    Student Section

    WIll probably get bashed for this, but our student section needs some "leaders"! Hilton Magic isnt just about showing up or cheering when only playing ranked teams or rooting for your team only when your team is kicking butt. This thread isn't about who doesn't come, because I'm sure the student ticket fiasco has been hashed over enough already. Sure the team has struggled with holding leads and rebounding, but they need us most when things aren't going well, not just when things are going well. Today's Cyclone power chants...half the students not even participating. Crowd standing...mostly started by the crowds on the side today. Why no signs anymore? Half-full Baylor even had those tonight. Chants coming out of timeouts..why not? Texas is a "huge" game on Tuesday. Our guys deserve a homecourt advantage with a boisterous, supportive crowd...win or lose. Not to mention recruits that are there experiencing it. Seriously, are these the same kids that showed up for KU, Michigan, and Iowa??? Something isn't quite right here, but I don't have the answer. Flame away, but I don't get it.

    Re: Student Section

    The whole game today all I could think about was how ashamed I am of our student section. It is really depressing...

    Ps: I am a student and hate how quiet most of the other students are

    Perhaps natural leaders should take over, rather than the political ones who somehow are suppose to be in charge.

    Re: Student Section

    I always figured that when we got to be a top 20 team for most of a season, the student section would be full. Especially when its been oversold by several hundred tickets.

    I was a bit surprised to see several hundred empty seats the last few games.

    this isn't exactly boring McDoormat era hoops.

    You would hope that 1/20th of the student population would want to addend basketball games.

    Re: Student Section

    I truly believe that some of the reasons many students have stopped going to the games are:
    1) first of all many of them were not die hard fans
    2) the long lines in the beginning of the season made those not die hard fans think is not worth going to the games
    3) Bbaal tickets are sold in a package with football instead of separately

    Apparently you skipped the entire McDermott era.

    Re: Student Section

    Oh... Yay. Another thread mentioning how bad the student section is


    "Be passionate and bold. Always keep learning. You stop doing useful things if you don't learn. So the last part to me is the key, especially if you have had some initial success. It becomes even more critical that you have the learning 'bit' always switched on."

    Re: Student Section

    Well, again, if some people have ideas, that's when your student leaders talk to the athletic administration and see what can be improved. And I somewhat regret starting this thread, because if the same students who cheered feverishly for the Mich/Iowa/KU games aren't coming then they certainly aren't going to look at this thread as relating to them.

    Re: Student Section

    Well my kid there once again. He barely made it into Iowa and KU games cause he had class and went to class instead of camping. Still believe if attending some other games got you better seating for big games, would have better attendance at all games. Still think die hard students should be rewarded. And will still think this after the next game when the topic is brought up again.
