I'm gonna re-post what I wrote on my twitter (@jrmua84 if anyone wants to follow me):

Amazing considering UA was begging for $$$, while Stony Brook basically got blank checks from certain state reps. If basketball is to have sustained success, SEFCU needs to be upgraded. All the rivals are doing it. UA can’t spend years begging for $, or they will be left behind.

I was driving home from FL the other day and kept seeing the lotto billboards for $127M and day dreamed about the day I win the lotto and give UA a blank check for the baddest most impressive 6-7,000 fan arena on the country lol.

I believe a SEFCU renovation is in the cards.  My belief is strengthened by the PE building renovation which includes the PE gym which is where the teams will need to play for a season or two.

Like you, I believe the same but realistically we are probably another 3-5 years out which is sad.

Based on the size of the PE building reno I would say 3 to 5 years is about right.  We will get there.

 

Did I read correctly that they are getting rid of the pool? Or are renovations in the works for it too?

I mean I remember when I worked for the AD for a year as a student facilities person, I remember that thing was seldom used. I knew they had some kid classes there, but most of the time I never saw it being used to a high level.

I'm definitely older than you!  Probably dating myself to some degree but there used to be a ton of PE classes including swimming classes (I took one. Great 1 credit class.)  There was a swimming (and diving?) team too.  I don't know if there is a local market for pool rentals though.

In 1979, I used it a few times during open swim.  There were school records in different disiplines on the far wall I assume when we had a D3 swim team which may have been dropped before I started there.  The individual seats around the perimeter above the pool may have been nice during swim meets to catch the action.

It was dropped around that time.  I met the coach when i was working, forgot the gentleman name.  Those records still stood on the wall during my time.  Yes to D1 standards needed to be 8 lanes but when they redid it they made it 6 lanes and no diving area.  Currently there is a swim club.  

As for local demand there are plenty of indoor pools.  Only time I remember getting a large crowed was Friday night's between 7-9, during the day times it was mostly quiet.  Great part time on campus job, decent pay think 9 an hour in 2004, 12.24 in today's money, great boss.
