Game atmosphere SOLUTIONS
Last Thursday they showed up because the coach created a buzz about it. I'm sure some chewp/free marketing went into it too. I think it is as simple as that and I don't think "we" can do much of anything and I don't think we need to brainwash them like they work for thhe Soviets. The administration could simply go back to the files from 2004, see what Dr. Runte and Jarrett did, and redo what can be worked into the budget.

RE: Game atmosphere SOLUTIONS
I live in Elizabeth City NC and I have not attended a game this season but have watched or listened to every one. My question is what kind of half time entertainment is being provided for the fans? When watching the game on computer/TV I don't see anything other than an alumni getting congrats for contribution. We use to have the Blues Brothers, the trampoline acrobats, Chick fil A dropping free sandwich coupon, etc. I don't even see the cheerleaders come out during time outs? Lets face it, there is absolutely NOTHING exciting about going to see an ODU basketball game! JJ and his style of play as well as his own demeanor on the sidelines is boring, no entertainment for the fanes. Do you think anybody at ODU gives a damn??? Hell no! Just keep sending your $$$ that's all they care about.

Personally I don't find averaging almost 74 points per game boring.
I don't find winning 10 out of 11 boring.
I don't find being 15-4 boring.


But then again, I'm an optimistic kinda guy.

RE: Game atmosphere SOLUTIONS
Span, nothing has changed. Cheerleaders are still coming out during breaks. T-shirts are still being thrown. Big Blue is still acting a fool. The new DJ is awesome. Contests during breaks like FT shooting between fans. And fun breaks where they have fans doing their best Carlton dance or impression of Jack and Rose from Titanic. And occasional professional halftime shows. The quick change magician was probably the best halftime show I've ever seen at ODU.

You should probably spend less time watching from home and getting mad about things that arent actually happening. Instead, buy a miniplan, get out of the house, and support the team. It's a really good deal.

One last comment. Wish they could add 10-15 more to the ODU band and turn them loose like Monarx mentioned somewhere. Less canned music more college band music.

Great deal. Got my son 2 tix to MTSU, UAB, and FIU for $60 total. Great seats too.

RE: Game atmosphere SOLUTIONS
I also think having the Blue's Brothers back will go a long way in improving fan experience at the game, which ultimately boosts fan enthusiasm about ODU Basketball. If we can't have the original Blue's Brothers back, and for heaven's sake, we may not even want to, as they may have lost a step or two with age, let's seek new blood. Heck, pick a couple of more energetic student band members and have ODAF solicit donations to buy all the apparel they'll need, not just to start this thing off, but to fund this initiative over the long haul. Yes, we can easily support it. Not only will it be fun for fans to participate in, the cheering that accompanies these acts can be a source of motivation for our basketball players to win games. ODAF - Let's do this!

Coming from someone who’s been to every home game this year, I concur with you’re assessment.

I agree with this. It all comes down to getting a dialog going with the people at ODU/ODAF.

Agreed - this is a team, coaching staff, and season worth celebrating! This is what being a Monarch fan is all about! Celebrate the good times and work through any rough stretches. It’s much easier to follow Kentucky, UNC, Villa, etc - but I’ll take rooting for the Monarchs over them any day!

I don't follow basketball.. but I had no idea that the team was doing so well. I don't hear anything about the team on campus.
