That gym doesn't look like it seats 4600. Looks more like a HS gym

There is. And more on the second level on the picture’s left. It is most definitely not a HS gym.

Actually, this looks to be a similar size and configuration to what we are building.

Not bad at all 8) . Speaking of first year teams; the other one in the ASUN, Northern Alabama (also a newcomer to D1) is the surprise of the year so far with a 2-1 conference record and wins over once-mighty FGCU and not-as-good-as-their-record NJIT.

Yeah, and it isn't impressive. Hopefully we'll be drawing more numbers as time goes by.

Its Definitely bigger than it looks in the pic. However they don't open that section up unless its a big game. They have, Shall we say, had a difficult time getting traction in their basketball program because of a multitude of misques by the admin and a revolving door at coach and APR issues. I'll hopefully make it to this game this week. since it is 5 min from my house.

With the amount of alum we have around Atlanta, I’d hope we could get a couple hundred fans there.

Liberty's offense is one of the most efficient in the country

Yes I have, thanks for the welcome.

Liberty has quickly become my other school I root for.

Pretty funny to hear the broadcast crew talking about McKracken. I think the play-by-play guy’s comment was, “THAT guy is drawing the ire of everyone in the arena” as the camera panned on him. :lol: :lol: :lol:

It’s half time, but the team in blue is not the LU I know. Hopefully they will improve in the second half.

Pretty brutal. Ritchie did not pull any punches in end of half interview. Hopefully, they come out strong in the second half.

Well it has to be drawing the ire of the team as they have him setting right behind the bench.

As for the game, worst performance all year. They're standing around, over dribbling/penetrating and poor positioning on defense. Hopefully we see them show up in the second half or we might see them do what our WBB team did last night and pull off the upset.

Don’t worry guys order has been restored. We are playing much better but McRacken has gotten worse. First time being in an arena where i can hear him. He’s brutal. I’m sorry I get while people dislike his gimmick. Scar made an appearance. Other than the handful of Liberty fans here this place is pretty dead.

37 points? 13 in second half. That has to be a record? I would say we took them lightly and coach kicked them in the burg at half.

On radio post game show, they said LU had good crowd of fans at game, but did not give any estimates.
