    I am really curious to see these compelted new arena. hopefully it still has the magic for home court advantage and better sight lines for those in the upper sections.
    Make it loud, so we can make some noise.

    I caught an article in The Collegian a week ago. It said construction won't start until after commencement this May. And that it will be a 3 "offseason" project to be all done the fall of 2024. Originally I thought it was supposed to be a 2 year project but a lot of things about this project have changed over the years.

    Passes 56-11 on the house floor. I assume goes to senate now. I have no idea if it has to hit a senate committee first?
    Passed senate appropriations and then passed full senate. I assume all it needs is a signature.

    I’m really curious to see if they bring the floor level seating for students back. I really hope they do and in the current sketches, seating does appear to run down to the floor.
    I think for capacity you would need to lower them again. When the raised the lower sections it really ruined the upper bleacher sightlines. I dont think they took that into consideration when they moved those bleachers up 5 feet off the court level. getting lower and closer to the court should help improve the sightlines.

    After reading that, I miss that experience too, lining up hours before the USD game, rushing to get to the stands to get front and center basically right behind the scorers table or next to the opponent bench. We would just heckle and yell at the coach just to be annoying. I miss those old bleachers that went all the way to the floor. really made if feel like it packed in much closer.

    Neat announcement about a student club section sponsored by Hefty Seed. One of a kind. I think it’s a tremendous idea. Give the students some amenities, a way to build community, and a big draw to come to games. Looks great!

    Has the project been officially signed off on so construction can begin this summer?

    I like he's looking out for the tax payer, I think they all should. But, that might include re-furbishing as opposed to demolishing and building new, as a way to save money in the long run.
