Hey Frank, don't want piss poor attendance, don't schedule piss poor teams, and certainly don't lose to any piss poor teams. The women are getting fan support...why? They are good and play some pretty good teams also.

Oh lord. The opponent shouldn't matter if you really want to support the program. That's just more BS logic for fans to avoid coming to games.

I repeat, there's a Final 4 Banner in the rafters. A FINAL FOUR BANNER. Nobody in their wildest freaking dreams would have ever thought that would be possible for the MBB program. Fans have no more excuses to not show up to basketball games. Frank did his part, you do yours or Frank will eventually leave for a bigger program and we'll be back to Darrin Horn-level coaches.

I was there last night and it was definitely disappointing to see the crowd the way it was. I know the weather was bad and it was Wyoming but still. We should have more people in the seats then we've had so far this season.

I seriously think frank is gonna leave at the end of the year, no doubt he will have options. The guy goes 51-20 over a two year span and has to play in front of 4000 people, I get itís Wyoming but if you bought season tickets use them. This is the second presser that heís mentioned the fan support, Itís pitiful.

He did say they played defense pretty good in the first half, but not in the second half. He said he is either going to fix the problems, or they are going to bury him! The guys should get ready for a couple of rough days of practice before the game on Saturday!
He said the last few days he has had more blood on the court than ever before in his coaching career and that it would continue because he wasn't going to have a soft team.

Hopefully fan support will pick up. I know we haven't become spoiled already. But I saw Frank looking around at the crowd Saturday. I felt he was trying to estimate the attendance. Then Wednesday seem like the crowd was more scarce. Sad thing is, I saw a few Wyoming fans!! If some of you season ticket holders don't want to go to certain games you can always donate to Vet Tix. I'm sure there's a few Gamecock fans that are veterans and would love to go.

People have to realize that attending a sporting event is for your own personal ENTERTAINMENT and it's not a job. You can't whine about attendance or try bullying people to make them show up. Put a good product on the floor and they will hopefully want to show up, but as a coach, that is all Frank can really do.

Frank may eventually bail on us, but if he does, I hope he realizes that there are only a handful of fan bases that are really crazed enough to be there no matter the day of the week or the opponent. Seriously, there aren't that many Kentucky, Dukes, North Carolina's and K States around and he freely chose to leave K State.

Let's also be honest here.... those talking about tickets..... basketball tickets aren't that expensive, so I doubt many people don't go simply because of the ticket prices.

I dunno, our fans do normally go to stuff we're even remotely good at. I mean look at baseball and women's hoops for pete's sake. It's probably the marketing or the crappy opponents.

Attendance is and has been poor in pre SEC weekday games for a long time, don't see this changing anytime soon, wish it would.

Except for some careless TOs I thought our overall play was good. I am looking for a better season than what was projected for us. We are a young team and have some good looking young players. Frank is never completely satisfied and that is good. He is one heck of a coach.

Actually, I think its the opposite; if tickets were really expensive, we wouldn't sell as many, but people would definitely show up to get their money's worth.

There are far far far more MBB programs at the highest levels than there are CFB programs, and a ton of them fill their arenas for every game. They may not have 18K capacity arenas like CLA, but a 8K-10K smaller arena that's at full capacity with rabid, screaming fanbases, versus a 18K arena that's 25% full of fans that typically aren't that loud per capita anyways is no comparison.

IMO Coach Martin has already proven he can build the program into a winning program, so the fans should come to the games, regardless of the competition. I don't mean sell out a OOC game like Wyoming on a mid-week night, ( 2 of the 3 home games thus far in CLA have been on Wednesday nights) but certainly better than what went.

I'll be there Saturday for the Coastal Game.....

It's definitely not a job, but an SEC school coming off a Final 4 visit should not have 4000 people in the crowd for any game during their season. It's complete BS.

If you won't show up for a team with that type of success, then what will you show up for? That's probably what Frank Martin is thinking. He shouldn't have to beg people to show up for games like Darrin Horn did. The marketing department shouldn't have to offer free pizza and wings to students to come to games. He shouldn't have to schedule a game against the top team in college. People should just go to the games.

What do you say about an ACC school, say, North Carolina being the defending national champions and having similarly bad attendance vs. WCU this week?

How far can you be expected to drive to attend a midweek game? 90 minutes one way? An hour? Two hours? I don't know the answer, but I would guess that anyone that wants to come and lives within an hour of Columbia might show up.

Its a bit hard for people who work until five and have to drive an hour or more to get to a game. It can be done, but it isn't easy.

Are there enough students and people who live within 30 minutes of the CLA to get a crowd of 10,000?

You nailed it Thumpin.

A Basketball night game during the week is a totally different deal than a Saturday football game. Football games are all day events with the tailgating and longer games.

Traveling to Columbia during a work week for a two hour game is tough. I have done it, but it takes some dedication.
