A lot of folks on scoop love to assume things and have no problem running with assumptions.

One assumption that cracks me up is that you Mrs. 4ever never leave Mequon and stay clear of downtown MKE. Little do they know.

I wouldn't.  It's ten times better watching in person.  Granted, I have good seats (season tickets), but being there is a whole different, and greater, experience than TV.

Now, if we're talking about the last 10 rows of the upper levels, then yes, you have a point.

Hey, my season tickets are at midcourt in Row 5 of the upper level. There are only 10 rows in the section. The experience from there is just fine. With my low priority status (I’m not an alum and don’t make contributions to the MU Athletic Department except for the cost of the tickets) I can’t get better seats. I prefer the midcourt view to a lower endzone or corner seat, and I would have to pay significantly more to get those.

Many posters are struggling to keep 4ever’s story straight, one of those posters is 4ever himself.

I have no problem trying to keep tabs on 4evers posts, but I am also not trying find reasons to attack every post from 4ever.

One comment on the crime part of this thread, anyone that says they are not concerned about crime in downtown MKE (FF) I think is not being 100% truthful, and anyone who avoids going to games because of potential crime is missing out on a great time.

I think MU’s attendance is going to continue increase next year. Provided they have a nice run in March, this team has brought in, or back, a lot of casual fans. Great style of play and winning will fill the seats.

#9 UCLA playing in a largely empty Pauley Pavilion.

Well that area is pretty crime ridden. People are probably terrified to go to Westwood area. One time I saw ford bronco.

I'm terrified of MKE...it's only 92 miles from Chicago.

I drive to games from an hour north of MKE...never anything for serious traffic...park a few blocks from the arena for free....eat dinner for WI prices...watch a superb MU team...drive home with no traffic. 

Pro's and con's to large cities...but a family member of mine in a $2.5 million Glencoe home just had their home burglarized...for the 2nd time in 3 years.

Bottom line is this team hasn’t won an NCAA tourney game in years. Win a few over the next few years and that will do more to get butts in seats than anything else being proposed here.

And despite that, MU's attendance numbers are better than most.

I work in Glencoe and the downtown could not be more quiet and well-policed. Despite this, there have been break-ins at multiple local businesses. Recently, the pharmacy at the Walgreens had thousands of dollars of medicine stolen.

The focus on attendance is a little silly. We typically are top 20-25 every year. The program has historically average double digit attendance. The overwhelming majority of division 1 CBB teams would love our situation.

Jeesh ... when did Glencoe move to downtown Milwaukee?

If only Glencoe had moved to where Concordia is, there'd never be any crime there.

They can take the bus.

How many cities the size of Milwaukee have subway/light rail service?

Quite a few actually. Not arguing for or against. But there's a decent amount. All of these cities have light rail lines:

Portland
St. Louis
Salt Lake City
Sacramento
Pittsburgh
Baltimore
Minneapolis/St Paul
Buffalo
Kansas City
Cleveland
Detroit

That's just true light rail lines. I'm not even counting streetcars, which include a bunch more (New Orleans, Tuscon, Memphis, Cincinnati, etc.)

Portland - 1.0 million more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee
St. Louis - 1.3 million more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee
Salt Lake City - smaller than Milwaukee metro
Sacramento - 800K more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee
Pittsburgh - 800K more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee
Baltimore - 1.2 million more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee
Minneapolis/St Paul - 1.5 million more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee
Buffalo - smaller than Milwaukee metro
Kansas City - 800K more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee
Cleveland - 500K more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee
Detroit - 2.8 million more people in the metropolitan area than Milwaukee

That's just true light rail lines. I'm not even counting streetcars, which include a bunch more (New Orleans, Tuscon, Memphis, Cincinnati, etc.)

Most of those cities have a fairly larger metro area and population than Milwaukee.

Milwaukee does have a streetcar, and nobody uses it.  It was totally pointless.  And there are buses without much overcrowding for those who need to use public transportation.  There's not really a need for a light rail in Milwaukee.  You can drive anywhere and find parking anywhere pretty easily at pretty much any time of day and year.

That is, if you don't get shot.

I think the metro thing isn't exactly apples to apples. Many of these rail lines do not go far out into the suburbs. Although some do. Milwaukee as a city is bigger than many of these, such as St. Louis.

My point was that Milwaukee would not be an outlier if it had light rail. It is actually an outlier by not having one.

I don't have a strong opinion on it. I don't even live in Wisconsin.
