Associate athletic director, and former interim athletic director, Mike Waddell sent me an e-mail saying the university has sold out its 9,400 tickets. Twenty student buses and 13 alumni buses will leave at 9 a.m. for Detroit the day after Christmas. The Motor City Bowl is sending more tickets, too. This will be about double the fans that went to the MAC Championship game in the buses alone. Akron could really have a turnout that surprises bowl committees across the country.
Unfortunately, you might have to wait for your Fear the Roo gear. A large shipment is coming in on Jan. 1. Until then, you are probably S.O.L.
But I have good news: While buying Christmas presents for my lovely girlfriend in Barnes & Noble Bookstore in the Student Union, I saw some Fear Gear. So get to the Student Union Thursday and you might have a chance to score some Fear Gear for that special someone.
