    Playing in front of student sections

    I'm a believer that visiting teams should not have to play in front of the home teams student sections. I think it's an advantage for the home teams.

    Anyone else agree/disagree?

    Not trying to cast judgment, but to be clear, you think student support at the game should be eliminated?

    The NCAA should just set up db meters near the court and if the level reaches 86db or above (anything above 85 is deemed harmful to the ears) the home team should be penalized. That should take away any chance of a home court advantage as well as protect everyone's hearing.

    Isn't that the point of home games?

    I am having a hard time taking this thread seriously. We are joking, right?

    I think visiting teams should have the opposite goal away from student sections. Yes it does play a role in missing shots, FT, he with turnovers.

    Student support should be allowed at all the games but their sections needs to be at the opposite end of the visiting teams goal.

    Teams shoot at each goal--one in the first half and the other in the second half--so we'll have to move all the students to the other end during halftime. Shouldn't be a problem though.

    I'd argue Kentucky does it wrong at Rupp. The visitors shoot in front of the students in the first half. I think I think it would be more effective to force them to shoot in front of the students in the second half.

    Personally, I think there should be students on all 4 sides of the court going as wild as possible for the entire game.

    Let's just ban cheering at games. I'd hate to hurt the visiting team's feelings.

    I thought they already did at Rupp, at least in the lower arena.

    2nd half games I've seen had the visiting teams shooting in the goal in front of the home teams student sections
