True, but we have a history of being better than this with our crowds. I'd say I have not missed too many BB games since 1998 which was my freshman year in college and went to a few games from time to time before then that weren't necessarily marquee games either and in that time frame we've had a few rough seasons mixed in there but the crowds still seem better than they have the last 3 seasons or so. I have not heard Hilton rocking nearly as loud as it has in the past, we are kidding ourselves if we truely believe that Hilton Magic hasn't suffered at least a little lately.Quote:
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
Can we get through one home game without ******** about the crowd? Please? Our home crowds have been better than the majority of the crowds we've played in front of in other Big XII arenas, and we're in freaking 11th place.
No matter how many people are there, if this is any kind of a basketball game, the crowd is going to be really loud. If that can't get your adrenaline going, then you might as well stay home anyway.
Threads like these are lame...
Should CA storm the court like this tonight? :yes:

The players also play the entire game. They can't choose to leave because we aren't playing well, or leave when we have the game all bagged up because they want to beat traffic home. Stay the entire game, and show your appreciation for their hard work, rather than showing them your backside as you are scurrying to get home. You're going to be sitting for 20 minutes in the cold parking lot anyways, whats 2 more minutes in a warm building?Quote:
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.
Everyone needs to quit yelling at each other and just start yelling at the game insted. It'll make everything betterQuote:
Seems like everyone here likes to complain about this and that and how come we are as good as everyone wants us to be.
Now STFU and save it for Kansas!
Ok, last peep on this cuz it just thought of this. The whole "people will show up if we are winning" thing again... well you do realized playing in front of a packed house that is loud nearly every game is a big recruiting tool. I'd love it if even for a NW Podunk Tech State kind of game we would not be scared to have recruits there in fear that a smaller crowd would not look good. Wouldn't it be great to tell a potential recruit "it's always like this no matter who we are playing."
So the attendance and crowd does factor into the success of the program some because you never know if that 1 recruiting visit a kid makes that his impression of a home game atmosphere might weigh into his decision. I'm sure that is 1 factor that is fairly important in the decision. If you are a fairly good recruit you want to play in front of lots of people and get exposure.
