    Watching the IU/Northwestern game on BTN. Northwestern's arena looks like a high school gymnasium!:biglaugh:

    Honestly unbelievable that a Big 10 team plays in such a shabby looking arena.

    in addition, it sounds like around 50% of the crowd are IU fans.

    We are lucky to have one of the best college basketball stadiums in the nation in Ames, Iowa. I mean just think: we could have that place, ugly.

    Given the fact that NU has never been to the NCAA Tournament, I'm not surprised.

    Instead of talking smack about there facilities, because it is northwestern. Pay attention to the scoreboard.
