I don't think he's talking about the crowd being docile - I think he was just telling his team not to be intimidated by the size - sort of like Hoosiers when they measure the dimensions of the court.
but I still think we should try to get louder and more intimidating in there. I just don't like the number of teams that say it wasn't too bad being infront of the largest crowd in the country.
Glock 40 outs instead of Maize outs?
M fans could take a page from the PSU fan book. Those guys support their team en masse in the stadium, and it is clearly displayed for all to see.
I often wish we had half the solidarity in the stands PSU does. That kind of support could do anything but help they guys on the field.
When PSU went through its stretch of losing seasons earlier in the decade, their stadium stopped selling out and those who did come often booed. Their fans' newfound loyalty has neatly coincided with their football team's resurgence.
