    Game was definitely pretty full until the 4th.

    It bothers me like hell though when people leave early when we're winning a basketball game.
    Worry about yourself, numbnuts. Other people gotta do what they gotta do.

    Another moron shows his face. I don't get people telling people what to do with there money. Or there attendance. My guess is you are whining from a great distance. If you want to ***** move back to Ames and buy tickets. My guess is you don't buy buy season tixs which is understandable living in Houston.

    I think that they will delay the decision as long as possible (until loss of revenue is overwhelming and imminent) for two reasons. First, I've seen it before. Two, because it costs money to fire a coach, especially a head coach. I'm not suggesting that we are at that point yet, but the AD needs to see that the fuse is a short one.

    You seem to think that the AD will come to the decision on their own, without regard to pressure from the fans. If you agree that money drives such decisions, how can you not agree that expressing our dissatisfaction, including action by financial means, would make a difference?

    Again, if it makes you feel better, then go. I don't blame you. Just don't pretend that you are somehow on morally superior ground. It's my choice to stay away, in part, because I don't like where this is headed. I've seen it too many times and I want it to stop before we hit rock bottom. You might call it being a fair weather fan, but I see it as speaking as clearly and loudly as possible that I do not accept losing.

    The bottom line is that we should insist on winning and we should say so in the most effective manner. You are actually hurting our success by giving the appearance that we accept losing. I don't think there is even any room for the perception that losing is OK.

    This is such an absurd statement and you have it completely backwards.. The athletic department is not going to sit there and do nothing if a change is needed. Why do you think that is the case? If they just let the program go stagnant they will lose all the donors and that's where the real money comes from.
