Here’s your chance to name the IU student section

  • 11/11/2009 1:05 pm in

J.D. Campbell, Indiana’s Associate Athletic Director for Media Relations, passed along the following release this morning:

The Indiana University Athletics Department is seeking names for the student section in Assembly Hall. The student’s selection will be placed on the front of the Crimson Club Student Basketball Shirt.  These shirts will be handed out to all student basketball season ticket holders.  The student t-shirt is a great way for the students to show their passion and pride for Indiana Basketball at every home game.

The Crimson Club was designed to reward Indiana University students for their support of Hoosier athletic teams and the great game day atmosphere they create. Club members will earn points redeemable for prizes such as retail gift certificates, adidas gift packs, opportunity to be Athletic Director for a day, laptop computers, framed IU athletic jersey’s or 42″ HDTV’s. Students will also receive their official t-shirt when they earn 10 Crimson Club points.

Student section names will be accepted now through November 17th with finalist selections occurring on November 18th. Entries are open to all current Indiana Students. Students will be able to vote for their favorite name from November 18th-November 24th on

Entries must be emailed to [email protected] no later than November 17th , 2009. We will notify you if your selection is chosen as a finalist.

Get to work, boys and girls.

    I'm sorry but this is a no brainer. It should be the CRIMSON GUARD! Any G. I. Joe fans know what I'm talking about!

  • Kelin Blab

    Students are welomce to use this one……
    “The Cream and Crimson Characters” (this would follow the theme of some students dressing up in constumes…….what about an entire student section of characters…….)

  • HoosierSmitty

    So the Creaniacs T-shirt isn't catching on? That seems logical given other teams' decision to name their section after its coaches…like the Izzone, Paint Crew etc.

  • Neb

    How about the Crean Machine?

  • sacajacabuncar

    How about the Big Red Zone?

    How about the “Sounds so loud you forgot your play and missed your free throws….section”

    Little play on Nyquil. haha

  • hoosierodi

    I have heard this one said by someone and thought it was good: Assembly Holics

  • Julian

    I like that Crimson Hall one

    Crimson Guard, my bad

  • IUonetwo

    I think IU actually needs a student section before we can name it…dispersing students in about 5 different locations throughout the stadium doesn't cut it for me. I'm looking through my tickets now and I have seats for some games sections G, HH, EE, & BB. I don't consider any of these seats as part of the student section.

  • ben_M

    i like assembly holics

  • roninjeffersonville

    ok here is one: The Crimson Knights. I for one think the arena should be named after Knight

  • hoosierboy

    Assembly Hollics!!!!!!!! I like the Bannertown and Red Zone! good ideas. student section should definately all be together. not spread out

  • 5redbanners

    How about the “Hoosier Well” or “Crimson Well” (kind of ties in Herman B Wells)? Perhaps “Crimson Critters”? “Hoosier Buddies”?

  • jgongora86

    the ” we are better than you are's” .

  • HoosierSmitty

    I have to say no to Red Zone because it sounds like a copy off of Izzone from Michigan State.

    I am lobbying for Crimson Guard. I think it rocks. So what if it's named after the bad guys?

    Assembly Holics is pretty awesome, though, I must say. I would venture to guess that they'd nix that one however. But I do like it….a lot actually.

  • Thought I would share John M's take over at the Crimson Quarry:

    What student section? We don't even have a real student section. We have random clusters of students. The athletic department needs to prioritize — they should be working on actually making a legitimate student section before jumping to the step of naming it. Before sections get named they all should SITTING TOGETHER.

    I don't find many faults with IU athletics but the lack of a first-come first-serve contiguous student section is a major problem. I don't care whose fault it is, it just needs to get fixed.

  • Hidden_Hoosier

    I put in my entry today. I'm going to send it to the Web Master here on Friday. If they want to post it, they can. I think it's pretty good. It's something I've been thinking about and working on for a while.

    I like Crimson Critters, not bad.

  • Peter

    Red Zone is a football term!

    Big Red Pit

  • Bored_in_the_Offseason

    Since I miss the college cut off by a few years: Crean's Cronies or Crean's Crimson Cronies

  • Bryan

    Is this the point where Dick Vitale will step up and declare that we should name it after the General, Robert Montgomery Knight?

  • Huna

    The Hoosiers are the Cream and Crimson – annoint the fans the Rockin' Hoosiers – cuz They will Rock You!

  • redinthehead

    The Hoosier Daddies, The Crean/Crimson Corral, The Crean/Crimson Confine, Hoosierdom

  • redinthehead

    If Samson were still here “The Crimscum” would have worked. lol

  • Bizzle

    The Assembly Hall Monitors.

  • PB0000

    Crimson Guard is cool

  • IULA

    One that got posted before I could even put this up was “Crean Machine”. That's a good one Neb. How about these other options:
    -Hoosier Hall-ics
    -Crimson Baseline

  • IU school colors varies anyway whats the name of the main liquor store Big RED so school out. Coaches are in and out so adding Crean to the name out… The students never sit down so I'm thinking ” The Standing Hoosiers” and removed the seats and put all benches for extra bodies

  • Just so everyone know “Red Zone” is the name of the University of Southern Indiana's student section so I couldn't think that IU should name there's the same. I know Cameron Crazies is already the name of Dukes but why not……………..the Crimson Crazies or Hankering Hoosiers I dont know just throwing those out there lol………….my favorite of I have heard so far is Bannertown

  • gr8iufan

    How about the “Mop Lady Maniacs”
    Us “older” folks would certainly understand

    My first idea as well, and a subtle reference to “The Longest Yard.” Can't go wrong with Burt Reynolds in his prime.

  • derekphillips

    How about the “Crean Machine”?

  • IUalum05

    As a die hard fan and recent alum. All these names are stupid. Is this some sort of marketing thing? Call it the student section. They should be focusing on seating the students in a relevant fashion instead of randomly in the rafters.
