I recall once having a conversation with a former football coach about what fans really want to see at college sporting events these days.

As a defensive coach, his position was that fans ultimately want to watch wins – no matter what the score ends up being. It can be a 7-6 football game, a 50-49 basketball game, a 1-0 baseball game or a soccer match that is decided by penalty kicks; people will always come out to support a winner.

The same goes for basketball.
