What Booing?

Everybody seems to want to chime in on some booing during the Syracuse game, even basketball coach Rick Pitino. WDRB-TV’s Bill Lamb actually did an editorial.

Huh? Makes you wonder how many of these folks were actually at the game. From where I sat, there probably were a few boos here and there. Out of a crowd of almost 41,000 people, there may have been a couple of thousand people booing for brief periods.

It was a smattering of boos at most. It wasn’t the first time and it won’t be the last time. Some fans, no matter which team they follow, just can’t control themselves. Nothing to get alarmed about.

As for all the people who left the stadium in the second half, I wouldn’t read too much into it. I wasn’t among them. It was 95 degrees and our team looked awful. Why stick around and be miserable. I would never leave because there’s no place I would rather be than at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium.

    I understand why people want to boo. With that being said, they should still refrain from it. I can definitely see how it hurts recruiting. Of course Pitino would be against it. He would never want to be booed in Freedom Hall; thanks Coach Obvious. I jokingly booed near the end of the Murray State game because UofL went SOOOO conservative, and I’M A MURRAY STATE STUDENT!!!
