|Many of these seats did eventually fill . . .|
There weren't too many people there when we arrived, just before the women tipped off. We weren't surprised by that, but we were surprised how few Baylor fans were there. I would estimate that of the 10,000 or so fans, some 75% of them were wearing Kentucky blue. Not only do their fans always travel well, I figure if they drove or flew hundreds of miles to see their teams play, a little ice wouldn't keep them trapped in a hotel room.
Configured for football games, AT&T can seat 80 or 90 thousand fans, so the crowd, which would have nicely filled the Ferrell Center, seemed even smaller. Adding to that, the opposite seats weren't used, making it seem even emptier.
It's too early in the season to tell if Baylor has what it takes to play at this stadium again. I would love to see them her in the Final Four! But this was a big step for Baylor. This #3 Kentucky team is the highest-ranked team Baylor has ever beaten!
It was fun running into Everett! Even it it did make me feel old, seeing my Baylor friends' son now attending Baylor. . . .
