Related question - how much does the campus life impact ones commitment to a school? Why do "campus" schools have better fan bases than "commuter" schools?
If you've ever been at one of these commuter schools you'd know in a heartbeat. Everything is disjointed and students don't have anything to rally around in terms of "school spirit/pride". I've seen a number of campuses around the country. I'm a homer, but ISU's campus is my favorite.
And I was at the UMKC game in KC last year. Definitely more ISU fans there. Pretty sure that a lot of the people cheering for UMKC really came to root against us more than for UMKC.
The only excitement in the game was those guys. Specially liked when the score was at 28 and chanted not 30. Kanga- rooooos then clanked a free throw. The whole crowd should have chanted KANGA-ROOOOS. Or called out a seat number to play with them.
I could see the guys from our seats. They were really funny, but without overdoing it. Kudos.
