Re: The Optimist, January 14 “Students should support sports” by Kyle Robarts, sports writer
Thank you so much for this article. I sometimes feel like my sister and I are the only ones yelling at the boys’ basketball games. And my husband, when he gets to come.
I, too, was at the Arkansas game, and I had the same thoughts you did. I know the old argument on both sides: If the team did better, the fans would show up; if the fans came to the game, the team would do better.
I think in this instance, the basketball team has improved over the past three years, but I’ve not seen the fans improve much. Maybe that would help the basketball team some.
It would be fun to see what would happen. At any rate, I again thank you for your concern and the article.
