  • Finally Someone Gets it Right

    I think INSIDER is free, but if not...here's the important parts:

    1. Allen Fieldhouse Kansas
    Jayhawks' record at Allen 633-106 (.857)
    Capacity: 16,300 | Student Seating: 4,000 (24.5%)
    Student Alias: Phog Phanatics



    Surprised to see Allen Fieldhouse at No. 1? You shouldn't be. Not only is it home to the longest current winning streak in college basketball (59 games), but Bill Self is 113-6 at the Phog in his seven seasons as coach.



    Simply put, it is the perfect combo of dimension, students-to-court proximity and low-absorption materials. But if you want the down-low on KU's acoustics? Here are three factors that turn the Phog into a sonic storm:



    The Seats
    They have no padded backs to absorb the crowd clamor. The Phog is filled with aluminum bleachers that are made for stomping -- not to mention reflecting the eerie strains of "Rock Chalk Jayhawk" after yet another home W.



    The Students
    Yes, a committed student section is key. But the most thunderous undergrads won't do much good if they're stuck in the rafters while boosters schmooze politely courtside. Not only does Kansas welcome a high percentage of campus kids, it keeps them close to the action, too.



    The Ceiling
    Unlike more modern domes, the Fieldhouse roof is fairly flat and hangs relatively close to the floor. Plus, there are no sound panels attached to the ceiling. So sonic booms bounce around rather than get swallowed up.

    While simultaneously getting it wrong. KSU at 7? Maybe when they're ranked and playing KU. That place blows chaud when they're average and playing an equally average team.

        I can't speak to Bramlage too well other than what I've heard in the media

        Seems like they've been getting up for games lately...probably will be even better this year...but I remember someone writing that KSU had the best homecourt advantage in Kansas or the Big 12...that was just ridiculous

          This list should only apply to teams that can actually fill up their Midnight Madness event.

                  Why are you coming off like an uppity Cal-Berkley political science grad student in this thread?

                    Not until you make an iota of sense.
