Latest on the OU Bombing

According to newsok.com:

University spokeswoman Catherine Bishop said OU officials have reviewed their ticket records and determined that Hinrichs did not buy a football ticket from any university outlet.
She said university officials have heard nothing to indicate Hinrichs attempted to buy a ticket from one of the fans selling tickets outside the stadium.
The FBI has reviewed surveillance tapes taken by cameras around the stadium. OU President David Boren said Tuesday that, so far, agents have found nothing to indicate Hinrichs tried to enter.

This doesn't disprove the terror angle, but is reason to be patient and wait for more facts.

You're correct, it doesn't prove anything one way or another...he could have purchased a ticket with cash, of course, and unless the university requires some sort of ID or other verification just to buy a football ticket, his identity would not be provided (perhaps someone familiar with OU practices could help here). Or, probably less likely, someone could have given him a ticket.

You show the student ID to buy tickets if you want to get them at the (much cheaper) student price.

My son has student tickets for the football games. It is first come first serve, for students, so there is no assigned seating. My son sold his ticket to another student for the second game. It is very easy to get tickets. This just proves that Henrichs was not "on record" as a ticket holder. Also, if the school we play turns back tickets, they are on sale at the ticket office before the game. This happens all the time. There would be no record of the sale if the person paid cash.
