Well played tonight. Little ugly to start, but played well after that.
Glad to see no letdown after Kansas also.

Would have been sick had OU had Kruger in 2007-09.

Oklahoma vs TCU
Maybe on talent alone. It would be inspite of their coach
February 11th, 2013 07:58 PM
A couple thoughts..
1. I love how hard we play.
2. I wish we would take better care of the ball, we are pretty reckless.
3. I am starting to love our freshmen.
4. How the **** did KU lose to that team?

I realize that, doesn't mean people would n't want to wait and spend their money on the thunder

If you want to see a crowd turn on the KU game. I have the radio on and it sounds like there's a jet airplane in there. So far they've hit 118 decibels.

Yep. Crowds like tonight will really get those top recruits. Should I play in front of the same crowd at OU or at the Y?

Ryan Spangler was not on the bench anywhere. Does anyone know where he was? Buddy fractured his foot, needs surgery and will be out 4-6 weeks.

Announced crowd was something like 4,000 or something. Although there should be no excuse, it was a 6 pm game on a Monday against what is not a traditional conference opponent (and a team that sucks). Like I said though, no excuse for that bad of a crowd. I'm pretty sure we had that many in the arena when we played Ohio earlier this year, didn't we?
The Buddy injury just kicks my ass. I'm just sick for these guys. They were finally jelling and ready to go on a roll and this happens.

Good win for OU.
TCU looked like an absolute joke. 11 points in a half is pathetic for any team in division 1, this isn't womens basketball. How they beat KU is beyond me.
Feel bad for Hield, but that shit happens and guys gotta step up.

Oklahoma vs TCU
So irritating. This is a good group of kids and a good coach turning a program around. I live in Lawrence, KS and if I ever move even as close as Wichita I will have season basketball tickets. I don't understand why people go crazy over Thunder, but can't support OU hoops.
February 11th, 2013 09:20 PM
Oh you mean that two top 15, in-state rival teams, battling for first place in the conference. playing on the home court of a traditional basketball powerhouse has a big, loud crowd? I never would have guessed that......

They sell out for Popcorn State in November. I guarantee you if they play TCU again the place will be packed. They support their team no matter who the opponent. Think if you're bringing recruits to our game tonight or any game in Lawrence. Who makes the better impression? Building a top tier program involves more than just on the court.

OOOOh because that $5 ticket to the OU game is so unaffordable...
February 13th, 2013 06:48 PM
Seriously can someone explain to me why the attendance for this game was so bad. I live in Texas and came up for the Texas game which was on Big Monday on a Holiday and there only 7800 people there. I understand why people wouldn't want to pay to see Capel's mess but he's gone and this team deserves support. The Thunder wasn't playing and less face it, what the hell else is there to do in Norman? What happened on Monday?

Re: Oklahoma vs TCU
Because OU fans don't really care about OU basketball unless we are highly ranked, playing on a weekend day, not playing the same time as the thunder, not playing during Wednesday church, playing late enough that they can get there after work, not playing so late that they have to be up past 10 o'clock on a school night, not playing when it's snowing and dangerous to drive, not playing when it's really nice outside, playing a big rival, not playing during the renaissance fair, played in a new basketball friendly arena on campus, don't play at the same time as the 2A state championships at the big house, and the game isn't on TV.
Did I miss anything?

Re: Oklahoma vs TCU
Sad but true. We have a lot of bandwagon idiot fans
February 13th, 2013 07:53 PM
I know we aren't a basketball school but we ought to be able to get more than 5000 people to go to a game 2 days after we beat KU. I guess that's asking too much.
February 13th, 2013 08:01 PM
The only thing I would change about what you said would be to add that there truly is a small core of people (I would include myself in this) who attend every home game and try to make it to away games. Plus, there are others (on this board) who catch every game they can, but live far enough away they can't realistically make it to home games. I would agree, however, that the majority of fans only show up when the team is playing well AND playing against a big time opponent or rival.
I will say, though, that it does seem different now than in the past. I realize this year's team can't be compared to the really good teams Kelvin had, but he also had some teams that were just pretty good. And, even those teams filled the stadium when we played KU, Texas, OSU, etc. . . There were PLENTY of open seats when we upset KU the other day. My season tickets are in the upper level and I sat in the 5th row.
With all that said, there are plenty of football fair weather fans as well. Hell, people left the stadium when we were down only 7 against Notre Dame with 3 or 4 minutes left and we had the ball. Not some people, a LOT of people. It's just that there are more football fans in general than basketball fans I suppose. I don't honestly ever see it changing on a consistent basis, unfortunately. On the bright side, I guess I'll get to keep sitting in great seats.
