Will wade show.. basketball traditions
He was asked if the players could sing the alma mater with the students after games? He said he’s working with the marketing department since we don’t have basketball traditions like football. What would you suggest? And, what would you want them to bring back? I always wanted to see the deaf dome meter again. Also, students dress up.

Reconfigure the seating and move the students where they were 05-09

Have them come up with some shite to yell during the game so it doesn't sound like an empty gym in the 1st half.

Newspapers during opponents starting lineup. Make our inroductions short and simple. Get rid of that long, boring intro video they have now that complete kills any buzz thats in the pmac. Gold jerseys more often.

Every home game should be like Halloween for the students.

After wins, the team should be prepared to throw them some candy.

The students were moved because they stopped coming to the games

the marketing department needs to watch other major college basketball games to get an idea of what needs to happen during games. I would really like to help them out with this because it's absolutely brutal.

perfect example:

early in the game Tuesday night, we went on a mini run and caused Avery Johnson to call a timeout. the fans started to stand and yell/clap.

at that moment, let DJ C-mix crank up a song to get people going (he's got a bunch of them). but what did LSU do? they made everyone be quiet for a fricking bird box challenge. they are totally fricking clueless when it comes to the gameday atmosphere.

The newspaper during the opponents starting lineups was an LSU tradition for years. Problem now, is there still a student newspaper to grab walking in? Haven't they stopped printing the reveille?

There was also several students dressed like refs doing the blind routine. That may be considered politically incorrect now.

but it's not like everyone else started coming. Should have just made it smaller until demand warranted it to be bigger. I think other motives were the athletic department's reason for the move. Better seats at higher prices for the $$$ from ticket holders.

re: Will wade show.. basketball traditions
I went to all the games as a kid:

1) newspapers during opposing team intro then throw then ball them up and toss them on the court.

2) deaf dome meter - may be depressing now though

3) Mike the tiger dropping from the rafters.

A pregame highlight reel dating back to Petit and maravich through current players would be awesome.

Maybe Wade can get some professors involved. Not schedule tests the next day on game day type stuff. Few Bonus points for going to games maybe. He could simply blast an email to the entire faculty humbly requesting this and I bet a lot would do it. I remember i used to do absolutely every bonus point in every class if I could.

re: Will wade show.. basketball traditions
another one...

can we please stop with the stupid "light em up" iPhone schtick? holy shit, that is cringeworthy and terrible.

also, hate to say it, but Dan Borne doesn't fit the mold of a typical basketball announcer. personally, I'd prefer Bill Franques.

Newspapers for sure. I like the Alma mater after the game idea. Like someone else said, learn how to run a game atmosphere. Don't have people quiet down to hear a list of sponsors when the other team calls a timeout to stop a run. Do they still do free tacos for 80 points?

Ditch the white uniforms and wear gold uniforms for every home game.

I was really surprised they wore white the other night for the "gold game".

Bring back the dunking Mike logo, at least as an alternate logo, or on the warmups.
