    Why do they still say the player "shot" the ball? Calls to mind violence.

    I'm ecstatic that I'll get to see the game live this year. It's worth the price of admission to avoid 2,000 gratuitous references to "the brawl" on t.v.

    I read that 14,000 tickets have been sold. Not to change the subject, but I'd also be careful calling the Freedom Center a museum that no one goes to: http://news.cincinnati.com/article/2...2160071&Ref=AR
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"

    The excitement for this weekend's Shootout is palpable. Only 6,000 tickets remain!

    Campuses or cancel!

    Ticket prices are astronomical. They're killing the Shootout.

    Good point. I stand corrected.

    It's a great rivalry.

    There's no reason to cancel it, other than the fact that fans on both sides feel smugly superior by just suggesting it.

    I don't want it cancelled. I want it moved back to campus.

    They may as well cancel it if the only alternative is playing it downtown, though.

    They probably will cancel it and they won't play it for several years. Eventually - may not be for 15-20 years - cooler heads will prevail and it'll start up again.

    Why is there so much backlash about this being downtown?

    Poor atmosphere, poor facilities, away from campus, and ticket prices are just a few.

    Re: Crosstown Shootout Moves Downtown

    Both universities spent millions of dollars on basketball arenas on campus in the last 20 or so years. Why move one of the better games on both teams' schedules to a terrible arena away from those on-campus venues? It makes no sense. The games should be for the students more than anyone, and I'm not sure how convenient the Shoe is for UC students, but for Xavier students the Cintas Center is a 2 minute walk from the dorms. Downtown isn't nearly so easy.

    Because US Bank is a dump and it makes the game an extra purchase on top of everyone's season ticket package, which is annoying as hell.
