    Senior Night

    Please be in your seat early Wednesday night. It seems like every year there aren't many people there for the ceremony. It's a special night. At the Nebraska game the stands were pretty empty 10 minutes before the game. LET'S GO CYCLONES!!

    Re: Senior Night

    There has hardly been a ceremony the last few years.

    I've seen Senior Night for volleyball: video package for every player, framed jersey, flowers, big production.

    I've seen Senior Night at Nebraska for MBB: highlights for every single player, framed jersey, big production.

    I've seen 3 straight Senior Nights here, and they've been pathetic. "Here's a senior." Young man waves. That is about it. We really need to do something special with this thing, and especially for the only 4-year player we've seen in a long, long time.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Yes.....leave EARLY!! Let's all remember the last time we were able to honor a 4 year player---that was Rahshon Clark in 2006. The time before that? Probably Jake Sullivan. That's 3 4 year players in probably 7 years.

    We can do our part to make it special just by being there.

    I've done my part every time. What I'm saying is that we need to recognize these guys with a program that they deserve.

    Re: Senior Night

    I've always enjoyed the wbb senior night ceremony. After the game each senior give's a speech threw the PA system to thank everyone and share there favorite memories as a cyclone. I would like to see the men switch over to something like this.

    Maybe we need to get Jeff out there to create more excitement. We could have Cy do his dance routines. We could have free walking tacos for the first 300 people in the place. We could do build a burger pre game.

    All kidding aside, the three seniors have been through some tough times and need our support.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    I agree. I think the framed jerseys is a great idea. I'm not sure if the men would really be interested in giving speeches like the women.

    The framed jerseys would be cool. Also I know the kansas men do the same type of thing as our women and they have a had a lot of succes with it.

    Nice enthusiasm, but Rashon was only 3 years ago (yes it seems like much longer) in 2008. But yes DG deserves perhaps the biggest applause of all time at Hilton for being the lone survivor all the way through of McDump.

    Re: Senior Night

    I think the 6:30 tip-off will hinder fans being there early.
