To Storm or Not to Storm, That is the Question

Was listening to University of Miami basketball coach Jim Larranaga on the local South Florida sports talk radio and the discussion of storming the court after a big win was brought up. Larranaga was all into the idea of fans storming the court as a distinct expression of enthusiasm and wished Miami fans would storm the court after every win, especially tonight as they take on top ranked Duke at home. I get the sense that as Purdue fans we eschew the idea of storming the court after a big win and in my memory I cannot seem to recall a moment when fans stormed the court at Mackey. I also remember that some of us gave IU fans some shit for storming the court at Assembly Hall after the Kentucky win. I can understand the cathartic nature of that win for the IU program and the last second drama that would make storming the floor perfectly understandable and spontaneous.
