announced 5,601 but digman estimated about 3,000 butts in seats. I just want this team to reel off 4 straight wins to open conference play and then to see if Moody is packed when Houston comes to town. If we can't support the program at that point, it would be a very sad commentary on just how pathetic our fan base really is. Even 5-6,000 SMU fans in Moody can get really loud and give this team the home court advantage it needs.
