    SoonerHoops: One more note from today's game: the paid attendance of 13,490 was a Lloyd Noble Center record. Thank you fans! #Sooners

    I saw a bunch of empty seats. And maybe it was all the Squawk fans but it could have been a lot louder.

    Attendance record OU vs KU

    There were plenty of open seats. No way that was a record. I suppose it could have been a record for seats paid for. Still, it was a ton of fun.

    Paid attendance means amount of tickets sold, not actual attendance inside the LNC.

    I think it was in 2003 that I went down there when we beat KU. Now that was a packed house full of screaming people.

    I remember going in I think 2000? When Cincinatti was in town with Kenyon Martin and it was ****ing packed to the gills. That was a while ago. I also remember the years with Hollis and co. right around there, Bedlam was always packed, OU/TX, etc.
    Yesterday was nice but nowhere near those crowds.

    And the KU fans are ****ing annoying. Probably similar to the OU football superfans who go to every road game. Every made basket was like a game winner. 5 minutes into the game, Withey makes a free throw and their fans go apeshit like he just cured aids.

    I remember those Cincy games. Both years we played them right after they got beat and they kicked our ass. Those were some good teams. They might have won it all had Martin not broken his leg.

    look great on TV. But there were times when I turned away (I was cooking) and I heard a cheer and it was Kansas fans. They seemed to have traveled well.

    This was the loudest crowd in a game I attended after Billy left...I had already moved away by the time that Blake was playing.

    Good crowd. Not even top 20 all-time, but it's good to be back on the right track.

    No. OU fans should be emnarrassed by all the KU fans there. At AFH you can put the opposing fans in a thimble.

    KU fans save their money by NOT traveling during football.

    You should have seen "security" trying to stop them from rushing the court. Twenty kids would rush past a guard and the guard would choose one and grab them, trying to stop them. It was pretty weird, really. Saw someone grab a chair from the band area and throw it.

    There is a video on the game thread showing it all.

    Funny thing is the attendance for this game was 11K as opposed to the 13K+ "announced" yesterday.

    All those kids in the 95 game probably couldn't wait to celebrate at Brothers.

    Yep. I hoisted my pledge brother up onto the rim, and he cut down the net. There are a few of us that have a piece, and the main portion ended up with Ryan Minor who wore it around his neck. I remember the place was still rockin as Sampson came back out to do his post game with Bob Barry.

    Going undefeated at home that year was awesome, I was at every game (also was at all of the girls games since I was a junior member...Etta Maytubby was an animal)

    We had to stand around the lower bowl walkway during one of those Cincy games. Not an empty seat in the house.

    Well if I thought OK was a better place to live than where I do in Kansas then I would live in OK.

    Considering KC is about the only place of note in the whole damn state. Sad thing is the good part of KC is in Missouri....

    My roots are in west Kansas and I ****ing dread every time I go there...

    Even Elk City clowns on west Kansas so I would say no where in Oklahoma is as bad as Kansas. That's not even considering the illegal mexican population...*cough* Liberal/Hugoton *cough*

    As for the crowd, the amount of blue shirts was rough at the beginning. Fortunately, the Sooners showed up to play and kept the OU crowd in it. Hats off to the students for showing good support for quite a few games now. Last year vs Kansas was brutal when they did their rock chalk chant in our own stadium.

    Thanks for posting this, what memories. I loved that team, you talk about playing above yourself, that team did.

    You mean the Mo side with over 100 murders a year? The place where the school district lost its accreditation? The side with too many abandoned buildings, blighted areas, and hopeless neighborhoods to even count? I guess where I live in Ks with its flourishing businesses, acclaimed schools, nice areas, houses, humming along economies, etc., don't count for much. Having the Chiefs and Royals don't make you a good city.

    Good part is in Mo.? Who's smoking the loco now?

    State to State comparison your fraction of 1% area in Kansas doesn't hold a candle...

    Well that 1% is where I live. And the "1%" as you call it has the highest median household income and highest per-capita income in Kansas and is among the most affluent in the United States as well as having 20% of the state's population.

    Personally I care about where I live as opposed to the entire state and where I live is a very nice area. I'm not interested in living in Topeka or Wichita. I could move to wherever I wanted and I am here. I'm sure people that live elsewhere just love it there. Hell, people loved living in a shithole like Vegas. So a guy that has basically lived in the same area for over 35 years says he prefers it to other places and people soil themselves? Life ain't that long.

    Soil myself?! Not quite...

    I was really just amazed by your assertion... and I think that even you would admit there is a pretty glaring difference between:

    One is a very valid assertion and wouldn't have drawn many comments, if any... the other is, as I said, loco on top of loco...

    Well someone originally said something about it being a good thing to get out of Kansas. I merely stated that I ,prefer Kansas to Oklahoma and I believe it to be a better place to live - hence I live here. It's okay to say that about Kansas but if something is said about Oklahoma the butthurt comes out. Simple as that.

    Now hopefully back to the discussion from the OP. I've said all I am going to say.
