It was only the first game in our season of away "Home" games. This thread is NOT about the game or the team but rather the event of our first "Home" game.
1. The band and cheerleaders tried hard to make it feel like home.
2. The UCLA logo at center court, the videos on the scoreboard etc we designed to make it feel like a home game.
1. Too much piped in music: it became quite annoying late in the game. It was an exciting game (even if it shouldn't have been) but because of the music our band could not play nor could the cheerleaders lead cheers. In the last 7:00 minutes every break in the action was dominated by piped in music. I am worried that the sites do not understand what is fun about college games.
2. Very few students: I hope that is because of San Bernadino and will be better at the Sports Arena. But very few students (whole sections were empty).
3. An "emcee" that was quite annoying and seemed to try to take over for the yell leaders.
Hopefully it will get better as we get closer to "home."
