The funny thing is that besides Chicago, St Louis is one of Valpo's strongest alumni bases. Mainly because the Lutheran Church headquarters are in St Louis. Valpo always had the most fans at Horizon League events that were in Chicago. Ask UIC who started to play games with attendance by packing the Pavilion with elementary school kids because the Valpo crowds were so large. When Butler was in the Horizon they had the bigger crowds in Indy at Hinkle Fieldhouse by far but there were always 400-500 Valpo fans there. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by the loyalty and enthusiasm of Valpo fans in St Louis in March.

I'm glad they're staying in St. Louis. Chicago is just too big. You can walk everywhere in downtown St. Louis. One end to the other, no problem. It's convenient. St. Louis is like a big, small city. Everybody is together and not spread all over hell.
