Blue victory light

Is it burned out? Haven't seen it the last two home victories.

Even if they turn it on it is hard to see.

It must be burned out or got disconnected during the recent arena lighting upgrade. On my walk back to the sigma lot after games in the past you could easily see it. Not this season. BTW, the lighting upgrade is nice. Much easier on the eyes for fans but the court seems well lit.

You can barely see it when it is on.  They needed to put it on a tower.

Agreed. It always should have been something more like this:

The Billiken blue victory light: a tradition that never really caught on 

And it’s a shame, I thought it was always cool to see.

Or just bathe the building's exterior in blue flood lights when they win.

The stands are noticeably darker this year, very similar to how all pro NBA stadiums are. I like it, especially when there are people disguised as empty seats in these early games.

They need to turn pushing the blue light switch into a event after every win. Put a plunger or a big button at the entrance to the student section. Cover the plunger with a clear box that can only be opened after a win "like Deal or no Deal" - find a sponsor to support it - you can have a player, student, alumni, fan push the button and the light turns on. The blue light was something unique about Chaifetz when it was opened and they need to capitalize on it.

Once Danny Mac pointed that out I started noticing it in other college games this weekend. I like it.

The Blue light: a traditional unlike any other....in that it isn't a tradition.

I also caught some of the Seton Hall game this weekend and noticed they were playing in a grade school gym. Don't they usually play at the Prudential Center? Is that under renovation? Conflict that day with the Devils?

Blue victory light flashing nice and bright after the Belmont win tonight. Could see it easily from the same spot I couldn’t see it after wins earlier in the season.

i had an event last night and had to miss the game... i recorded the game and managed to steer clear of spoilers.... but i knew there was potential for the blue light on my way home.... so i drove 15 minutes out of my way to avoid the sight of Chaifetz.... what an amazing treat waiting for me on my DVR...

I like this idea. How does one run this idea past sports marketing?

Tweeting it to Slumbb, slunatics, Billiken athletics and Travis Ford would likely result in somebody seeing it.  I think they are now very open to ideas that will get more students involved.
