|The Students are NOT the Problem|
Last night's despicable Showing is proof that some type of action needs to be taken by the powers that be at Villanova to improve the atmosphere on campus. I have some suggestions:
- Increase student ticket allocation- The fact that less than a quarter of Villanova undergrads are able to attend a given on campus game is pretty crappy. 1,500 students is not nearly enough in a crowd of 6,500. I'm sure that students would be willing to pay for tickets if they were guaranteed a better shot at getting them through the lottery.
- Move the student section- The obvious model here is Duke. Why is Cameron Indoor Stadium so tough for road teams? One of the reasons is that Duke is generally pretty good on the court, but the fact that the student section is right on top of the action cannot be understated. Villanova should do the same thing. I know that there is a risk of pissing off some alumni, but the students are the most important part of the deal, both on the court and in the stands.
- Sell Alcohol- Not going to happen, but it would work!
