I love your enthusiasm! I hope you're right!

Last BU/TT game I went to in Waco, TT fans came out in force. They were everywhere and very loud. Baylor fans better show up to support the team! Make it a home court advantage.

Sic 'em!

Who watched Wisconsin upset Michigan today? A rowdy home crowd carried Wisconsin to the win. That's what the Baylor men need from the fans today!

I suppose the strong showing is because of the TT campus at MCC?

Tech is an interesting matchup because they're not great offensively. They're an elite defensive team, but they struggle to put teams away. Unless we just go through an ungodly dry spell offensively that allows them to pull away early, I would expect this one to be competitive throughout.

Even when the Ferrell Center is filled with Baylor fans they aren't this loud. Everyone just sits on their hands.

It's half off at Papa John's today, so they will all have to go back to work at halftime.

Typical weak ass fan base showing for us. Zero home-court advantage

Which is why we should shrink the new arena to 4K or 5K because there's just not much interest in basketball.

Why do we start every game so poorly?
