    Re: Cyclone Alley

    Penn State knows they have basketball?

    Utah State? Seriously?

    Re: Cyclone Alley

    It's alright but I don't think it can compare to the Dukes or Michigan States of college basketball. It would help tremendously if we didn't sit behind the basket.

    Somewhere between 5 and 15 ranking most likely.

    Eh, I don't think we belong in the top 10. Maybe top 15 but we don't compare to places like Illinois.

    Top 15. If we were on national TV more and got more exposure, I bet we'd be in the top 10. Based on the product we've had on the floor the passed 3ish years, our student section has been great. It could have been a lot worse. When we start winning more games and getting some bigger upsets at Hilton, Cyclone Alley will be awesome.

    I'd say maybe top 25. There's nothing that really makes CA standout.

    With the record we've had over the past 3 years, our students have a great turn out. Yes, it could be better. But, find me 15 more teams with the same record as ours with a student section as big and as rowdy as CA.

    Agreed. Watch some ACC games - it doesn't matter who they play, the student section is full. If CA wants to be top 10, fill it at every game. Every game needs to look like we're playing Kansas.

    You're probably only watching UNC, Duke, and Maryland games. You really think Virginia Tech, Boston College, and Miami have better sections then us?

    Get the wins, which generates excitement, which mean more people will come.

    I'm not sure on those particular teams but I'd say we're in that midrange of sections that really aren't different than any of the other ones. This is not taking into account our lack of success over the last few years and I'm sure after our deep NIT run this year and Barnes signing we will see a large increase of students at the games. Hell I may even need to stay an extra year.

    Hard to not watch those teams when they're playing in the NCAA and NIT.

    Then you prove my point and another posters point. IF the wins are there, the people will be there, and then we will get more TV coverage. I don't think it's to hard of an equation.
