That would be a full glass. Something pretty strong.

Manek has turned it up.... Getting more help from Harmon, kur, and Williams. The problems of a few months ago might not be problems today.

This team could go on a run.

Big problem that has shown no sign of going away is the guards' inability to make 3's.
Big problem that may have been solved, the guards aren't shooting as many 3s. It seems Lon finally clamped down on them. (only shot 4 against WVU Saturday).

I hear you, but I don't think the number of OU fans will be that much larger than in Norman, and the loss of familiarity with the home court overrides (in my view) any minor bump in attendance.

The game being in a larger arena may help Tech more than OU -- they traveled very well to Austin a few days back, and I imagine they'll do the same to OKC.

This is correct. They have had a bunch of focus groups regarding attendance at the LNC and a lot of the complaints from the OKC crowd involve getting down to Norman on a work night. So, they've moved a couple of games downtown and......they get the same number.

They are trying anything to improve the attendance. But you're going to have to win a bunch of games to move the needle anymore. The Thunder gobbled up all the fans on the periphery. There are 5,000 who are die-hard attenders, but the 2,500-4,000 who used to be 50-50 are in the Thunder's corner now.

I agree with all of this. The lnc has different sight lines than the peake. That plus the additional 7,000 tickets available could make this a “road” game if those 7,000 go to tech fans
