Cameron Crazies Now On The Endangered List

It’s become as synonymous with Duke University as the phrase “fat girls” and now the Cameron Crazy seems to be dying a slow death.  Today, Duke’s student newspaper (on everyone’s bookmark list) wrote that the attendance for the Duke student section at Cameron Indoor is not only slipping, but the school is now trying to sell 300-400 of the 1200 student tickets to the general public for each game.  In fact, they’re only averaging 650 students at each game, which is somewhere around 50% capacity*.

So why is the attendance so low?  Apaprently, because too many people believe the myth:

“The rumor we’ve had to deal with over the past couple years is that it’s hard to get into games, and if you show up half an hour before tipoff you won’t get in,” Garrett said. “We’ve been trying really hard… to really debunk those rumors because they’re simply not true.”

#OccupyCameron?

*I didn’t go to Duke.  Math is hard.

    1. I care because I can’t stand the pomp Duke gets. Any reports on a potential demise of the Blue Devils is reason for celebration me.

    Cameron is the most overhyped sh*th*le in the country. Aside from Dook actually playing there, it is full of idiots who do knot know basketball, and the venue is an armpit. It does not look at all like it does on TV, and the atmosphere is stale and is less than full except for a few high profile TV games.

    I think the point is that the Duke student section is not really worth the effort of caring enough to be glad that they’re struggling. Yawn.

    Jake_GOCATS,

    Demise or not, they will still shoot the camera angles so it looks like the joint is rockin. The last time I was down there for a game, the TV guys kept filming the one wedge of people who were actually cheering, and the rest of the place was pretty tame. They do the same thing at the Final Fours these days. I have been to at least a dozen FF’s and they get more and more corporate every year.

    This would be elaborate and nearly impossible to pull off…..but how epic would it be for a bunch, and I mean BUNCH of UK fans to buy those tickets, go to the game wearing UK gear and do anti dUKe/Pro UK chants the entire time. You can’t tell me watching that game on ESPN and hearing a “WE HATE RAT FACE” chant all night wouldn’t be completely awesome.

    Wow! 650 students at each home game!! That’s awesome!!! They will have to expand Kryshiewskiville.

    Maybe the students aren’t coming because they’re tired of watching a bunch of white guys flop and take turns slapping the floor.

    Who cares? If I cared about what dUKe was doin or who shows up to the home games I’d kick my own ass. No one cares because the only students that do go just jump and yell the whole game. Students don’t go cause its annoying and very homosexual. If that makes you a good fan jumping up and down the whole game then these writers are right about us having a terrible crowd.

    They’re probably afraid they’ll get stuck sitting next to the guy with just his underwear on.How awkward would that be to watch his junk jumping up and down the entire game?

    I would think that they would just have students pick up tickets a couple days before each game, then they could sell what is left on game day. But I guess Duke is too smart to do that.

    That hairy topless person in the photo above is the hottest Duke chick I have ever seen. Trust me, they don’t get any prettier than that at Duke.
