    Is this in the Don or is it in the Foster Stevens Center?

    DHC.

    Very nice. Right on par with the big boys and UTEP needs every bit of help.

    However, nothing beats coaching.

    True that. But I'm sure The Don is in need of serious upgrades.

    The new arena could be the answer.

    Why would UTEP move their basketball games to the downtown arena, when they already have a venue they already own?

    Once the city gets its arena up, it’d be awesome if The Don was replaced with a more intimate arena — maybe 8k.

    The Don is fine. When the team is winning, the crowds fill it up and it's a great environment.

    No way, man. Fill it up at 12k. I've been to a few games at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kansas, and that place *feels* small and intimate yet seats over 16k. That place is magic for KU. Find a way to capture that for UTEP at 12k.

    Just need a younger crowd in the Don. When I was young it rocked! But damn we all got old and a whole lot calmer.

    I agree. It doesn’t make sense for UTEP to share revenue with the city.

    Right, but the city is about to steal revenue from UTEP.

    I would get rid of 3 student sections and make them GA. Students dont go, so they don't need 5 sections. The most electrifying atmospheres I've ever been to at the Don were when seating was open.it creates a sense of urgency of getting to the game and puts young butts in the seats.

    I agree. But at the same time that arena should bring in events that UTEP can not. Don’t forget their roof/rigging can not accommodate modern stage shows.

    Yuup, you can renovate it and bring in premium seating and experiences. When the team is good, it would be a hot ticket. You could eliminate a lot of student seating so only the real student fans are attending the games.

    Wait...did you attend a game there or did you go to school at CSU? I went to school for a year...'95-'96. Well, more accurately, I lived on campus for a year...most of my time was spent in the dorms playing video games.

    I agree with you but isn’t the student section already the unofficial GA section? For many years my ex and I would buy the cheapest tickets and then go sit front row in the student section. I never had a problem or was asked to move.

    Beer, flame throwers, and video boards. Everyone is buying the Jerry world of sports entertainment. Great for the kids but kids don't buy season tickets.

    I like what CRT is selling: Bring in a Big XII quality type of team to the DHC.
