Wisco? Florida? Colorado? Even better: does any college team have
any events that are somewhat heavily attended by fans?

The 2000 UCSB Black Tide had quite a group of parents and friends at
Nationals as you can see in the photo at the bottom of this web page:

Thanks, but I'm looking for fans we can expect to see this year. A
team, tourney, or rivalry that creates something of a campus event.

I think Wisco has a very dedicated fanbase year in and year out. They
always make a showing at natties.

I'd agree - Wisco.

I'd put Colorado second.

i'm thinkin that the only way you are gonna be able to create that
kind of atmousphere would be to have "one game events".....and heavily
market them. I'm thinkin a midweek uncw vs ecu night game in the
soccer stadium with all the bells and whistles might create a little
buzz.

tournaments just seem to long and overwhelming to really generate and
maintain a crowd.

When Stanford played Cal in the showcase game at Stanford Invite last
year (in our football stadium), we marketed it as a once-off event to
people on campus and had 500+ people come to the game. We had the
lights on, announcers, the Stanford band, and it was awesome playing
in that kind of atmosphere.

I remember having to ride all the way to Princeton one year for
College Regionals, musta been 91? Princeton was considered good, I
guess. They came out all cocky, one of their jackass players riding
around our team warmups and shit on a bike with a big grin on his
face. Thought he had something. He didn't.

They had LOADS of rich parents out there that day. LOADS. We played
them in the final, musta beat them like 21-7 or so. I mean crushed
'em. Back in the day when Finals were played out to 21!!! A man's
game. ON their turf. We had them and their parents backed off the
sidelines 3-5 yards I'd say. Scared the piss outta them with all our
hair and screaming (at ourselves, tuff love style). Fuck home field
advantage. Either you got it, or you don't. Turn their house into your
own!

I was truly impressed with the Hodag fan support at College Nationals
the year Heijman became Calladan.

Baby blue shirts all around with, I think, "Hodag Love" printed on
them. Lots of parents, siblings, family present, and it looked like
friends as well. Helped that it was in Columbus, as it is again this
year.

Regardless of whether you were rooting for or against them, it was
really great to see that type of fan dedication and support, and made
Dan's Callahan win that much better with his entire family there to
congratulate him.

It also added some feeling of legitimacy to the event, to see parents
willing to make that trip, to acknowledge the importance of frisbee in
their kids' lives (not just some frivolous endeavor), and to support
it wholeheartedly.

Pretty cool.

thats what i'm talking about. tournaments themselves would be even
more interesting if the were smaller and in single illim formats. in
which there was alot of rivalry type (inter conference...like accuc)
comp. Thats the real way to grow the kind of support that kevin , i
think, is talking about I guess what i'm trying to say is that you
could have achieved that same campus support had it of been just a two
team/one game event (aside from the other participants that may or may
not of had an impact.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

---the year the UNCW won the biggest upset in college nationals
history in Boston....
Carleton had a HUGE following.
of course, they were the #1 seed and were expected to win nationals
easily.

that was a huge hugely disappointed crowd.

it was awesome!
2001, right?

I believe Carleton was the #4 seed that year, with UCSB the #1 seed.
But yes, they had a very large group of fans.

Is one game enough time to perve on dancin' girls and drink some
beer?

Seriously though, whats wrong with the qualify on saturday, big event
on sunday format?
Every time I go watch a tournament I'm not playing in, I'm usually
wondering where the vendors are.

seems to be enough for other sports.....and it was all the stanford
crowd seemed interested in (one game). Ever herd the saying "less is
more"? I'm pretty sure it would apply here.

too long to maintain the type of crowd you want Of course you could
have that set up and simply market the "big event on sunday".......but
you have no guarantee that the home team will even be playing in it.
So why would the home crowd go watch a game in which their tewam isnt
playing???
------------------------------------------------------------ -------------------------------------

but how often (or beter yet, SELDOM) is that?
------------------------------------------------------------ ------------

yep, this is yet another one of the "bells" that comes with organized
sports presentations that ultimate hasent grasped (although i'm sure
there are various random events that provide that facilitation
enhancement)...........not to mention takin advantage of that
capitolistic opportunity.

even with the concept of vendors though, the "single game" format
(with a large crowd) is gonna be a much more appealing "business"
opportunity for ANY vendor as he/she can spend only a few hours making
the same amount of money it would have otherwise taken a whole weekend
to make. And this same concept applies to the people that attend that
are there to consume the "sports entertainment" aspect of the "show"
too. Like they say "no show, no business".

So UNCW played a few games to 21 back in '91, huh?

not sure of the score, although i think that is right (may have even
been 90 or 92), but when you put a beat down on someone, timecap
doesn't/didn't come into play.
