    Thats... pretty incredible. The placement of that massive video board is kind of odd, but that venue would be one of the top few venues in the country, and undoubtedly would draw some big events.

    That actually seems pretty neat. Although I always hate seeing these renderings:

    The Final Four needs to go back to arenas, that's where basketball should be played. I mean I know this is exaggerated this picture, but other then the fact you would be at the final four, this seat does not look appealing at all for basketball.

    But if youre in that seat, chances are you wouldnt even be in the building for a smaller arena. If ISU was in the final 4 would you want to be in the building even if it was a view like that? Plus leaving all that demand on the table is a money-loser for the NCAA.

    Also, it looks a bit worse because of how small that image is. In the regular version on their site, its not quite as bad:

    If ISU was there I would be there no doubt. I suppose this place looks much better than some of the stadiums they've been playing them at, its just some of the set ups look horrible

    I mean in Jerryworld?

    Seems like the quality of shots is way down too because of sight lines I think I remember seeing an article about how shooting percentage is way down in final four and title games compared to the earlier games in the tournament by the same teams
