Haven’t seen the email for the FB season ticket code. They must have read my comments on the two new coaching hires.
Went and looked at mine and I didn’t get one either. I got an email for the Football signing day event, the weekly athletic department email, and CKS’s email previewing the game. None of them had a promo code though.
Those are exactly what I’ve gotten. Checking with my Football group. I’m going to the game either way.
Ugh do not start Zanna. Guy fouls all the time we are a rhythm team.
Things trending the right direction. Keep it up now!
28-18 Coogs with about 11 minutes left in the first half.
18-15 Tulsa over Rob Gray with about 11 minutes left in the first half.
He is absolutely on fire!
Defense playing well. Harris has had some good minutes down low. Team rebounding well again. Coogs know how to break down that Tulsa zone no problem they better switch back to man. Gettys color commentating for ESPNU tonight.
