Home crowd for WSU
Not to look past the Houston game, which I think will actually be the tougher of the 2 games. But am wondering what kind of crowd everyone is expecting for the WSU game. I know the game is "sold out", but most of the sellout games at BBT this year have been about 3/4 full. I'm thinking with us in the top 5 and the Shockers coming into town, that we get our first "full capacity" crowd.

Also, does anyone know if we will be breaking out the UC court for this game. I am pretty sure the Norse play on Saturday, so should be time to swap out the courts.

Saturday is the Final home game for NKU men, NKU Women final home game is next Monday at 5pm. I would think they would have the UC court out since this is the biggest game of the year to date, plus ESPN

Wasn't the court originally supposed to be swapped out for nearly every game? I remember reading that on here anyway.

I remember seeing that, too. Thought that quote was attributed to Bohn, but I can't find it after a quick search.

And I think the answer ended up being that UC will pay to swap it out for games on bigger networks. At least, that's what the practice seems to be so far. It's sort of rubbed me the wrong way given how special this season has been. But if it's a money issue, I understand.

I saw that they were swapping it out when the schedule permitted it. He hoped to do it for every game but that was dependent on the NKU men's and women's bball schedules.

My point is that was lip service.

In quickly comparing the schedules, there was no NKU home game (men's or women's) from Jan 29 to Feb 8. UC had two home games during that stretch (Houston and UCF), and we still played on NKU's court - even considering there was a 48 hour window in between each of our games and the next NKU game. Plenty of time to swap the courts.

Good catch; I've wondered about that too. It's not the end of the world but I think we were sold a bill of goods on the frequency the 'Cats would play on the red and black floor.

Attendance has been a bit strange as well. First we heard season tickets were sold out. Later, I recall mini-plans were sold out. Yet there are seats for sale on game day and plenty that are unoccupied. Although I have to say the crowds look pretty grand compared to conference mate Houston in their (nearly empty) home away from home.

Let's have this team be the first to win a national championship without ever playing a game in its home state! That would become an all-time great sports trivia question for generations to come.

We played one game in Norwood.
