OT: What a waste of $85 Million dollars at UMBC


Recommended Posts

Well, yes...it's a new arena...but my god is this thing ugly. If our athletic department had even HALF this money...we'd have a much better looking pad. It has zero sky boxes...and a terribly open end. Seats less than 6000 for hoops...i've heard just around 5,000.

 

Congrats are in order for new digs...but this is a supreme case of bad design for the dollars.

The write ups on the arena specify that its a multi purpose facility. I dont think a 5,000 seat arena is at all undersized for the AE. Granted, the Wall is ugly, but perhaps that gives them the most flexibility.

Flexibility for their dodgeball team to use the facility perhaps ... . Three-fourths of the arena is gorgeous.

Looks like it might have a portable floor system, which would seem appropriate if you're trying to make it a multi-purpose facility and not a true basketball arena.

If it doesn't have those high-speed Dyson AB14-G Airblade PolycarbonateHand Dryers in the restrooms then they way overpaid.

 

At least it has chairbacks.

And probably better bathroom lighting. I havent been since Hooleys shot - do we still have the darkest mens room in the America East?
