I'm in that picture.
Despite the story being polluted by a photo of tini, it was a really good piece. Buffs have a real opportunity to be a major player on the national scene in both men's and women's hoops.
I don't see any reason why we can't have the best homecourt advantage in the PAC-12.
I'm thinking we already do. And it is only going to get better.
with the improvement I am seeing in our student section from game to game; with cheers, with paying attention, and with all the different distractions (BTW who ever had that effects of altitude sign, great idea), We already have a great home court, when break is over I hope that the arena is close to capacity every night. Watching this basketball program is amazing, went from almost nothing a year and a half ago, and we are now on the cusp of building CU into a Pac-12 power house (this may be ahead of myself for this year, but next year is going to be fun to watch)
the big problem in my section is that the people directly next to me, in front of me and behind me don't do anything but watch the game. They don't yell, they rarely clap, they just sit and watch the action. We need to be loud, rabid fans if we want to truly create a hostile environment for opposing teams.
Engage them. I make a point of getting some high 5s going with the quieter fans around me to get them to come out of their shell a bit. It's amazing how much you can get people to change over the course of a season.
The key for this team down the stretch is to get all the pieces working together. If Dufalt, Brown, and Tomlinson can perform as strong as they did last night and have Dinwiddie and Roberson perform as well as I have seen in previous games, then we have a very strong starting 5. Get booker in there as our 3pt scoring 6th man and that is quite a team. Chen is a great defender that we can plug in and rest someone else, SHT needs to step up though and let Dufault get some every now and then. Last night I saw briefly what Cain can do for us. That block was awesome but the thing I noticed was that in transition he was one of the first 3 back to our end. A big that can run like that will only make us better.
I hope we see Cain's minutes steadily increase. I know that he's encountered a couple of speed-bumps this season, but I hope he gets into game shape quickly. He might become the wildcard presence down the stretch.
I don't know if we'll catch Oregon in either football or MBB but I think we can be a clear 2nd in both once the students and locals buy in completely.
The only problem with your method is you're trying to do that after every made free throw.
For a while this season, that strategy resulted in too little contact with my neighbors. :lol:
For serious though, it is awesome how excited you get for every free throw. Not like the student section doing the standard "C-U" on makes, but multiple claps as you sit on the edge of your seat. Badass fan, imo.
Totally disagree that we can't overtake Oregon in MBB (frankly we already arguably have). They have their share of dead atmospheres, you've got to keep in mind the degree to which Duck fans are moronic bandwagoners and how quickly they'll jump ship.
Buff fans are the most loyal in this conference in football, btw.
On the right under the basket; black hat, black shirt looking towards the ceiling?
Yes. Good call.
I'm good with faces. Photographic memory.
Where have you seen my face? :lol:
Your avatar is not your face?
Dark Horse, maybe?
Could be but I don't recall Tuba being there.
The testing our loyalty has endured in the past few years gives us an edge!
No doubt. We're the spouse who, after having a golden age of our marriage, has been lied to, abused and cheated on while helping our partner through several interventions and 12-step programs as well as financial ruin and a public scandal that embarrassed the whole family. We stuck with our marriage and we got through it.
The Buff fanbase was tempered in the fires of hell, baby. We're stronger than any group in the Pac-12.
