I am a little surprised that Charleston was so low. Their arena looks modern and nice. They also seem to draw the second most fans at home games[/align][/u] (besides UNCW of course).

Even the pictures were dated some. Drexel has made some major improvements in the past few years that did not appear to be captured in the pictures etc, including getting rid of many of the bleachers and replacing with seat backs, as well as closing the corners to give it a more arena-like feel versus the crappy gym it was/is. Was glad to not see it at the bottom, even though it certainly is close even with the upgrades. When full with a good team the DAC is definitely one of the toughest places to place due to the intimacy of the stands to the court. Unfortunately it has been 5 years since we have had something to be excited over.

How do you get so much intimacy out of fans with seat backs?

CofC and William and Mary games were every bit as loud as the good old days.

Mullet has a decent point there. There were times in the early to mid 2000s when it didn't matter who we were playing. The fans showed up and put out for the team. Student participation is a huge key.

Your 2005-2006 CAA championship team averaged 5,664, which is more than Trask holds now.

I don't think he was using the word "intimacy" the way you just attempted to.
