does anyone find it weird that the Duke vs GT game is the late game on the East coast, so they start at 9pm. I would think a 7pm game for them and an 8pm game for us would make alot of sense, guess not.
I was not turning this into a bash thread, this is reasonable criticism. Here's my stance on the fan attendance: you go to games and root for your team in good times and in bad. I don't think people that will only show up when the team is good are very loyal or good fans. Just as our fight song says "loyal sons forever true..." saying you'll only attend games when we are good is not very loyal. I know people will show up when we get better but I think the people that are fair weather like that are crappy fans. Another thing, people complain about mediocrity, you do realize that ticket sales is a big part of what funds the programs right? Putting butts in the seats helps out the athletic budget which we all know is one of the smaller ones in the Big 12. Where do you think some of the funds for all these renevations are coming from?
Another thing, put yourselves in the athletes shoes for a moment. They play hard regardless and "show up" in a sense for every game. They don't pick and chose when to play regardless who we are playing against or how good or bad the team is and neither should our fans. If you buy a season ticket, unless something completely out of your control comes up and you can't get to a game you or someone that will use your ticket should be there else why did you buy that ticket in the first place?
Seems like everyone here likes to complain about this and that and how come we are as good as everyone wants us to be. Do your part and support these teams win or lose and when they do start winning I will bet you that all those times you watched us take a beating will feel worth the wait. I guess I have a lot of pride and don't like fair weather fan excuses. I may not buy the more expensive season tickets or donate at higher levels like some of you here do but I still make an effort to get to every football and men's basketball game I possibly can. I also think students should have far less reasons to miss a game than the rest of us do considering they live minutes from Hilton and not many have class at night. I used to make time to go to games in college even if it meant staying up later to do homework and study. I probably even missed some night classes and literally ran across campus from an exam after I finished it just to make part of a game. I also rarely missed a women's game back then too, but unfortunately I don't have the time or money to commit to both basketball teams these days.
I completely agree and will be there tonight cheering right along with you like I have been all season long.
P.S. I just didn't agree with complaining about tonight's attendance before the game had even taken place.
I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.
Hopefully we win tonight, this would be a HUGE win for this team and for coach McD. --- They definitely both deserve it thats for sure!! I maybe just maybe it will shut up some of the Jayhawk fans that i have to work with everyday
I dont understand why people are complaining about the crowd so much, compared to a lot of teams like texas tech and iowa we have enormous crowds, if we were one of those schools then we should start complaining
