    Why do we boo so much?

    Its kind of embarrassing that we boo EVERY call that doesn't go our way. We are the laughing stock of college basketball because of how much our fans boo.

    Everyone does it, it isn't just ISU fans.

    It's good that there's always people to crack jokes to make us feel good in tough times.

    Re: Why do we boo so much?

    I'm pretty sure that anyone that has ever been to a college game outside of Ames, Iowa has also heard "boo". Any sort of student section tends to do that.

    I highly doubt that anyone other fans care that we boo, they boo just the same. Its just not in ames, iowa.

    Re: Why do we boo so much?

    I am not certain of this, but I would think that boo'ing is part of the home court advantage??? It has to have some kind of effect on the officials?

    Re: Why do we boo so much?

    Ok maybe we aren't the laughing stock but we don't have to boo every god damn call that doesn't go our way. Its part of the game that refs are going to screw up.

    If we're the laughing stock of college basketball our fans have nothing to do with it.
