    Default USD men at Pentagon

    USD's schedule came out and they play a game at the Pentagon this season. Kind of odd that its a conference game vs Omaha in February. Why would you want to do that if youre USD?

    So money is more important to them than the homecourt advantage plus how many students would drive to SF to watch it? Unless its a long weekend and they figure there wouldnt be many students at the game.

    They played a football game against the Bison at Howard Wood a few years ago. "I thought that went well!"

    *start smack* Perhaps they think it's the only way they will have a game in Sioux Falls this season? *end smack*

    It has to be someone in the athletic department's way of trying to gain a fanbase in the Sioux Falls area. WOuldn't it be fun if we could get a ton of Jackrabbit fans at the game and cheer for Omaha?

    We can't even get a lot of Jack's fans to the Pentagon to cheer on the Jack's.

    I'm surprised the Jacks have not been able to sell out the Pentagon for the games played in that venue. I think its a fun place to watch the game as you are right on top of the action and not a bad seat.

    Wasnt there a football playoff game before the Pentagon game last year? Im sure a lot of people didnt want to do both. But then there wasnt many at the football game either. Ive gone to all of the Pentagon games. Its usually against a decent mid major.

    This is kind of smack and kind of not.

    This doesn't surprise me at all. Outside of the SDSU games, the crowds for the games at USD were really sparse. They only had 2,206 show up on a Saturday against their other "rival" NDSU. Against a team like Omaha they probably aren't looking at a big gate.

    So, why not "showcase" USD away from Vermillion for a night and try and make it a big deal? Will be interesting to see how it turns out for them.
