This guy just won't shut up will he? I mean, are you serious Slingblade?!:
"I’ve never been there (to watch a game), I’ve just heard ... I don’t necessarily think there are 17,000 people who go just to watch Creighton basketball" - LJS
"I’m not sure that 17,000 fans — and I hope they would be — are basketball fans. I would think 6,000 to 7,000 are basketball fans and the other 10,000 go for the social event" - OWH
You've never been there....but you've heard about the crowds? I've heard that Doc can't run a mile without help...does that make it fact? From whom did you hear this? Steve Pederson? This guy is a piece of work....ask anyone in sports marketing and they'll tell you that up to 30% of the ANY crowd couldn't tell you the final score of the game on the way out the door. That means 30% of Husker fans don't go to the game FOR THE GAME! Just a stupid statement. How the hell does he know numbers without ever being to a GAME THERE!
Yup....mmmhhhhmmm.....I be statin' Slingblade facts....
So this year alone, Slingblade has said publicly:
1. He didn't know where CU was on the schedule
2. Then called the CU game the 17th biggest game on the schedule
3. Then says that Oregon will be the best opponent in the Qwest this year
4. Then says that Jays fans don't go for basketball and he can put a NUMBER on it.
Do you get it yet? Do you see inferiority complex he has about Creighton? Do you get that Nebraska basketball is trying SO hard to be relevant in this state. The program is an afterthought for everyone and that is not going to change for a long time. No matter how many insults Slingblade throws at CU.
