    Re: hows the crowd looking for tonight

    Judging by the number of people trying to get rid/sell tickets on here the last few days, I am not expecting a very large crowd.

    There are A LOT of tickets still available on cyclones.com. I don't think tonight's crowd will be too big from the students or the general public.

    Re: hows the crowd looking for tonight

    Ticketmaster shows 1699 tickets still available (and thats just the upper deck seats that you can get from ticketmaster, doesnt include orphan seats that the department may have in the parquet.
    Given how many people are trying to sell on here, combined with a fairly large number of unsold tickets, i'm not anticpating a large crowd.

    Re: hows the crowd looking for tonight

    the people who show up 2nite are more than likely the bigger die-hards which means hilton should still be loud. the quiet, borderline, fairweather fans r stayin home so i predict the noise level to be good.

    Gotta say with my current cash situation it looks a lot more attractive to spend 1/2 the price to go to a women's game see them light up from the 3 point arc and knock off some top ranked teams than see the shorthanded mens team keep it close the 1st half and then get out conditioned in the 2nd half.

    i completely disagree with this. if our womans team wins, no1 in the nation cares and we have no bragging rights (whos gonna start the chant 'lets play womans basketball!' at a football game if we're losing). The school won't get any more recognition and lets face it, it's just flat out boring

    Evidently you don't know your history. The women's team outdrew the men during the 1999-2000 season. The numbers....

    Men's Team - 10,543 avg attendance
    Women's Team - 11,184 avg attendance

    The following season the men only outdrew the women by about 1,000 fans.

    No one in the nation cares if our men's team beats Colorado.

    How do you disagree with this? I was stating what I personally would rather spend my money on if things continue the way they have been. You are claiming to know what I which I would rather spend money on? I made no claim about anyone else in the nation or the fan base as a whole. I've gone to games for both teams this season and to be honest I feel like I've gotten the better bang for my buck at the Women's games. disagree with my opinion on how I came away feeling all you want.

    The ONLY difference between MBB and WBB attendance is the number of students there. And those seats that the students fill at MBB games get filled by the general public at WBB games.
