    The crowd at The Barn never ceases to amaze me.

    My wife and I write down some of the most baffling lines, or funny ones, or whatever because we like to be entertained. We even reuse the funny ones because its even funnier the 30th time. Note: We don't yell any of this stuff outside, we are purely positive yellers (I mutter negatives to myself quietly)

    "I bet he loves Coffey"-cute 6 year old kid
    "Murphy Murphy Murphy, catch the ball"-same cute 6 year old
    "This is the ghetto, pass the ball"-old white man in front of us, referring to IW
    "These guys need haircuts, I hope they have money for them"-Old woman behind us referring to (I assume) Murphy, Oturu, Curry and Omersa. She is always concerned about haircuts
    "You don't see many blacks who can shoot"-Old guy next to us
    And finally, and certainly the hardest I've laughed all season, was the Rutgers game. Group of 4 guys behind us, row 24.

    Yeah, and then there's the person who after the idiot comment is made about Harlem, yells at Stockman, "Hey Matz - you're not in Oslo anymore."

    savage.

    needless to say he didnt make the free throws.
    That was mean. Colt got enough business from the refs who called a foul on him every time he looked at a guy. They didn't need to pile on.

    MSU fans also chanted "Get some muscle tone, get some muscle tone" at Jeff Hagen on the line.

    in the 90's Bobby Knight was working the official during a stoppage. During a perfect lull in crowd noise, somebody belts out (loud enough for everyone to clearly hear) "SIT DOWN YOU WHALE".

    Favorite chant: "six more years, six more years", as Sr. Jess Settles is shooting FT's.

    Favorite nicknames: Elliot Eliason, aka moose on ice. Joel "ten thumbs" Pryzbilla.

    Not exactly creative or subtle but I will forever remember a pretty epic F@ck Bo Ryan chant when I was in the student section. It was loud and clear. Watched the recording of the game and could hear it clear as day. Loved it

I sit in section 217 and off to my right someone shouted to the refs that they need to call the offensive 3 seconds as this poor kid is on the ground. I tried to not to laugh but couldn't help it...it was dark humor and I found it funny.

    It got me thinking about some of the funny/obscene things we have heard or maybe yelled ourselves during a game. I have only had season tickets for two seasons and would love to hear some memorable things overheard at the barn. So go ahead, this is a forum to share your stories that made you laugh or things that made you shake your head.
    Hey, man I sit in 217 and I called for three seconds because it was three seconds. It would have been really cold to mock the guy who took the hit to the family jewels and didn’t return. I restrained myself. Someone has to hold the refs accountable. 😛

    "Hide your laptop!" The whole student section got into it. Alright, alright it was at Drake. But I certainly remember Royce and his buddies didn't think it was too funny.

    Someone I sat by once called (the pre weight loss) Mo Walker 'the human iceberg'.

    During the 1993 blowout against Indiana the student section started chanting to Bob Knight "kick your son! Kick your son!"

    Probably the best one I can ever recall....’Anal Train’ referring to Ron Dayne. I was a Freshman...student section in the dome ...my buddy grabbed a Dayne Train sign, tossed it over his head and it hit a cop....

    I almost got kicked out of a game against Michigan because I was close enough to the court that the ref heard me say “I thought the state of Michigan was broke how could they afford to pay you off.” He cale over during a timeout and told me he’d have me thrown out if I said one more word. My dad asked him if he’d heard of the first amendment. I didn’t want to cause any more trouble so I left it at thay.

    this is not a "heard something" story - but it's true. back in the 70's, Gophers were playing Indiana. was at game with some guys from St. Cloud (one was a HS buddy). One of the Cloud students was from Indiana. he brought a banner to the game, and wanted to run around the court with it, but nobody would help him. I may or may not have been under chemical influence, so I said "sure."

    we ran down to the court, got up on the court somehow, and ran around with this banner. It was something related to John Lazkowski, who was the 6th man for Indiana. this guy knew him - same home town. Gophers fans were booing us and giving us the finger. we stopped in front of the Indiana bench and the other guy shook hands with Knight. then we were escorted off the court.

    at the time, I was a student manager and stat guy for the Augsburg men's team. The Auggie coach was Erv Inniger, who played for Indiana before he went into the ABA. He loved it.
