Good chance to showcase the program and area.  5,000 minimum is sorely needed.  Lets all show out and support the program and team.  We beat Oakland once we can make it another time so support is needed.   I'm excited!!!
I hope they raise the general admission stands on west side.  Common sense would say to do it.

Need to have a plan to get more students to the game.   Put them in one section to be scene on tv and then give them all red shirts to wear,  plus anything else to make it a REAL COLLEGE EXPERIENCE.  Come on Athletic Dept don't let this opportunity squander away.

We took care of business in GB.  Now we need to.do the same against Milwaukee.   Be nice going home in 1st place with a TV game on the 27th.  Should undoubtedly be a packed house if not shame on the university and city.

What's Beeghly hold? 6500?
a$$uming 3k already sold, how many students on top of that just show up on gameday?

Realistically, would be nice to get 4 - 5k total
Would be awesome if they still had the bleachers behind the dang basket!!

I'd be happy with 4500-5k. Crowd needs to be loud and energetic. Hopefully the students show up!

Wfmj reports that at least 3k tickets sold but doesn't include the students and sales at gate.  As of Thursday.   No to bad.   We need to put down the bleachers on the west side to accommodate any extra fans.   Hope the administration does that.   Don't know why they have been shut down this year.  One game was the school game they were open.   That was it.

I see tables set up in that area and people eating and drinking so more of a loge thing .  I think a remodel is long overdue
 Like need to happen this off season.  Remodel should include loges and NO BLEACHERS.  That is so 1970's.
