Marquette hasn’t exactly killed it in their first true road games in recent seasons.

My thoughts exactly, until we start winning our first true road game, I'm just going to chalk it up as an L. 

That's also not a Shaka vs Wojo vs whichever MU coach idea, that's a CBB thing.  Throw in that Mackey is an incredibly difficult environment to win a road game at and I think the pessimism is fair.

I wouldn’t trade Fiserv for Mackey ever, but I will say this:

If you’ve ever been to a game there, it’s about as tough of a road W as there is. I was fortunate to catch a Purdue game back in the Big Dog/Cuonzo Martin era. Fans are on top of the court and sound has nowhere to go to be absorbed. Keady’s Combover isn’t exactly the ghost of Phog Allen, but when he used to glaringly hover over the sidelines, his teams had a way of responding. Matt Painter is the perfect coach for that program.

Fiserv is great, but it doesn’t provide much of a home court advantage. I’d take a 11,000 seat arena any day over it, even if it’s far worse quality.

Has there ever been a non-AQ 13 seed?

Oklahoma was a 13 seed at-large in Milwaukee in '99, and upset Arizona.

’86 UNC game at MECCA might have been the best/loudest crowd for a game I’ve been to. Doc hitting that shot to beat ND a close second.

It’s a shame that there was no crowd for the JLew tip in v. Wisky. The roof would have come off the sold out Fiserv.
It did at my house.

The UNC game was an unreal experience. The game against Russia and Al's last game might have been crazier, but all must attend games.

I think Fiserv is great. Way better than the BC. MECCA is just part of the past.

Way better than the BC. BC was bigger and way worse. Fiserv is great, but it’s too big for MUBB.

The Mecca was/is a dump. Intimate venue yes and great basketball environs due to rowdy fan behavior (and winning), of which the behavior is outlawed today (must during live play, toilet paper, obscene chants, paper machete mascot). Smoking was allowed at your seats, where the haze layer would have outed the Bradley Bat and likely killed a number of fans. Yes, you could drink beer, but in the hallway, not at your seats. The food selection was reheated hot dogs from the Bucks game.

FF is the best fan experience by far. The BC was louder because the students were seated together.  And STH's filled in behind the one basket which is important as students aren't even in session for many BE games in the expanded schedule.

Mecca was a great bandbox because of great team and brand. Those days have passed.

Post COVID, I don't know if the Fiserv fan experience is a whole helluva lot better. It was great the first two years.

The problem with Fiserv is we haven't won there. It was electric in 2018 when we were beating K-State, Wisconsin, and Buffalo. The BC was great when we were in the top-20. Fiserv can be the same.

Would a 12,000 seat on campus bandbox be great? Yes. So would me winning the lottery. But neither is happening, so let's beat people and make what we have the best it can be.

Agreed.  MU is lucky to have a state of the art facility blocks from campus that we can play in.  We win some big games there and sustain a winning tradition, the home court advantage will be there.

I think they win 21 games and at least one game in BE and NCAA. I believe that we are going to have a more up tempo pressure D than last season and will score more transition baskets off the D. They have a lot of guys that can get minutes and anxious to see who plays the lost as the season moves into Feb and March.

I will go on record today to say we beat Baylor - our defense will be closer to mid season form and we handle Baylor who won't be prepared for it.
