    You need to head to the other thread. We make fun of your play quite a bit.

    My memories are that it used to be a good atmosphere in the Dr. Tom era. Went to a couple games back then and it was full and loud, but that was like 20 years ago and against Michigan and Indiana.

    The Sunday big Ten games are always brutal crowd-wise outside of MSU, Mich, and for some reason Nebraska.

    Leave it to Pitt* to put up nearly 50 in the first half, then disappear in the second and lose.

    Yes because a Thanksgiving break football game is totally comparable to regular basketball game.

    I never realized Carver seated about 70,000. I've never been there but I probably should go see that. Sounds impressive for a basketball arena.

    If that is the case, Barta should probably pay the power bill so they can turn the heat back on in Carver.

    Also while I don't condone leaving early (I didn't - I was there until after the final victory formation snap) leaving a cold, night football game in the fourth quarter when your team is down 3 scores is exactly the same as not showing up for the start of an indoor basketball game.

    Whoever thought that arena design was a good idea needs their head examined. The bowl design puts less seats close to the action and the stairs end up creating empty space close to the court. Less premium seating equals less revenue and less atmosphere. I attended Iowa for one year before transferring to ISU. I had student tix the year I was there and felt like I was miles from the court and I was in the lower third of the bowl.

    The “Kirkwood students and alumni guide To Being A Dooshbag Tavernhok Guidebook” has 69 pages and they are all numbered 69 so it’s impossible not to be on the same page as you.

    All ya gotta do is a hokey faux tug on heart string jesture to some disadvantaged group of children that will bring them in.I think a wave to the Iowa team at half time would be a definite disadvantage group.
