As a reminder, the practice facility will be built between the arena and new red river on the west side.

No. Above ground where the scrubs are in this diagram on the arena's west (left) side.

Also, 20th street may or may not still be publicly accessible. 20th actually going to be the underground freight entrance from San Jacinto for trucks accessing the arena. I don't know if they will be able to do an underground entrance and at grade street.

I came across a rendering of the basketball practice facility I had not seen.

That is exactly the type of ridiculously lavish facility our amateur athletes should have. Hell, I hope they've planned a floor for player apartments. I forgot, that would not be fair to common students...it does look great.

SMU - Moody Coliseum: Dallas, TX 75275: Visit Dallas

Pony Up?


I've been to a couple of SMU game in this arena and watched the game from the corner hospitality suite. 

When in the arena, it feels like money. It's a great atmosphere for the fans and I would guess for the players as well. Especially compared to the old Moody Coliseum or the morgue that is The Drum in Austin.

Too soon man, too soon.

Sometimes work has me look at dozens of renderings in a given week.  I don't think I've ever noticed a car pulling a David Blaine before, but I can tell now...that that's all I be focusing on whenever I look at another one for the rest of my life.

I guess that they didn't want to go full BURDINE and build something blindingly ugly, but they also didn't want a nice looking building, so this eyesore is a compromise.
