    No, But does this change adding a thread I did not read before? It was informative to me.

    He's here all day every day so he should be a pro at using the site. Baylor is also building a new arena fyi.

    You’ve been on here since the beginning, have a decent post count, and you don’t know who he is?

    $300 mil and it still won't have half the home court advantage that Hilton has.

    So will the "Minister of Culture" have a box somewhere in this arena, or will he continue to just hang out on the bench?

    The money in Austin/Texas is incredible. In JP's tenure at ISU, has he even done $300MM in facility improvements? I don't remember the price tag for all the upgrades at ISU, but I don't even think we have done $175MM in improvements on JT.

    It's the fact he constantly comes to this site like he's the czar of all things Big 12, and never uses the search function to see if a thread already exists. This is a common happening for him. Most people understand that you search for existing threads from articles that were written 2 months ago. But Surly's going to Surly.

    And doesn't even give his reason for posting again (which probably had something to do with K-State losing to Texas last night). I like you calling him out on it, particularly given your explanation above.
