If we can't draw a great crowd to three very winnable games for a very low price, we'll never pack the hall again...

Thanks Dan! I couldn't make the Penn State or Nebraska games due to scheduling conflicts, but I'll be sure to get to Purdue if I only have to pay $15.

Would love to go but decided I'm bad luck after going to the NW, Minn, Mich and Wis games.

Well, they're trying to sell tickets for a Penn State basketball game, and they can use the Photo of the Year No problem there

Must be a slow day in the news. A real big stretch connecting those dots.

God I hate the media. If only we had the freedom to punch these people in the face.

Clearly somebody tipped these websites off; it's not like the editor of Deadspin gets e-mails from the U of I ticket office. Oh well. It is what it is...that picture is adorable.

Um, because it's an adorable picture of John Groce and his son, whom he loves, and today is about celebrating love? It's a good idea because it's a great photo; child abuse is the farthest thing from my mind when I see this ad. It's ridiculous that multiple media outlets have blown up about this.

If it were a random kid, the media would have a point, but come on, it's his son. A lot of fathers and sons go to basketball games together, hence the "no matter who's your valentine" quote.

I see a non issue here.

It's pretty innocent, I mean it's a great pic of father and son enjoying a pretty rare moment on the court.

The PSU reference is unfortunate but you really have to have a pretty dirty mind to go there with this whole connection (or have nothing better to do).

I agree it's an adorable photo but still not the picture you pick to place in this exact promo IMO. Bad choice.

It is unfortunate that people will tak it the wrong way and it's also unfortunate we live in a real world of sick people and events that make people react the way they do one some things. It is what it is.

Well since they were trying to play up the "love" angle of the ad, what picture would you have chosen? Don't tell me....this one. :laugh:
