Boyd’s study on crowd noise at hockey games

Brenna Boyd’s study on “Measurements and player surveys of crowd noise levels during college hockey games”, presented at the Acoustical Society of America meeting in Jacksonville, Florida (November 2015), generated a lot of buzz.  A press release prepared by the AIP was picked up by a number of online science and sports news channels, including Sport Daily Times.  Even Hoda and Kathie Lee Gifford discussed it on Tuesday’s NBC Today show (11/3/15) – they disagreed with the study’s results that higher crowd noise levels do not correlate with more goals or higher scores … but we are sticking by our findings!
