    Then how can you call losing to ND bad? ND is a better team at this point IMO.
    Because Notre Dame had just lost, at home, to North Dakota State, and had never even threatened to win that game.

    So what IU got thoroughly out played by LIU and should have lost. NDST is a much better team than LIU. Teams have off nights it happens. I don't know what the odds were for the ND vs IU game, but I would of had ND as favorites to me the have played better all year.

    Not that anyone is ever going to call it Simon Skoldt Assembly Hall.....

    Hell, people still use the Hoosier Dome name and its been 20 years since the name change (and 6 since demolition)!

    They should just demolish the dump and build a brand new arena.

    This actually looks like it's going to be a pretty sick blend of old and new based on the renderings.

    LOL really?

    Could you guys be a little more dramatic about this? It's not like we're naming it the KFC Yum Center or the State Farm Center.

    No, it will never be right the old guy has been an absolute dick to us since he left. I can understand his beef with Brand, but Brand hasn't been at the school in years and is dead now for crying out loud.

    My one wish is that I.U. never again tries to extend the olive branch to that bitter old egomaniac. Even though he always rejects us, there's no doubt that his ego is stroked when we routinely reach out to him like a rejected puppy. He enjoys our desperate offers and he especially gets a kick out of rejecting them. I hope that we never again give him that satisfaction.

    Denny Crum was was basically shoved out the door for Rick Pitino, but he never held a grudge. He has since been a classy ambassador for Louisville.

    Basically. There's been a complete regime change. The time right during the Crean hiring would have been the perfect time. He blew it.

    You should have seen IU boards last year when it was announced every team was getting the Big Ten logo on their courts. There were actually people saying IU should boycott the move because it would "ruin the purity of our sacred court." It was barely noticeable and blended in right away, but they kept on whining about it.

    Everyone here (well, almost everyone) is level-headed, but IU basketball fans in general are just batshit crazy.

    I guess that at some point the Kelley School of Business was called IU Business School until some rich dude or dude-ette named Kelley gave up a wad of cash.

    I don't really see a problem with it.

    Though I wonder if renovation is as wise as just rebuilding an arena with better sight lines, similar to BLF.

    They should've renamed it Embly Hall.... after Knight left.

    I'm afraid they will stick a ton of money into the building and it will not get where it needs to be... but they'll have all those sunk costs in it and then be trying to figure out a way to actually get the building they need just a few years later.

    40 mil seems light, State Farm gave Illinois 60 mil, obviously IU's a much bigger brand. IU's no corporate sponsor policy doesn't make it possible to make the name just open to the highest bidder I suppose though.

    It's going to take a lot more than $40 million to fix that place. But it'll be fun to hear commentators butcher the pronunciation of Skjodt.

    I honestly don't care what they call it. I'm still going to call it Assembly Hall. I am, however, interested to see how they plan to polish that turd of an arena into something worthwhile for just $40 million.

    I agree, they should build a new arena and just demolish the dump. They have gotten over 40 years out of it, but it's time to move on. A program like IU should have a world class facility.

    I'm not the nostalgic type. I like seeing my favorite teams get new arenas/stadiums.

    I am the nostalgic type, and I still think the smarter move would have been to demolish the Hall and build a new arena. If we went that route, I wouldn't want it in that cookie cutter mold that you so often see out of these new arenas. That's part of what makes Bankers Life such a great arena--it has some character, as well as being modern.

    I will say the renderings look very cool. They are still very much early stages but I am liking them so far. It will be interesting to see what happens.
