1) The students have really upped their game. They packed the entire South section - all the way to the top. Very impressive. Loud, disruptive, and funny. The "Where's your coach?" chant after the ASU coach got tossed was fantastic. Kudos to the students for what they've accomplished there. I didn't really think it was possible. When I was a student, we just sat wherever. Nothing was organized. The difference is very noticable. 2) Parking - nightmare. We drove up Colo Ave and didn't make it to 28th st before stopping. We waited through two light cycles without moving an inch before we pulled into the left turn lane and proceeded to park at Basemar. This has got to improve. The CEC was half full at tipoff because there was a line of cars a half mile long waiting to get in. This isn't rocket science. Figure it out, folks. Unless they make some serious improvements to this, they're going to start turning off the casual fans (like the sack family, for instance). 3) Concessions - I saw chinese food & some other weird sh*t for sale. Bizarre, but I like it. 4) Scoreboards, ribbon boards, other subtle improvements inside the CEC - very nice. I like the Ralphie tribute along the North Wall, too. Very cool. I don't know how many folks take the time to look at that, but it's worth the effort. 5) Attitude - this is the biggest change. CU basketball has been so bad for so long that people had begun to think it could never change. It's changing. Everybody from the fans to the players to the dude working the concession stand expects CU to win every single home game. That is a totally new feeling. It's a good thing. CU basketball has done something I never thought possible. Well done.
