• I was really disappointed by the student section today. Considering this was the last home game of the year, and senior day, it was both a bad turn-out and a particularly disinterested group of students. Where were the guys standing up in front cheering? I guess they only come out for the 2 games each season when we're on national TV. Why were those who did show up sitting on their hands or staring at their glowing internet boxes the whole time? This is a college basketball game! And a BIG GAME, at that! And the final home game of the entire season! I imagine that it doesn't feel very good for the players, especially the seniors, to see that the student body is so apathetic towards the team. If there were any recruits there today, that's gotta be a huge strike against UP as they weigh their college decisions.
As much as we grumble about the lack of enthusiasm if not presence of our student section, this may just be a sign of the times. Here's an article I read today about how big DI BCS schools with huge enrollments are having trouble getting students to show up for big football games even when they pretty much give tickets away.
Will next generation of fans show up?
