This course investigates the dynamic influence that students can have on the outcome of a basketball game. The goal for students is to understand how they can make an impact, have fun, and get rowdy. We will critically analyze the latest developments in home court advantage from the standpoint of the best student section in the country.


Students will gain knowledge of why the Rowdy Reptiles are the best student section and how they make The O’Dome the toughest place to play in all of college basketball. We will learn and discuss the following topics taught by our very special guest speakers:

• The philosophy of #YositiveYibesYnly – Kasey Hill

• Attendance is mandatory. It actually is for your own good, we’re not just saying that. Please enter the classroom through Gate 3 of the O'Connell Center. The classroom will open two hours before class begins but it is advised that you come earlier if you want a seat in the front.
