Ideas for Fixing AFH's game day atmosphere
« on: January 13, 2015, 06:53:53 PM »
Watching the hawks take on Tboone Aggie tonight and couldn't help but notice the "Stale" atmosphere at the Field House. The only time the crowd seemed to care was when they started chanting "AIR BALL" each time Forte touched the ball. KU has a great bball tradition on the floor but could really use an upgrade when it comes to getting the crowd involved.

Idea #1

Start a cheer where the Alumni yell "JAY" then the students respond back "HAWKS!". Cheerleaders could hold up signs to really get the old geezer alumni into it. Maybe they could even speed up as they do the chant so it gets going really fast and eventually the crowd just go's absolutely Bananas.

"JAY" "HAWKS" "JAY" "HAWKS" "JAY HAWKS" "JAY HAWKS" "JAYHAWKS!" "JAYHAWKS!!" "JAYHAWKS!!!"

Idea #2

Pick a song, maybe techno, maybe taylor swift. You play this song only 1 time during the game at at time out, when the crowd hears it they turn into a seething mob of lunatics.  I'm talking about 4 year olds fist pumping so hard you are concerned their arm might fall off.

The key is to save the song until your team really needs it. Good times to play it would be when the hawks need a big stop or making a comeback in the 2nd half(LOL, like they would ever be down at home).



Anyone else have any ideas?

The fans are confused by the grotesque amount of red, yellow and blue paint plastered all over the place and think they're in some kind of Oshkosh b'Gosh outlet store or something. The number of midgets ku has employed to play guard has further confused matter.

We could hold public prayer just prior to tip.  The wonders of The Lord are boundless, and their numbers untold:

Garrett said he hadn’t dwelled on the fact he had yet to score in a regular-season game as a Jayhawk. He did score two points against Fort Hays State in exhibition action his junior year.

“I don’t really even think about it,” Garrett said of being blanked until Saturday. “It’s actually funny. You can take it what it is ... Me and Perry (Ellis) pray before every game. Last night we both prayed before the Lord, (and God was) saying he is going to play good, and I was going to score. With those kind of things, you wait and see it play out.

They should replace the 4 million sheets of drywall the used to "remodel" the barn with a building material that absorbs very little sound, like corrugated steel or brass. That would help.

Just imagine your favorite announcers having this conversation.

"Coach weber calls a timeout as the hawks have taken the lead with 6:32 left thanks to a 7-0 run"....."what is that? Is that TSwift signing "shake it off"????" "Wow! This AFH crowd is goimg nuts! Traditions like this are what college bball so much fun"

It's not their fault.  Watching your team shoot more free throws than field goals is kindof boring.
