Old, unused water fountains that show their age.


State of the art (in 1970) wooden floor seating arrangement


There's even a campus map that's at least 12 years outdated.

The saving grace of this place is the court...



old court:


I say it's unfair because it's a younger university, with less students, smaller endowment, lower division than PVAMU.... and this is what we get stuck with? Seriously, the only recent renovations (and when I say recent, I mean just 1-3 years because that's all anyone has seen) are the few chairbacks, the two randomly placed scoreboards, and the new court, which hasn't really been changed since my MOM whent to this school.

But on the bright side, it's alot less repulsive than our football "stadium".
WT has allot of old money supporters from back when it was a Division 1 school playing alongside Texas Tech and Arizona St. The school is growing at a pretty quick rate and the hopes are to jump up eventually. That arena was built with help from the local community. Canyon Texas is a very stuck up "we think we are rich and our kids never screw up" community and they think they deserved something that nice for their high school to play at for special occasions (never have.) It does get used allot during the Texas UIL High school Basketball playoffs.

Well, I'll admit... those are some things PV's missing.

A site dedicated to Towson University's new 5,200 capacity arena under construction. Yes the same school that just broke the consecutive loss record. Should be a nice small arena, and people are actually really excited about the future with a new arena, and a nice recruiting class and transfers suiting up next year.

March Madness

Does anyone else think that the NCAA goes way overboard on trying to be neutral with every single court during the tournament looking exactly alike? They've done this for several years now and I'm not a fan. There's no individuality. The court looks exactly alike whether it's in Portland or St. Louis, Atlanta or Phoenix. The only court that stood out a little bit was the court at the TD Garden because it was a parquet surface. They even removed all the banners there to make it appear even more sterile.

Sure the exterior is ugly, but it's still a better college arena than MOST of the gyms put on here....

(A paint job would help)

To be honest, I had noticed from watching on TV. If they went so far as to strip banners and such that is getting ridiculous. But they're struggling in attendance overall, it appears, so maybe as they continue to adjust they'll not fuss over such semantics.

Ok, I looked at the DMC again and (mainly because I was bored, but I had this idea in my head for the longest) I decided to throw out what I thought should happen for the renovation, since that's the direction the folks at TCU are going, i.e., begining to raise money for it as we speak:



Red = Ticket booths/Team Store, Green = concourse expansion







Purple = New over head 2nd level seating / Black = space for either more seats in the future or box/press space.



I can't stress enought that I don't know the actual height of this place and since there was no model for it in Google Sketch Up, I just guessed. But I do believe it should be larger and heigher than what it is.

The idea:
- Expand the DMC to fit more people without losing most of its intimacy. Redesign the roof in the process.
- move those front offices to the vacant, former weight room in the corner of The Carter.
- Convert those offices into restrooms so you don't have to walk down stairs to take care of business.
- Make the concourse larger. Use some of it for stairs/elevators for the 2nd level.
- Create a new space for tickets AND a store to allow more room in the general concourses.
- And even though you don't see it, give it a more attractive facade. To match everything else in that area, use the Southwest Art Deco style and yellow brick.

I love the drum! It's very intimidating and has turned into an Austin landmark.

Indiana University have posted this gigapixel panorama of Assembly Hall during the IU vs North Carolina Game. Enjoy.

Edit: For some reason posting the link doesn't work. So just put "panoramas . com" where the asterixes are.

Plan is to eventually replace Assembly Hall with a new arena, isn't it?
