    Blame that one on the Students!

    Did anyone else notice how poor the Student section performed tonight? I think it had a huge impact on our inside game...

    We looked awful! 20,000 student screaming at the top of their lungs would not have made a difference tonight. What did we have - 8 points in the paint?

    I noticed that Yuri did not play much in the last half and CJ was in there quite a bit. I am not sure what Yuri's future is. We did not do a very good job of trying to get it inside. How can we be so different from one game to the next?

    The crowd as a whole was awful tonight but the team was as dead as could be as well.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    I'm not sure why everyone has to point the finger at us, the students. It takes one finger to point, but three fingers are pointing back to you anyways I had a huge post I was going to post but it would be like talking to a brick wall anyway (most on this site do support the team) That is my $0.02

    Re: Blame that one on the Students!

    please spell our players' names right. its JIRI not Yuri. that goes for anyone else on the team. there have many "Dody Dunsen", "Rashon Clark" "Corey J/Cory MAcIntosh"'s posted on CF.

    Apparently because you didn't put the 'sarcastic' tag in your post people didn't get it....

    Just as a curious question how many student tickets are even available, to my knowledge isn't there only 8,000 or so devoted to students or better put how many were sold total, ya I like that better

    I'll ditto this, apparently Mizzou is no longer a big game in general I guess. Usually the Mizzou game brings one of the bigger conference crowds. The crowd was pretty lacking and every time we had a reason to get excited Mizzou would call a timeout to quiet the crowd it seemed like.

    I was REALLY disappointed with how soon some of the fans left. Some were leaving as early as the 7 minute mark and nearly half the crowd all got up at the 4 minute mark. I know it was not pretty but that had to be a painful sight for the players to see the crowd giving up on them like that when most games they've not given up until the final buzzer sounds.

    Re: Blame that one on the Students!

    Coaches coach, players play, and fans yell. Nothing more, nothing less. If fans and crowds were that important, virtually no team would EVER win on the road. The crowd had NOTHING to do with the players and their ability/inability to execute the game plan. Players play for themselves and maybe their teammates if the team is lucky.

    While we're at it, lets blame it on the cold. Or maybe the fact Tuesday ends in y.

    Seriously - we weren't winning this one tonight - full house or empty.
