The more things change the more they stay the same


It didn't take a great basketball mind to figure out that last night's game would be the best out of conference home game on the Maryland schedule this year. So where were the fans and where were the students? I take pride in my skill in infiltrating the student section to upgrade my seats. It is no longer much of a challenge. The wall was maybe 2/3's full. Maybe.

We surrendered home court to William and Mary and Morgan State with disastrous results. The home court advantage at Cole is largely absent at the ComCast Center. There is something about the constant distractions and the undemocratic layout that stifles the crowd.   The idiotic rules about what songs the band can play only make it worse. Unless the crowd comes prepared the ComCast Center doesn't give us much of an advantage. Given the teams that we have had the last few years why aren't the fans coming prepared? Actually why aren't they coming at all?
