This is slightly off topic, but I gotta throw this out there. The energy in the Schott is just pathetic. Frankly, it's pretty flat even when we're winning. Here's 2 big ideas that would help send a jolt through the fans on game day.
1) Start by lowering ticket prices. I think this is a huge factor during the first part of the season when everyone is still in football mode. Knock all upper level seats down to $5 or $10 and just fill the joint. Having some energy in the building for each and every game might actually inspire better play.
2) Get more students near the floor. This is a must. The best venues in college have a large, loud student body and our team deserves the same home court advantage every game. It makes me sick that we have one of the largest student bodies in the country, but you wouldn't know it by watching our arena.
So what if students won't buy the seats? Here's an idea, invite them in for free. Or try picking 2 or 3 different dorms every game and send busses to bring the students over. The university now forces them to live in the dorms a second year so this would be a nice gesture while helping generate more support on campus for Buckeye hoops.
Anyway, back to the coaching debate.
