Raising Arizona

Here’s an interesting story from a Tucson newspaper about how Arizona is trying to get its students more involved as spectators at its basketball games. As one who has been to Arizona a few times for hoops games, I can confirm that while the crowd is loud and boisterous, it’s always felt almost like an NBA game because the students seem so non-existent.
This may indeed be bad news for visiting teams to Tucson. But as one who believes that college sports should first and foremost be for the college students, I kind of like this move.
