Hard to compete at basketball when you're pumping 95% of your university's resources into football.

That's not even Big-Ten-at-Football bad.

The fans won't show up until they start playing Stanford Football.

To be fair, this is the crowd for the start of Texas A&M vs. Missouri.

Believe it or not, the crowds last night for the powerhouse match-ups featuring South Carolina vs. Auburn and Vanderbilt vs. Mississippi State appeared to be even smaller.

And BTW: Matt Jones from KSR is a major tool.

He didn't have too much trouble hitting the red State Farm banners, he must be used to throwing the ball to players wearing red.

Browns QB Tanney can do it, and btw he didn't get released.

Go Bucks!

To be fair, all their sports fans were at the Big Johnson's Big Mouth Bass hand fishin tournament crushing Busch Lights in their jorts.

Such a horrible idea for the SEC to hold their conference tournament in the Atlanta Dome. If they want to hold the tournament in ATL, just play it in Philips arena. 

I've spent time in the South, I don't care what anybody says they don't have the passion for football that us Ohioans have.

There appears to be a pretty heavy concentration in the second deck, upper right.  Best seats in the house.

With that kind of attendance, a High School arena would've been largely sufficient.

They think hurry up offenses in football are too fast, can you imagine why they don't like basketball??

I'm sure Bert thinks basketball is not safe bc the offense doesnt have to wait ten seconds for the defense to get ready when they get a rebound.
