Imagine how loud and fun the place could be with students all by the floor and still 24000 people at the game overall. UK should be the loudest and toughest place to play because of always having the most attendance. It's sad that it's not even close to one of the toughest though.
    And yet UK has an .894 winning percentage at Rupp. Just imagine if it were a tough place to play. By comparison, Duke has an .844 winning percentage at Cameron--which is supposed to be one of the most intimidating places to play. It is .889 under Coach K.

    I guess it's safe to assume the author of this thread doesn't approve of ASU's "Curtain of Distraction." I think it's funny as heck.

    How would you like shooting a free throw while a student is "giving birth"? This is a creative one from Sheridan HS in Ohio.
