For you season ticket holders out there .. you should have received a letter describing the new process for re-seating. This year, while an open house will be held at the Bradley Center, actual seat selection will occur at the Al McGuire Center, from June 18th-July 1st.
All sorts of information can be found here.
This year, MU has released a nice document detailing the number of "points" you need for the lower, middle, and upper rows of each section. Read the chart at your own peril. For anyone who isn't a multi-decade season ticket holder, it's pretty depressing how many more points you need to improve your view!
It's amazing to think how hard it is to move into any of the 10 center sections. Say an MU couple (20 points) have had tickets for 10 years, (20 points) and donates $250/year (10 points + 10 conseq. points). Those 60 points will get you a corner, which is probably where you've been for the past decade anyhow. After 20 years, you'll sneak into the prime sections, in row W-Z. -- Just goes to show how enduring and charitable the center seat people are.
Note to MU: Forget cheerleaders throwing t-shirts, fleeces, mini-balls into the crowd. Throw "point" certificates! And .. everyone who goes to the Morgan State type game gets one bonus point (if they are wearing gold).
And how about some bonus points for working at Cracked Sidewalks!
