    I watched that game. Made me want to go to Utah St.

    I live in the Mountain West Conference portion of the country–they need to add Utah State. That is a great atmosphere for college basketball.

    “This is what college basketball is all about.” – love that line from the announcer. lol

    Looks like a fun crowd and worth the price of admission.

    Utah State has a top 5 student section in the nation. really do, if you ever catch them on tv WATCH THAT GAME. regardless of how the game is going their student section is always a riot.

    I live in Logan and the USU student section is incredible. I watched their game against NMSU from the press box, and it was the best atmosphere for a college game I’ve seen. If you got a chance to see the game last night you could see how merciless the student section is. I especially enjoy the “winning team/losing team” chant.

    That is freaking GREAT!!! Someone at UK needs to start doing the Shriek version of this and the first one should be Puss-n-boots.

    I just forwarded the video to the Dir of Marketing at Mountain West Conference. Seriously, MWC declined inviting this school to join? They have a decent football team as well…

    Funnier the first time on Deadspin. At least give credit for stealing links.

    12. I don’t think I would call USU’s football team decent. They have been terrible for a while. But the fan support is decent, and at least as good as Wyoming and UNLV. USU should have gotten an invite. How can you not have at least one school from Utah in the Mountain West? Seems bizarre.

    I think the singing really did get to the shooter. I bet that would bother most free throw shooters more than all the yelling and hand waving that you usually see. Good idea!

    Oh and Dave (13), shut the f*ck up. Do you not realize that almost EVERY link on the internet is linked from somewhere else??? If your just here to b*tch about petty sh*t like that, then LEAVE. It gets really annoying seeing all these idiots get on here just to complain about the writers. Like I said before, if you don’t like it, don’t read it. CATS!!!

    ugh, clips like this reinforce how LAME RUPP ARENA IS…unless it’s a huge game(and even sometimes then), it’s the most overrated “intimidating atmosphere” possibly in all of college sports…and it looks even worse (more quiet) on tv…such a joke. but like my man scarface said, money make the world go round.

    My guess is when the “Tea Pot” bent over to pour, he may have shown some cleavage and THAT made him miss… But that is HILARIOUS….Come on ERUPTION ZONE don’t miss out on a great thing.

    That has to be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. The eruption zone needs to come up with something like this but totally different. Need to use our imagination, certaintly don’t want to be accused of stealing an idea. We get accused of to many other things.

    I think at the Tennessee game we need to get a really fat guy and give him a good spray tan and use that to make fun of Pearl somehow. Maybe make him really orange an dress him up as a cell phone or a have him serving grilled hamburgers or something.

    That is one of the best things I have ever seen. I am pulling for Utah State to host every single NCAA Tournament game from this point on.

    The main problem with Rupp Arena and having ideas and familiar faces like this is that the lottery does not allow that consistency of the same students and groups of people. This guy gets to go to every game at Utah State and all the students that want to attend are most likely guaranteed a spot in that section. That doesn’t happen at UK. Thus, you have veteran student fans and rookies who don’t know how to act. Just sayin’
