach, Mark Turgeon, who was an overachiever on KU's basketball team in the 1980s. Turgeon also is a fellow Topekan, although our paths never crossed.

I was hoping to take my 10-year-old son for a drive to College Station to see the two top-rated teams tangle. Anyone know an Aggie fan willing to part with two tickets for a reasonable price? Or anyone have experience with buying tickets from scalpers outside Reed Arena? I imagine these will be difficult tickets to get.

Well, at least the game will be on TV. The next challenge will be Final Four tickets in San Antonio when KU gets there. Yes, we Jayhawk fans have big expectations. Always.

Unfortunately, we don't plan ahead enough. If I'm reading this page correctly, I had to put in my ticket application last year for the Final Four. Argh.
