I always seem to have a good time at the basketball games at the Convo.
The court and hoops appear to be in good shape.
The spirt squads and SOSA are always motivated.
The "skits" and other games are mildly entertaining.
All this talk about a new basketball arena is on the verge of ridiculous.
We can't even come close the filling the Convo.
There's no reason to even consider it until it's necessary because we are constantly over flowing and cash is rolling in.
I'm extremely thankful for the fans and season ticket holders that make so many games.
But there is little to no excitement created by the fans.
Very few throw Birds Up during free throws.
Almost no one but the band chant during the fight song.
Most don't yell, scream or cheer unless we're winning.
Demanding a new arena from your home will not work. We have to make a new arena inevitable by our participation.
Recruits have to be lured in by what they see when they visit. They have to know that the fans will be cheering for them, yelling, being loud and creating excitement at every game for any opponent no matter what the score.
That's not happening now.
Thank god we all have a right express our opinions.
Here's my opinion, shut the fuck up about the Convo until you start making a few games and get rowdy from tipoff to final buzzer. (And throw your fucking Birds Up during free throws.)
