    I wouldn’t exactly call it a crowd.
    Perhaps tomorrow will bring better attendance. It’s depressing



    I like to surround myself with people who share in my inappropriate comments, sarcasm, and random shenanigans

    Probably not, as I added four season tickets to our 2 so we can take other family members to the games. What hurts most is the students being on break for conference games, otherwise the crowds have been o.k.

    It’s just not fun without students.

    Ever since they moved back on campus it hasn't really been fun with the students either. They're sitting on the butts more than the people at mid-court. The student section at the old BSA was far more lively (of course they were behind the benches not behind the basket). Seems like the students forgot how to get involved in the game after those two years of the games being off campus.

    I think some consistent, solid basketball against good opponents or meaningful rivals would get the students excited. I think back to last year's home game against UND. The students turned out for that one and were energized. We thanked them for their support by dropping a turd in their lap.
    I don't care what Jim says. That is not the real Ben Franklin. I'm 99% certain.

    They were there... how energized they were could be debated. But, like you said, not much that happened on the court was worthy of excitement both last year and the first year in the SHAC when they played UND.

    Bottom line is winning is fun. And we're not winning enough.
    Stand your ground, have a tough hide, roam wild and free, have a strong spirit, let the chips fall where they may.

    If you was a student who would get you engaged and having fun, Saul or Mr. Grumpy Scowl? Not saying Saul was perfect, but he was my favorite coach at NDSU, football included, and I miss that personality of his.

    The current RPI vs the teams we've beaten:
    - 133 (UCSB)
    - 324 (Towson)
    - 313 (EWU)
    - 240 (MoSt.)
    - 264 (USD)

    And our losses:
    - 67 (NMState)
    - 205 (Miami OH)
    - 309 (UIW)
    - 86 (ETSt)
    - 19 (Zags)
    - 59 (Drake)
    - 33 (IA State)
    - 119 (Montana)
    - 161 (IPFW)
    - 179 (Omaha)

    We haven't played any of the top-100 RPI teams even close. We have exactly 1 win in the top-150 and I wouldn't be surprised to see UCSB drop into the 200's by season end (there non-conference schedule was a joke). I didn't include non-DI games... those are embarrassing.
