On a side note, Lew, are you graduating this year? Who takes your place when you do? It is clear that having a leader in 104 is key to making it rock. How does this work?
Our student section is so large that it is hard for us to have a full house, but I bet very few of our opponents have ever heard the noise that 4000 students can make. Getting back to those type of crowds will make Halton the toughest place in the A-10 to come play.On a side note, Lew, are you graduating this year? Who takes your place when you do?

It is clear that having a leader in 104 is key to making it rock. How does this work?There really is no system in place. The whiteboard was passed to me from NinerAlchemist (if you remember him, haven't seen him here in a while) and the student section followed. On senior night, I'll give the whiteboard to whoever I think is the most fit to take over next semester... but it is really up to him/her to step up, as well as the students as a whole to accept their new leader.edit: I also want to say, I'm not the only 'leader' in 104. It is a group effort, and I rely heavily on those who sit around me to help keep section 104 what it is. Some of them are graduating and passing the torch... but there are also plenty of younger students who are ready to step up into those positions as well.
Powerbait, go screw yourself.
My issue is not with people who wait outside for 2 days. By all means. I'm just saying it doesn't give you a right to tell me when I can cheer. It doesn't give you a right to deem what I say inappropriate when you yourself are no moral compass. And it especially doesn't give you the right to save seats for your 10 closest friends that show up 30 minutes before tipoff.
I actually think this student "leader" is taking it a little too far. The people that sit in the font row (game in and game out) seem to think that they have some kind of power over people behind them.
And no i dont need a speech about how if i show up the day before every game, skip class, and throw away my college degree, I can be part of it.
I've noticed this problem more and more every time there is another game at Halton. SOME seem to have forgotten that it is the STUDENT SECTION and 104, not #FRONTROWSTUDENTLEASERSECTION #BUS1.
I know more than one person than no longer goes to games because of this. I personally don't go to as many and now make it a point not to sit near #BUS1.
You can't make inappropriate comments all night long and then turn around and tell someone they can't do the same, or when/how it's appropriate to cheer.
Take it how you want, be mad, defend why you have this right, I Don't care, as long as you take a step back and really think about what it means to be a "student leader.".
There is a certain amount of Respect that should go with it. It's great that you can make every game. It's great that you can get there a day and a half early to make sure that no one else can sit in section 104 seat 8 and that you can say, "for 3 seasons no one else sat ther but me." It's great that the Niners have brought together 10 close friends that share loving Niner basketball. I'm happy that you experienced a special comradary with BUS1. But it doesn't make you a bigger/better/more important fan than anyone else.
Other people have things to take care of. I've seen you say, "we arent making it like that this year we invite anyone up front," in a couple places. Next game take a look around you. Its the same people that you've seen all season.
And dont tell me its because they were there first because half the seats in the first 4 rows are "saved."
these are the same people who get mad because,"the little kids got MY seat! I earned it!"
Most majors at the school are tough and require tons of work/time in the library.
Those students aren't any less of fans that you are and deserve no less respect.
At what point does it stop becoming about glorifying the school and more of the legacy you left?
PS It's ok if a chant doesn't start from the front of 104. They sound just as good. Don't look so mad when they don't start there.
Duke Students camp out as a way of life, and it's the norm. Charlotte students think we are crazy because we camp out, and get angry because they don't want to camp out. We are camping for the same reason.
