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 grant that BILF is nice, but putting up a pro-type arena on a college campus can backfire. OSU's arena is horrible for example. Assembly Hall is fine as it is--they still sell every game out, right? With the statewide budget cuts, is this what the University needs to spend $ on/fundraise for? Is the atmosphere in new Mackey any better?
