The UNC game is on ESPNU; with a national TV audience, they're undoubtedly desperate to put a favorable image in front of the cameras.

Good they should be doing things like this. But students should also just want to be at the game without and prodding

If we win, they're probably so stupid they'll storm the court.

This new version of BC Student is ill-informed

Until there is real student demand and excitement, we should nix one of the student sections behind the basket. It's no coincidence that the two largest and most engaged crowds this season came when the students were off campus and the ticket office was able to sell those sections to the public and to donate tickets to youth groups.

BC Athletics can probably generate MORE revenue MORE excitement and MORE tv-viewing respect (in this regard more doesn't mean a whole lot). AND we'll get a better performance from a team that is thrilled to play in front of other humans.

Here's another idea -- after the first tv timeout at 16 minutes, sound a horn and give everyone the green light to move down and fill the empty first tier seats -- if you show up late and there's someone in their seat....tough luck. Lucky for you it's an open free for all so you'll be able to find seats. And you'll probably endeavor to be on-time next time or at least you'll understand the consequences.

If we don't want to piss off season ticket holders at least consider doing the same with the student sections.......

Crazy, drastic measures -- but I'm ready for crazy and drastic........And more nutty ideas?

Here's one -- don't include UNC and Duke in student packages. The only way to get those tickets is through some kind of documented attendance at earlier games......let's eliminate the incentive to buy tickets and not show up. Gotta flip it -- show up in order to earn your right to show up for the big games.......

Our students suck

I don't fault the general student body pink hats as they will have gone their 4 years without BC even making the tournament (unless we win the acc tourney ool), but there should be 200 non nerds who can make it to a basketball game

As for the ideas, I agree one side should be students and the other local schools. The horn idea, while good IWNH.

The ticket office is selling non-student tickets to the UNC game for $30. They are delusional. I got a ticket to the NC State game outside Conte for $10, and that was on a Saturday afternoon. I'll get into this game for $10, too.

They 'offered' duke tickets to football season ticket holders for $40 (plus 10 in fees), I declined

Been to about half the home game and never paid more than 10

I especially enjoyed the "5-Time NCAA Champions" note below UNC's logo.

If the Chicago Bucket Boys halftime performance doesn't have them coming in droves, I don't know what will. Isn't this roughly the equivalent of Grill 23 featuring an exotic sampling of Chi-Chi's finest?

Unless percussion music is the latest craze with 18-22 year olds, this is a waste of marketing/promotional resources of GDF-ian proportions.

Is it your contention that they are receiving more compensation than quiet clapping from bewildered whalepants? Is it more or less than a value meal at Arby's? Isn't Quincy Market picking up the travel costs for their joint venture with the "we ain't got guns" street dance troup anyway?

The bar for halftime entertainment at college basketball games is pretty low. Last year I went to the UVA-UNC game and enjoyed the antics of LeBronco James, Mia Hammster, and Shaquille O'Seal

you do realize people who have season tickets have to be reminded that they do indeed have season tickets and therefore should show up for the big games?

that's a little flaw in the master plan.

another flaw is that the unc tickets are already on general sale for students and wont sell out.

I remember doing a jig to the bucket boys outside of the TD Garden after the Antoine Walker-led celts downed the Jason Kidd-wife-beater-led NJ Nets....

BC has 2 of the top 4 in ACC players taking the highest % of their team's shots. Anderson and Hanlon combine for over 43% of shots. Ball hogs.

You know perhaps more students would go to the games if we had better seating arrangements and BC did more half time activities like bringing dancing troupes (Fuego, Sexual Chocolate, etc) to do a few routines during intermission. Also it's not very nice to insinuate that the students would storm the court for a game against UNC during a down year for them where they're only ranked 37th in the RPI with their "marque" win coming against UNLV.
