    I'm sure many among us are not overly thrilled about the NIT. However, there is a way to make this a positive experience. Tickets for the Savannah State game are ten dollars and seating is general admission. Here's my idea. This is a wonderful opportunity to get some young folks who might not normally be in a position to take in a UT game from the good seats into the building for a night of hoops. My proposal is simple. Each member of the UT cyber community who is in a position to do so should buy a couple of tickets and donate them to a group like the Boys and Girls Club or Big Brothers/Big Sisters. Watching UT play Savannah State on a Tuesday night may not seem like a big deal to those of us who are fortunate enough to attend regularly, but I bet it would be pretty special to some young folks who rarely, if ever, get to see the Big Orange live. Just a thought.

    I like this idea. Is there a way to purchase and donate online if we are far from Knoxville?

    It would probably require a call to both the UT ticket office and the Boys and Girls Club, but I know you can buy tickets and tell UT's will call that someone else will be picking them up. I'm certain the ticket office would be glad to help. They'll be desperately trying to move tickets for this one.

    I don't mind at all. You are wise not to attach my name to it. That would get it deleted in 2.3 seconds over there.

    I don't doubt it. "Good cause? Who gives a shit? torch it because hatvol posted it." They're so stupid over there, but the idea will still reach a lot more people now that it is posted over there. In the end, that's what's important.

    Maybe someone can post the logistics so we can do this. Maybe if enough donate as 8th Maxim it will get some mention.
