    The atmosphere tonight!!!

    I can say that I was pumped for my first Big XII home game. When the game started, I will admit that I was a little disappointed that the Hilton wasnt filled completely but the atmosphere tonight was amazing. That was the loudest arena I have heard before, when we had our run in the beginning of the 2nd half. I know that it has been louder before and thats why I am even more excited for the Kansas game on Saturday.

    Re: The atmosphere tonight!!!

    It was definitely a step in the right direction, the students were much better. Was a little disappointed with total attendance, but not terrible. I would put it at a 7 out of 10 on the magic scale.

    Re: The atmosphere tonight!!!

    Due to living too far away to get to the game, I had to watch on TV. This was more of a technical error, but I could hardly hear the announcers at times because the crowd noise was much louder. Again, a tech error, but either way, the crowd sounded better than other games this year.


    For I for S forever!

    What was the announced attendance?

    Wait till the KU game, if we're in it at all, you won't be able to hear the person next to you. Wish I lived less than 4 hours from Hilton.

    Players and GMac all had good things to say about the crowd tonight on the post-game show.

    I'd still like to see it at 14,000+! I wonder if we'll hit it for KU?

    Re: The atmosphere tonight!!!

    announced attendance was 12,054 according to John Walters on the post game show. i assume its paid attendance since they dont count at the door.

    That's probably closer to the actual attendence. The only glaringly empty spots were the student seats up on the balcony, and even those were half full.

    Re: The atmosphere tonight!!!

    I have no doubt that Saturday will be a sell-out. And yes, if we are in the game in the 2nd half (which I think we will be!) Hilton will have the roof blown off. I'll never forget the Texas game a few years ago (Boddicker's free throw "attempts)...I was yelling at my sister, right next to me and could barely hear!

    Makes ME wish I lived closer than 24 hours away...or 4 hours and $400.... See you next year.

    The Texas game in 2004 when Boddicker missed 2 free throws, that was ridiculous as the floor in the balcony was even shaking! I hope that Hilton is half that this Saturday!
