    Re: college basketball arena rankings

    I'm sad I gave them a page hit. Number 11 is an absolute joke. They average like 6,000 fans a game.


    11. Texas A&M: From the custom Yell Leaders instead of cheerleaders to Aggie fans' passion for the games it is hard to find many schools with more passionate fans.

    All I need to do is look at number 24 to know this list is complete garbage.

    And our campus is sprawling and unfriendly?

    Re: college basketball arena rankings

    One look and you know they are measuring bizarre things that don't make a basketball experience great to most of us.

    For example, the "food quality" is taken into account. The neighborhood of the arena, ease of access (parking, etc.), all these things are taken into account. Thus, you get a bizarre list where Texas' half empty arena sits at number 10, Baylor's Farrell Center sits at 24, Creighton's quiet and unenthused crowd sits at 4, and Duke's Cameron Indoor sits at 31! Haha. What a ridiculous list.

    Re: college basketball arena rankings

    "one of the best homecourts advantages in the state"...as opposed to UNI or Carver? Wow. The 818 seat arena at 15 is a real streeeetch.

    The rankings alone are pretty worthless without seeing the actual ratings.

    I think they were talking campus when they said sprawling, and Hilton when they said unfriendly.

    At first I was thinking "whatever," but after reading the list I completely agree with your assessment. The jokes of the list of arenas that are ranked ahead of Hilton are:

    2. Carrier Dome - Home of the Syracuse Orange (IT'S A FREAKING FOOTBALL STADIUM!!!)
    4. CenturyLink Center - Home of the Creighton Bluejays
    5. Dee Glen Smith Spectrum - Home of the Utah State Aggies
    10. Frank Erwin Special Events Center - Home of the Texas Longhorns
    11. Reed Arena - Home of the Texas A&M Aggies
    12. Marriott Center - Home of the BYU Cougars
    13. Bud Walton Arena - Home of the Arkansas Razorbacks
    15. G.B. Hodge Center - Home of the USC Upstate Spartans
    16. Williams Arena - Home of the Minnesota Golden Gophers
    17. SIU Arena - Home of the Southern Illinois Salukis
    21. Don Haskins Center - Home of the UTEP Miners (just because Haskins is a legend doesn't mean the arena named after him is legendary)
    22. Dale F. Halton Arena - Home of the Charlotte 49ers
    23. E.A. Diddle Arena - Home of the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers
    24. Ferrell Center - Home of the Baylor Bears

    If I were to rank it, this would be my list:

    1. Rupp Arena - Home of the Kentucky Wildcats
    2. Phog Allen Fieldhouse - Home of the Kansas Jayhawks
    3. Dean E. Smith Center - Home of the North Carolina Tar Heels
    4. Cameron Indoor Stadium - Home of the Duke Blue Devils
    5. Breslin Center - Home of the Michigan State Spartans
    6. Harry A. Gampel Pavilion - Home of the Connecticut Huskies
    7. KFC Yum! Center - Home of the Louisville Cardinals
    8. University Arena (The Pit) - Home of the New Mexico Lobos
    9. James H. Hilton Coliseum - Home of the Iowa State Cyclones
    10. Crisler Center - Home of the Michigan Wolverines
