1 EXB102 LECTURE 12- Tuesday, February 16 th 2010 Reading: Cox. Ch14 Discussion: Olympics, death of young elite luger. Luge (on their back, feet first) and Skelton (direction head first) Why are older people competing in Olympics- we are more knowledgeable to train them: nutrition, medical treatment. Tragedy: 21 year old in elite (ranked 44 th in the world) luge killed, how do you deal with it so it doesn’t affect your performance, his friend couldn’t compete, that’s ok. Luge is one of the oldest winter sports. Pressure from luge community, to build track faster to keep up with x-games. 3pt shot was invented because of television, media really affects. Is there such thing as a host country effect or advantage? AUDIENCE EFFECTS AUDIENCE INFLUENCE- does the audience have an influence? ABSOULETLY!!! There is a lot of anecdotal evidence- people have witnessed this and coaches too. All sport being social, compete against other people? a.) Spectator Influence- aggie pack game does spectator has an influence? Something to be aware of! b.) Home Court Advantage- YES! There is a home court advantage . There is influence on the mere PRESENCE of the audiences- people are just there, around other people- still an influence even if they are not watching. (=other people are watching) i.) social reinforcement- the influence of others can evaluate you (example-told jugglers that world class jugglers are watching them in the back row and it changed how they juggle, their performance DECREASE just by being told there were world class jugglers in there) c.)Basking in Reflected Glory (BIRG)- psych professor Midwestern football school, go into his 600 class psych class after football weekend, count the number of students who were wearing school-related logo gear. * Research found that on the MONDAY after the football win, more undergraduate students were wearing school-related logo gear after a football for a win, more than a loss. (school culture about sport is different in every school) Why call it basking in reflected glory? -the win and losses of team can influence the mood on campus -pronouns people used: “WE beat”….team lose= “They” lost… -we as humans don’t want to associate with losers because we are social beings. -sport allows us to associate ourselves with people who are successful.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
