TAMU game now that they lost to Purdue. Anyone passing up on going and rather stay home and watch it on the tube.

tickets are still available, so its not a sell-out

The Aggies got caught looking ahead. It would be a mistake to allow the fizz to fade.

A&M may be the defending national champs, but Stanford was the first big game of the season and more of a rival, albeit a friendly one. If Stanford drew a shade under 14,000, I'd expect A&M to draw 12,500-13,000, regardless of Sunday's result in West Lafayette. That would be consistent with the Baylor game last year.

I think it will be an exciting game, much liek Duke last year...lots of running and points. Good game for national TV, unlike the Stanford game (which I enjoyed because UConn played great D, but that isn't usually what draws in viewers :)

where do you get your viewers count from?

I don't mean a viewer count, I just mean people that might tune in to WCBB to see two top teams play would probably rather see a higher scoring, faster-paced game than the 0-0 start of the Stanford game. We appreciate it because we watch all the UConn games, but much like the NC when we played to a 20-12 halftime score, it just isn't as exciting for viewers who watch only a few games a season.

*I am partly basing this on anecdotal evidence, namely my boyfriend who watches a few games a year with me and deems them "boring" if a bunch of layups are missed at the beginning.

I got an e-mail yesterday afternoon from the UConn ticket office. They are offering $10 tickets until 1 PM today.

EASILY this could be the end of the home winning streak, just because A&M lost to a very good Purdue team, don't think for a minute they won't be ready for tonight.

"Easily?" That's a provocative statement. Possible, of course. But "easily"? I am sure UConn will come out and fight hard in this game.

I meant I wouldn't be surprised, you are right, the wonders of message board posting, that could be read as I thought they would win easily. Sorry about that!
