    9:00 on a Wednesday night. Students are finally back from break. Oregon state is better than people expected.

    that's probably close. I'll go with the added factor of fans being uninspired following the last home game (loss) and say 9000.

    I'm more worried about Sunday's game partially overlapping with the Broncos.

    A 9pm tipoff? WTF?!? How do we get such ****ty start times ... a 9pm game on a weeknight is death. I think we'll be lucky to have over 8k.

    8700, but with a lot of paid for empty seats because of the late start.

    I guess 9pm is fairly rare for this time zone as CU fans are the only ones I ever see surprised and unhappy about 9pm game times. Out here it's just a given that you're going to have a handful of those every year, especially if you're decent as ESPN will grab you.

    I lived the first 45 years of my life in the Eastern time zone, so I understand that a 9pm start time for a CBB game there isn't all that unusual. In the same way that the local late night news there comes on at 11pm, instead of 10pm here in CO. But here in Colorful Colorado, a 9pm tipoff means that even if the game doesn't go to OT, those fans who need to drive back home to Denver and the suburbs probably don't get home until midnight. That may not be a big deal on a weeknight on the East Coast, but I think it's a factor here.

    Empty seats that have been paid for + a stronger student turnout is the reason I'm guessing this will be higher than Utah. We'll see.

    9,190 thanks to a strong student turnout. No-shows don't hurt the announced number.
    Average of 9 guesses was 8,599.
    CVille Buff was closest. I was almost closest.

    Woot. Now is the time for attendance to make its jump. If a 13-4 CU can't draw a good crowd against Oregon then it probably isn't going to happen against anyone not named Arizona.

    I'm nervous about the Broncos effect.

    Bingo. If it was away, I wouldn't worry too much, but being at home...

    NFL games average near 3hrs, and kickoff is at 2:40, so attendance is likely going to take a hit.

    Johnson and Tad talked about this in the post game last night. Tad laughed and said he knew where the program stood, and there would be Bronco watch parties in both beer gardens. Unless the Broncos go to OT, this should only affect the 1st half.

    ****. Yes I spaced on that. That's going to have a bigger effect than any of us would like, I'm afraid.

    Tad talked about that in the post game. He's hoping for a Bronco blowout so that folks might tear themselves away from that game but understands why fans will be tuned into the Bronco game. Hopefully a lot of students from out of state with no Bronco allegiance will show up.

    Any chance we get RG to move the mid court blue hairs and get the students where they belong?

    Unless they went from courtside to concourse, probably not. Because the students stand the whole game, it would take some major renovation of the bowl to put the students down low.

    Am I the only one that likes the students behind the basket?

    I like it, but too bad we can't have the best of both with students behind and then a narrower portion wrapping around

    I love it. I'd love to turn the other end partially into a "young alum" section for season tickets, though. Need to balance out the noise a bit and gain FT advantages in the 1st half.

    I just think that prime seating will lead to more students in the building in the short term and a generally more raucous place for teams to visit. And more students getting fired up at bball games now means a more energized alumni base down the road.

    the negatives behind that are (1) TV picks up the empty seats from the richest season ticket holders who don't care enough to sell or give away their tix (2) students along the baseline make for a louder court, which is also picked up on TV

    and part of me wonders if being in the first rows on the baseline make it more special for the students and would lead to better student attendance.
