What do you guys think of Northwestern's basketball reno? They gutted their old arena completely, apparently, and rebuilt the inside to be pretty different. Clearly much updated which looks p. sexy. Also they kept their old perpendicular alignment of the court to the beams, so this is still very much another arena like Hinkle Fieldhouse/Alabama's Arena/Tulsa's Arena that runs perpendicular to the direction its roof shape would imply.

For reference, here's what it looked like until a few years ago:


Here's what it looks like now.



The seating upgrade is what we need for our FB stadium. It would take care of the seating problem with the new south end zone expansion.
Hot time in Kat town tonight.

I personally love the Welsh-Ryan reno, looks like a neat little 7k stade. Put a rowdy student section and that could be a great college arena environment.

I'd love for K-State to make Bramlage or a new arena a more intimate 9-10k place.

The absolute worst part about Bramlage is that the first row of stands behind the baskets are a mile from the basket. It's almost like they tried to leave a footprint for something that is ALLLLLMOST big enough for a hockey rink but nnnnot quiiiiiiite. So now there's just these weird dead areas/gulfs behind that baskets and bleachers. Ample space for cheer squads to stretch out and whatnot. If we reduced the capacity of Bramlage and redid some seats, I'd want it to start behind both baskets.

Hadn't been aware of the Welsh-Ryan renovation. Looks nice.

I hate NW basketball though.

All-in-all a pretty nice facility for a school that size/conference level.    Upper levels aren't as steep as they look in the pictures, at least I didn't think so.

UAB has a decent team, they blew out UTEP in the 2nd half.

Yes, BHAM has it's own 18,000 seat arena which is going to get a $100 million dollar reno in the next year or so. Next to the new but extremely small timey stadium they're going to build.   Which will be nice for UAB football, but will never get BHAM the SEC Championship game back, or ever get Tide or War Eagle to move a game there, even if they convince some nobody to move their "home" game to BHAM to play AU/UA. Admittedly it'll be a better location for the BHAM bowl than Legion Stadium.   

On the flipside the arena reno may get the SEC B-ball championship back every few years and get BHAM an NCAA regional again. 

Feel badly for any EMAW Elite architects working on that small timey stadium.

Looking at the plans for the new Texas basketball arena and came across their football stade plans. Found them interesting and really wish we had their money. ($175 million for this project)

p.s. the yellow square is on the picture because it's from an article discussing the field suites. The longhorn shape I am referring to is obviously above it, LOLHUR!

I just want to know if they're adding enough seating to make it bigger than Kyle Field.
