New UT Basketball Arena

Recommended Posts

I find it funny that our 2 head coaches who are the face of breaking ground for the new arena could both be fired this year. 

carry on...

At least they stuck with a original colors Burnt Orange and Black.

The official colors of the Texas Women's Athletic Department and the Texas Poms.

Ahh yes, the lack of a new arena and new practice facility is clearly what is holding this program back.

Shouldn't the basketball practice facility be adjacent to somewhere they actually play basketball?

Yea, because the basketball coach is going to be real distracted designing and building the practice arena. What is cdc thinking!

You’re seeing it backwards.  Maybe cdc is too distracted with fancy buildings?  With all that loot, Shaka should be long gone.

Some more notes that came from the Statesman and Lara Korte .

 

-$30 million will be used for construction costs and the other $30 million will be used to outfit the building with the proper training equipment.

-Construction costs for the facility are higher than normal, Fenves added, because the building is being constructed over a truck access route to the Moody Center. This would put the practice facility on the arena's west side along the new Red River St.

-The school hopes to complete the Moody Center and practice facility as soon as possible to make room for the expansion of the nearby Dell Medical School. As a result, the school is requesting to fund the practice facility by going into debt, with the hope that it will be repaid with future donations. This could make Shaka's buyout worth it if CDC feels that Shaka is the problem. The team needs to win to get donations.

Yeah, best way to get a good loan term sheet is to have service payments overtly dependent on donations on our wildly successful basketball program with inevitable leadership changes.

That's fair but I think the risk is motivated by the desire to expand the medical school and they have to demolish Erwin and Cooley to do that.
