    Standing Room Only

    Anyone have any problems with this? I sat up there and it was a great atmosphere. It was a lot of fun to have a lot of students around and most of the "older" people like me up there were the type that like to stand and yell our ***** off like crazy the whole game anyway.
    Wonder if this could become a tradition and that section could become something like the bleacher bums at Wrigley?
    Need something to call it- Riff Rafters Maybe? I don't know. Great atmosphere all-around. You could tell we were a fanbase that was hungry again to taste basketball postseason. I haven't seen our crowd be that into every possession from late in the first half through the rest of the game for a long time.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Re: Standing Room Only

    I did notice ushers walking around asking if empty seats were taken. I think they were trying to get people off of the concourse

    Re: Standing Room Only

    The AD wants people buying season tics. This won't be a regular thing because our cheapskate fans would buy as many of these as the sold instead of single game or season seats.

    Us cheapskate fans who buy $99 season tickets are probably the most loyal fans in Hilton. The corners up top are consistently full. We may be cheap, but that also means that when we buy tickets, we use them! I didn't miss a single game this year, so I definitely got my money's worth. I think we need to sell more of the cheap season tickets to keep the top consistently full.

    Re: Standing Room Only

    I got one for my wife and she had a great time. We were a little nervous about if they had oversold them but it looks like they had the perfect number sold.

    Re: Standing Room Only

    I loved the atmosphere last night. For those who have never experienced it THAT was actually what Hilton Magic sounds like. Hopefully we have boost in season tickets from this season and I bet that after as successful that promotion was either the students are going to lose some of those seats that they couldn't fill all season or you are going to see some more promotions like that for the sold out games. I noticed right before tip off Pollard was looking up at that area with a big smile on his face, they know they can fill every seat in Hilton and I bet they find a way to make games like last night happen more often.

    Re:Standing Room Only

    This year was huge for our basketball program and ticket sells. No doubt things will be done to make sure every seat is
    Full next year, and overselling with standing only.

    Re: Standing Room Only

    I think next season bball and football are going to be huge for tickets. There are going to be a ton of season tickets sold.

    Re: Standing Room Only

    So can we stop blaming cyclone alley and start blaming the students being lazy for bad attendance now? They showed last night what happens when they all show up.

    Re: Standing Room Only

    We bought 3 and they worked out great, they should do that for every game.

    Re: Standing Room Only

    One of the managers told me he talked to JP at halftime and he said if they had sold 10 more SRO tickets, those people wouldn't have had seats. Good job AD selling the perfect amount of SRO tickets to fill the seats!

    Re: Standing Room Only

    I was impressed by how they filled it and didn't oversell them. It was a great atmosphere last night.

    Good job JP and AD, expect a thank card in the mail.

    Isn't that kind of the definition of standing room only tickets? To not have seats. Sorry just struck me as funny!

    Re: Standing Room Only

    Everybody in those sections actually had a seat right? Was it just standing room only because they were sitting behind students?
