We have a good product on the floor now. This thread is about a video, which is not a bad thing. Keep winning games and people will come, and the tip off time won’t matter to anyone.
Could not agree more..
How about we get so good we have enough big opponents coming to the DCU that we play some games in the afternoon and some at night? Maybe even have a weekend men’s/women’s basketball/hockey rumble at the DCU with our hockey east opponents a few times a year. This is to say we get our act together and join men’s HE.
The 1 PM works for me but only because the kid’s sports miraculously don’t conflict. Looking forward to it.
There’s a of noise here about the 1 pm start. Back when HC hoops was relevant, most all the Saturday games tipped off at one, and you couldn’t get a seat in the Hart if you arrived after 1. The traffic stretched from Hogan, down the hill and to the eastbound off ramp of 290. Marv Albert and Bucky Waters made appearances. We have a good product on the floor now.

My sister in law is a PC grad. She and my brother have season tickets. They give the weeknight games away because they don't want to make the seventy five minute drive, but go to the weekend games. PC plays seven games on Saturday and one on Sunday at home. The latest start is 5PM and six of them are at 12 or 2. I know that this has plenty to do with television, but they have obviously taught their fans to come during the day on Saturday. If the product is good enough, people will come. I am not suggesting HC can get PC's numbers, but I think that if we are 7-2 the first time through the league, the crowds will be there in February.
(Oh, and to connect to another thread, my brother is a UConn grad and had season tickets for a long time. He gave them up and just buys single game tickets when he wants to go. The AAC is not doing it for him and he would rather drive to Providence to see Big East games.)
