Holy. Crap. What a crowd tonight. Hope we were loud.

WT/LT was just amazing. I'm mad though because right when I was about to start it someone else did :(

The crowd was great And the O-zone was great. My only feedback - the WT/LT chant started just a bit too early. Early with just under a minute left and not a fully baked cake yet - and early as Brown was at the FT line - not good time for a loud potentially distracting chant...

Great turnout and engagement. Looked like lots of fun down there.

You want WT/LT to be under 30 seconds ideally. I remember a few where we did it too early with the opponent still playing the fouls game and/or calling timeouts. You want that chant to be the last memory from gameplay.

In the first half when we got down, but made shots to cut it to five, three, two, I thought the ensuing possessions were a little calm, on my end, watching a stream where there's no crowd mic. It wasn't until we finally tied the game at 35 that I noticed the students really getting loud. Those defensive possessions should have the OOOOO or a resounding DEFENSE and even generic "Let's Go Bobcats" on the offensive possessions give the team a good pickup when they need to get the lead back. Maybe you did try some of that stuff and it was noticeable in the building. Just my observation from the couch.

Will note that on WT/LT and defensive / offensive possessions. thought we could be louder at those moments.

I have to say....watching the game last night and seeing the student section rock damn near made me shed a tear. I mean that. I love OHIO and I miss all the drives down 32 but man last night was awesome to see on TV. FWIW - send a big thanks to all the folks in the student section who are taking back the title of "Best Fans in the MAC" from the pretenders. Always a shout out to those in the community that get to the games as well. What a great atmosphere. The team will continue to flourish under JB and this will make for some great entertainment.

I will pass the word along! Hoping to garner a few interested kids in going to the MAC tournament and MAYBE NIT games. I'm seriously looking at going to the tourney.

I would highly recommend it! Its always a fantastic atmosphere with lots of Bobcats in attendance. Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse is also a top tier venue after the remodel. I'm planning on making it up for the semi's and championship.

It's looking like I will be in the Akron area for part of that week! I'm asking around to see if anyone else is interested in going.

I can only tell you the MAC Tournament is where our fans show their worth. Some of the best sporting events in my lifetime happened in the MAC Tournament. If you have not been, it is a must.

I have reserved the opportunity to get tickets through the AD. If I get chosen I'm 100% going

Looking back on the WT/LT, idk if a member of the band was fed up with me waiting until the thirty second mark and just started it out of spite. Next time going to communicate "I'm going to start Winning Team Losing Team after these free throws." if it happens to go like that again. Still mad, communicated I would do it at thirty seconds and at least one guy didn't seem to listen to me.
