Hopefully they build it where someone 6' or taller can sit comfortably. If not, I'll be one of those watching from the couch.

Oh and stick the students down low like Duke does it.

Have to get the students to actually attend the games or those student sections by the court will look empty.

Very true. When I was in school, I remember having to camp out for games if you wanted a decent seat. LOL, that's definitely not happening anymore. That said, winning cures all. Start winning and they will show up. Unfortunately, based on the rate we're throwing up bricks, not sure that's going to happen anytime soon.

I attended the game tonight vs VCU....complete waste of time.  This team is not being coached up, no tangible offensive sets are run, poor ball protection and lazy passes continue.  This team is better than this, and this reflects on the coach.  I have waited for him to produce, and have given him enough time.  He needs to be terminated ASAP.    Losing to radford and VCU is pathetic.  Two losses in a row to his former assistants...that is pathetic and shows he doesn’t have what it takes to lead this team.  CDC needs to make a move.

LOL. VCU has the 13th rated D.  Pathetic you say?  Radford was pathetic. VCU was a better team owning some Horns! Here's the thing. The players play better when the home crowd is louder than 50 visiting fans.

A big reason the students don’t go is other than under the goals, the stick the students in the nosebleeds. I wouldn’t have gone either when I was at UT if they had stuck us in the upper deck. Students should all be down low if you want a good environment. Look what changing the student seating did for football!

Sheesh. Any students that couldn't get a court side for that game need help...I could have taken a $1 scalper and got in the lower bowl. Sad sad sad state of B12 affairs in Austin.

I think you could argue the students don't like the seats behind the baseline, but I think Kevin Durant was battling Acie Law the last time students were sitting in the mezzanine nosebleeds.  I think winning and being a Top 10 team would cure poor attendance.   However, as a previous poster stated, that doesn't appear to be on the horizon.

Yes, the performances were pathetic.  Doesn’t matter what the other teams defense is rated, the Horns sucked.

VCU pushed #4 UVA today....but we still played horribly against them.  Shaka show not so shitty with a win tonight over Purdue.  Didn’t watch the game, so I don’t know how they played.  Played well enough to win.

Because I'm a glutton for punishment (and have season tickets) I forced myself to go to the game. Through good times and bad, you gotta support the Horns. Pleasantly surprised with the win tonight. The biggest differences between this game and the last three losses: (1) shots actually went in and (2) Matt Coleman. At least for tonight, Coleman was an assertive floor general, drove the lane, and actually hit some 3's. Here's to hoping this game gives the good guys some confidence.

On a more frustrating note, there were a ridiculous number of Purdue fans and they were loud as hell. This felt more like a neutral site game. The lower bowl was asleep for most of the game until Jaxson got them out of their seats with that slam.

Finally, looks like Shaka woke up as far as his lineups. Kamaka got more minutes than Dylan, and I'm assuming that trend will continue for the rest of the season (or at least I hope so).

Met you a few seasons ago at the usc happy hour in Austin.  Do you travel from out of town to the hoops games?  For some reason I thought you lived a distance from Austin.  Oh, good talking to you again!

We actually moved back to Austin last summer. Good talking to you as well. If you ever want to meet up for a beer and/or a game, drop a line.

    • Blaming our recruiting woes on transplants does not tell the whole story. You can use that reason for the players who came to the state after Hurricane Katrina and went to Louisiana to play at LSU, but that does not explain a lot of the other people. Part of it is just the lack of success Texas has had on the football field. Many players want to play for the best, and bad Mack Brown and Charlie Strong did not produce great results. Other players in the state have been pragmatic about wanting a good education, which is why they chose schools like Stanford. I cannot blame them for that, though it is hard for me to understand how they could possibly have time to do anything lucrative like engineering, business, or computer science at a top school while being a full-time player.  tl;dr: Quality of football, quality of education, quality of coaching, and current state of the program factor in as much as whether someone was a recent transplant.

    • This. Think Okudah was one that was raised else where. Had no Texas roots if I’m not mistaken.
    • Liberty Hill 37 Carthage 27 about 10 mins to go in the 4th
