Hot Tickets Crimes, Championships and Big Time Sports at the University of Kansas

by H. George Frederickson

Hot Tickets Crimes, Championships and Big Time Sports at the University of Kansas Synopsis

In 2010, University of Kansas officials were shocked to learn that the FBI and IRS were on campus investigating Rodney Jones, former head of the Athletics Ticket Office, for stealing Jayhawks basketball tickets and selling them to brokers. Investigators found that for more than five years Jones and a small ring of university officials had conspired to loot the university of $2 million in tickets, reselling them for $3-5 million. In what was perhaps the biggest scandal in college sports history, all seven members of the Kansas Ticket Gang plead guilty to RICO Act indictments. Five went to prison-two were given probation for turning state's evidence.
