No offense meant, but your opinion holds 0 value on this subject since you haven't been to a basketball game in 2 years. You actually have no idea what you are talking about.

You mean the 5 people that said they dont personally do it or they are not fan but fine if it stays around.

Its a tradition that sticks around because its the only thing ODU can claim, they dont do anything new or fresh. They just stick to one thing and its gotten old. Clearly its not getting enough students involved, students are board at the games. The game play doesn't help sometimes but ODU has not ingrained the correct message in the students.
Show up, bring energy and be Loud and Proud is what ODU should be telling the students. On TV I see shots of the students and half are on their phones and only a few are wearing ODU gear/colors. I dont understand how ODU doesnt see this as a problem. Then again even if they do, they arent going to do anything about it.

In other words, it has gotten old for you and you would like it to go away. Many others would like it to stay.

On TV, you get no sense of how it goes over inside the arena.

I mean I do live in Charlotte so there is that issue. Enlighten me on how I dont know what I am talking about? I literally watch every game on TV and have seen the participation. Which is not much at all, nothing has changed and it hit rock bottom before the DJ. Student section is still and energy-less joke. You dont have to be there to see that most fans are sitting down 95% percent of the time.

The La tech game in which there were no announcers was so embarrassing not just because of the technical issues but because there were 6000 people there and you would never know it.

Stop trying to cover up real issues by holding on to some dumb dance that no one really cares about.

I find it interesting that you are decrying the lack of ODU traditions while trying to tear down one of the more longstanding traditions the school has. Why does this one dance have to go before anything else?

If you read I said I am fine with it if it is part of a group, by itself it doesn't reflect well on ODU.

Meh - you are the only one in this thread who doesn't want it. Maybe just accept that you are in the minority on this one and let it go.

Doesn't reflect well on ODU? What? Explain.
