Finally, it is here. Football is back, the first game week of the season is upon us. Treasure these next three months because they promise to fly by, they always do. Its the nature of the things that we like the best, they never last as long as they should.
This is becoming par for the course, but it is still rather impressive considering that the vast majority of students aren't on campus yet. The last estimate I saw for remaining tickets was under a thousand, and that was done by someone on a message board who went on the select a seat website and counted. Either way this is looking like a shoe in to be the best attended noon kickoff in years, at least in Nippert. The last time Nippert sold out for a noon kick was against Illinois in 2009, a game the Bearcats dominated from the start. Just 9 days until game time.
