Why Not Us? Why Not Now?
Huge crowd for Saturday against our chief rival.
Sellout the Jack.
Postseason.
DW for coach of the year.
Discuss.

DW is easily COY, given where we were in pre-season predictions.

Since we are up 2 1/2 with 7 to go, and 3 of those at the Jack, we would have to shoot ourselves in the foot not to go to NIT, at least.

Selling out the Jack these days would take more promotional emphasis than I have seen from our administration.

This team and this coach deserve better.

True Trojan diehards, we will see you there!

Casual fans and students/faculty/staff/alums... come on this is the big one!

Hog fans, especially the 50+ crowd, need to pay some respect to Darrell Walker and what he and his team are accomplishing in Little Rock. Let's make him feel he's back at Barnhill.

Red Wolves fans, especially central AR alums, this is always a winnable game for your team. These rivalry games get crazy. So do your part.

Little Rock college basketball fanatics (all twelve of you) if you are able to attend and do not, you are not a real fan of the college game.

How much has changed since 2016 that we cannot have at least 4500?

RE: Why Not Us? Why Not Now?
I'm not sure what has changed other than our fanbase getting older and thus for various reasons no longer coming to games. If things continue as is, we'll be lucky to have 3000 at the game. On the other hand, I am still holding out hope that this is the game that folks in Little Rock who have been saying "Hey Darrell is doing really well. I need to go out and see this team" all decide to come out to the Jack. Stranger things have happened. I remember an 8300 sell-out at Barton, vs. Mercer, when no one expected it. I remember over 12K at an LR-ASU game at Alltel which shocked all of us diehards. So maybe Saturday will be one of those days. Won't change my opinion of Little Rock as a sports town, but even here, strange things happen every once in awhile.

I am not holding my breath, but a sellout or near sellout crowd is not out of reach.

If ASU contributes 2000 who would not otherwise be there, we might get at least in the neighborhood.

ASU hasn't been getting 2000 in Jonesboro, but they do have a lot of alumni in Little Rock.

The time Tweaky and I attended the ASU game in LR it seemed like there were a lot more ASU fans in attendance than Trojan fans.
