    Drake vs Creighton

    Went to this game last night. I have to say i think their fans are alot better than ours. They are into the game the from start to finish. Its load for the amount of people in the crowd. Their student section was great. They do alot of cool things and they had cardboard cut outs. And when there was a lot of people heckling the refs. I am surprised the atmosphere at the Knapp is better than Hilton.

    Uhhh, no it isn't. Just because YOU say it is doesn't make it so. I have been to plenty of games at the Knapp, and I never left impressed. Never. Their fans, if they show up at all, are in no way "better" than any Cyclone fan, dead or alive.

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    Cyclone fans are pretty loyal fans. They travel well and cheer no matter how crappy teams are. Look at Iowa, their house is pretty empty every game except ISU game. Creighton and UNI are like Iowa State playing against Iowa for Drake. Ofcourse Knapp is filled. Hilton was near full when we played against Iowa and KU and had really good atmosphere.

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    I heard Drake is looking for a few more fans. Maybe you should apply.

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    I enjoy going to games at the Knapp Center. However, I have been to games there when the crown is non-existent and others where they are going strong. When their student section gets going, it make for a nice atmosphere. Drake basketball at the Knapp center is a better experience when ISU, Iowa, UNI, or creighton come than it is for Evansville, Illinois State etc. To say it is better than Hilton.....I will disagree b/c I have heard Hilton rocking for the Nebraskas and lower teams, just as they do for KU, OU, and Iowa.

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    They were playing Creighton. It's like us hosting KU. That's usually when the crowd is at it's best. Plus they had a huge win against UNI not long ago, so there is a little momentum. I guarantee the games before the UNI game were terrible.

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    I went to the mcdermott memorial last night at the knapp center also, took my grandson with me, since I was invited by Sandy...


    I thought the atmosphere was pretty good and I enjoyed the students and their chants....ISU students need to do chants more often to kill the dead space when the teams arent actually playing B-Ball.


    And YES as usual greg mcdermott found a way to LOSE another game that he (greg) should have won....


    Go Cyclones beat the stuffings out of the "Cheating Jayhawks"...remember kevin bell folks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    What's the Drake gym hold, 3,000? Seriously Sammy it's a lot easier to get noisy in a smaller venue. I don't want to insult Drake, but you just insulted Cyclone fans on our board.

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    The more interesting thing is that Creighton found a way to blow another game and one that should have been an easy win. They now sit at 15-11 on the year... McDoormat's typical cap on wins and their statistical ranks are par for the course.

    Does this sound like McDoormat Ball....

    Points per game: 67.5 National Rank: 231st
    Rebounds per game: 35.3 National Rank: 162nd
    Assists per game: 13.8 National Rank: 124th

    Some things never change.

    Thanks again Creighton.

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    I've been to several Drake games this year. Their team is OK; no better. Rice will be a very good player for them. I like the Knapp and the environment. Better than Hilton? No freaking way.

    Re: Drake vs Creighton

    I was there last night too. Walked in about a minute before tip and walked up to front row behind the basket. It's basically a high school gym so of course its loud, and they played a good game last night. To say they are better than Hilton no way!!! They may have had a hundred students in a small area behind 1 basket. And the cartoon cut outs? What were they suppose to represent? Best cheers of the night Your Grounded!! when Dougy went to the bench and Daddy's boy! when he missed what would have been the game tying shot at the end.
