Great looking facility.  Not sure what else they add to the conference, but they do have a pretty good basketball program.

They paid $78M for a 7K seat basketball arena. We paid $78M for a 30K seat football stadium. Guess that's Texas for ya! ;)

That blows the Burrow out of the water!


Then I saw the cost of building it  >:( Why can't we be that dedicated to our athletics.  We're just the fastest program in history to win a bowl game, and then back to back bowl games (suck it USF), no big deal, right?

Umm…we just spent that on a football stadium.  That doesn't show dedication?

And in the middle, of an economic downturn. But the good news is we saved on construction costs and got a good rate on the mortgage!

But if we are to upgrade facilities at any time (baseball AND basketball) NOW is the time to commit for the VERY same reasons we did well on the football stadium! maybe we can inrterest a naming sponsor with a package deal on all three stadiums…something is better than nothing (what we have gotton so far!). An interesting thought to me, say a three for the price of two deal!

You're right, FAU is totally dedicated to our athletics department.  We will totally spend that much cash on a new basketball arena right now!
