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)

I must’ve missed that UT is getting a new arena. Going from 16,000 to 10,000 is a serious downsize. Probably smart, though. The Erwin (sp?) Center was always half empty and kinda sad. Thoughts on the new one? Looks weirdly basic to be Texas.

Skin-ben, we've been talking arenas over on the basketball blog! come join.

But also, I think 10k is about right (firm believer around 9-10k is right for KSU Cats U arena too). I doubt UT breaks 5 figures more than a few times a year.

In hopes of providing a more intimate fan experience, the new arena will be designed to seat 10,000 during basketball games and can expand to 15,000 seats for events such as concerts and shows. Students will now have seating around the floor instead of only behind the baskets.

That glass monstrosity is going to ruin the setting for them.

No more downtown skyline views

The Worst College Football Stadiums

20. University of Kansas: David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium


Lawrence, Kansas

Kansas Memorial is one of the oldest stadiums in college football — it was built in 1920 and dedicated to students who were killed in World War I. It has history and gorgeous architecture, but the place needs some attention, fans say.
Writes one, in a Google review: "Very old stadium that badly needs an upgrade. The bathrooms were not even air conditioned. Uncomfortable bench seating."
Others say the game day atmosphere is lacking. It doesn't help that the Jayhawks have gone from a powerful annual bowl team to a powderpuff squad in the tough Big 12.

 :Crybaby: :ROFL:




Hot time in Kat town tonight.

It's not exactly the top 50 in the US, if they only include one from each state.
