    I've been to the following venues for P5 basketball:

    Kansas
    Kansas State
    Mizzou
    Wisconsin
    Oklahoma
    Oklahoma State
    TCU
    Texas

    All of those venues are better than Carver

    Which ones? Of the Big 12 ones I've been to (7 of them including Hilton) the worst was Oklahoma and I still think it's better than Carver. WVU is obviously better too even though I haven't been there. Never been to Tech or Baylor so can't comment on those but they don't look good on TV

    Can't disagree with all but Okie-State are better than Carver. Worst D-1 arenas I seen are Penn State's, the odd Vanderbilt Memorial, Texas A&M's are the ones I can recall. They are old, strange, clunky or have an off atmosphere and not better than CHA.

    So what are we talking about...venue or atmosphere?

    If it's atmosphere half the B12 sux in that regard....half empty venues for league games. Iowa would rank 4th....by a wide margin...in attendance. Baylor, OSU, TCU all averaged less than 7,000.....hard to imagine the atmosphere being all that great.

    If you're talking just venue you probably have a point because I'm not a big Carver fan....

    Carver is not a bad place for a bowl arena but there are many better. It is fairly new but new does not always translate to better. PSU's Bryce-Jordan is new and it just blah for a bb game-good convention center though.

    Is anyone going to start a game thread for this tonight? I’m not a fan of that usually but the meltdowns are going to be glorious either way.

    Scenario 1: the team comes out and wins and Fran and the team talk crap and all the Dolph fluffers have to backpedal and be like “**** maybe Dolph should go”

    Scenario 2: the team loses and it’s ON. McCaffrey gets roasted and the team probably begins their slide.

    It's only on BTN so kind of limited to noting post-game reactions, if anything.
