Thread: News About Hanner???

  1. #1

    Default News About Hanner???

    Is there something major in the works for Hanner?
    This is from the latest "From the Desk of TK":

    New video boards will be installed into Hanner to replace the old scoreboards. We also will now have video displays on both sides of the court during basketball games. This video enhancement will create a new level of game day atmosphere for volleyball and men's and women's basketball that I know fans will enjoy.

    Along with the video enhancements, work has already started on the rear auxiliary gym of Hanner Fieldhouse. This work is the beginning process of transforming that gym from an auxiliary gym which is currently shared by academics, both basketballs, and volleyball into a practice facility dedicated to men's and women's basketball. This new practice area will allow our players to have a dedicated practice space all year long that can be utilized around their academic schedules. These projects are part of a bigger plan for Hanner that we will be announcing very soon.


    Hmmm....

    We had plain white pants, we had plain navy-blue shirts, a number on the front and a number on the back. We couldn't even put a stripe down the middle of our helmets. We used a strip of tape. ... Those kind of things screamed, 'TEAM!' - Erk Russell

    Happy to finally see this change, but is it smart to have large video displays at court level, like 10 feet behind the baseline? Wouldn't that be a huge distraction for players? Idk, just asking.

    New scoreboards would make more sense IMO. Maybe that's why they meant?

    Hopefully dynamite is in the plans for Hanner. lol Is it me or does it sound like they're going to make old Hanner the practice gym and dedicate it to both teams.
    No longer eating crow for saying "The TO is gone get over it!!"

    TK said in an interview during Sun Belt media days that a major renovation was in the works for hanner instead of a new arena all together. To me, this means gutting the inside and maybe even the roof and getting creative with the seating arrangement.

    Since they are video boards, they can look like scoreboards during game play and play video/ads/etc during breaks. They will be more versatile, easier to read, and allow for marketing opportunities.

    Seems pointless to me to keep dumping this much money into Hanner. The roads are in place on the campus expansion, ready for us to break ground on an arena. With GAST building a new one, we are going to get smoked in recruiting. We can't repurpose Hanner for other stuff (or even tear it down) and go in on a new facility? Would gladly donate.

    Very pointless. This money should be going into Paulson.
    Too many Urkels on your team that's why your wins low

    Building a new arena is a terrible waste of money.

    No, what's a waste a money is dumbing money into a facility that hasn't meet our demand in years.

    When you guys come up with tens of millions of dollars, instead of just "zomg we need a new arena", let me know.
