Alright terpfam, l wanted to make a post to show you all what my friend that goes to arizona posted on their board about improving their student section. Apparently the U of A is having a similar problem with getting students to the game and cheering. in this article below, he outlines a bunch of ways to fix the problem and i think we could learn a lot from his ideas.
In the article he posts a link from when Sean Miller invited the students to practice to teach them a few new cheers/chants. My favorite is the boink/boink/pass/brick one but more so i LOVE the idea of the coach getting involved with the students to help create a better atmosphere at the games. Somebody should definitely get in contact with someone in the basketball program and suggest a special open practice in which turge teaches students new cheers while having a little fun with the team and fans. I mean, hey he is a new coach and wouldn't this be an awesome way to meet the students who care a lot about the team and show the student body its their team too!
Hear is the link for the open practice with students:
P.S. Another great video he has in there is the one about the "Izzone" at Michigan State which is a must see
alright thats about it, so check out the article, watch the videos and tell me what you think
