Put this into perspective:

There's only one thing that gets these people off their butts. I tap off the Stein Song with 24 seconds to go in a one point game, just to see if that gets them up. No reaction whatsoever. Shameful. Might as well play in an empty arena.

When men's games are more lively while the building is considerably more empty, that's a real problem.


It's weird because last season had some pretty good crowds. They weren't real loud but they were better than this season. Is it the Barron effect? The transfers? People getting tired of being perennial bridesmaids to Albany? A sparse & horrible home schedule? Or all of the above?

Hopefully fans will turn out to support the men's program when Barron becomes head coach....

I would love to see Barron take over the men's program. He has the clout to push the University to invest in that program. Would they actually make the investment though?? He has the coaching acumen to make the switch. Would be a great move for both parties in my opinion.

This would be the best news for the men's program in a long time ;)
