What's going on with Terrapin Nation? Does the fan base realize how big this game is for the program? I've seen little to no buildup/rallying on the forums. Can't stress how unique an opportunity this is for us, the fan base We're kicking off the season against the best program in the country, on the biggest (non-postseason) stage possible, and on a (and here's a critical part) neutral court. This is where we come into play, rare opportunity for us to make a statement against the Kentucky. Out numbering or at least rivaling them in #s plus enthusiasm not only helps our team in the game, it also tells ESPN and the rest of the country something strong about our fan base... huge for perception, $$, and can help us get these marquee big stage matchups in the future without having to rely on favors from friends of Turge (Cal/Turge) to get these games.
Now to tickets, there are still over 1k good(some great prices as well) seats available on stubhub alone. I should have done my part earlier stress/push this, but there's still time to represent guys. If you can manage it (work/school) get your asses up there. I want us to own that arena, roaring at every opportunity... it will make a difference! Honestly im almost tempted to pay every terp fan who purchases a ticket in the next 2 days 5 bucks a piece and hope to pay 1k fans. Let's not let Kentucky fans end up with these tickets, plan carpools, convince your friends, sell it! Let's do what we have to do to get as many Terps in Brooklyn as possible. Need the visitor side loaded with red.
Other important notes... I'm not sure this is our best time to do the vulgar chants, probably counterproductive (perception). We want to make an impression, but the right one. Non-vulgar should be loud and consistent. I feel like we should be planning some of this ahead of time (already). So what is everyone thinking for chants, lets get everyone on the same page. What do you think??? Let's get this ball rolling boys and girls!
