We have been Illinois State University men's basketball season ticket holders for over 30 years. Something happened during the recent ISU/Valparaiso game that we have never experienced before. Home fans booing the Redbirds.
The Redbirds certainly weren't having their best game and were having a lackluster night both on offense and defense. However, these are young men who give their heart, soul and hours upon hours to the basketball team.
Booing them is not only unacceptable but is not something the ISU community should tolerate. Cheer, moan, groan and sigh. But booing is not what a Redbird fan does.
