OTOH - I am shocked (or slightly amused) in the era of "big arenas" with "corporate sponsors" & "Luxury Suites" that UK has not succombed to that pressure and build a "new" Rupp Arena that seats about 25,000 and has those amentities put in there....
Yeah, UK probably won't do that, either. Somewhat on topic, I remember hearing Rick Pitino is trying to get UL a new arena, I wonder where that's ging. I know there was a snag in that a few years back when the city of Louisville was a finalist along with Memphis to get the Grizzlies when they were relocating in the NBA from Vancouver. I seem to remember hearing stuff about Pitino "not wanting to share the arena and glory" with the NBA team. Of course, who knows, that could have been conjured by us "crazy" 'Cat fans.
