I think if you can make 5 3's on zero attempts then anything can happen.

Re: UVM New Arena Thread

I'd like to add that I too am fine with a 2021 finish date. I want them to do a proper job of it.

Re: UVM New Arena Thread

I'm wondering how the existing season ticket holders will be seated in the new arena. Will we get a seat which corresponds to our current seat relative to the court? If your current seat is near the court will you be re-assigned into the nosebleed seats so that your current seat can be sold for the big bucks? Frankly, I'd rather watch on AETV than sit in row ZZ and watch small dots move around on a tiny rectangle.

The new arena will only hold 3,500. No matter where you are sitting there will be no small dots running around a tiny rectangle. Seating will be 360 degrees around the court so there should be fewer rows than Patrick.

The good news about the nosebleeds in the Tarrant Center is that they shouldn't be quite as nosebleedy. With a similar number of seats as Patrick, but distributed around the entirety of the court, it'll probably be more like 20 rows deep than 30 I would think. I went to a game at Quinnipiac a few years back (looks to be comparable capacity to what Tarrant will be) and sat up toward the back near the concourse. There really wasn't a bad seat.

I know it doesn't answer your question, but just sayin'.

Re: UVM New Arena Thread

I'm all in on good seats, and it sounds like we'll have them. Now how about the offerings at the concession?

I know it is early in the construction process, but is there anyone on this board who is in the Burlington area and could give us the occasional photo update of the constructions site as this thing comes out of the ground? Or does the university have a "construction cam" planned or any other links to follow this? Would be kind of fun to check in on the progress from time to time.

Re: UVM New Arena Thread

I would post photo updates if I could figure out how to upload an image on this forum. It's always telling me that my file size is too large. Maybe I'll upload to imgur or twitter and link it here.

I think that UVM currently does concessions through Sodexo, just like their meal plans. I would hope that given more room, the quality and quantity of food and beverages offered would increase.

Re: UVM New Arena Thread

Who's going to start the thread where we post all the the things that we're going to complain about, now that we seem to finally have a new arena on the horizon?

Here's a start:
season ticket location
concession offerings
ticket prices
not enough seats
parking still sucks
too many seats
traffic is a pain, getting out
bathroom location
not enough bathrooms
we have a new arena - why aren't we Gonzaga?

That ought to get the ball rolling...

Wait a minute! We have an old arena. Why aren't we Saint Mary's?!

Oh nvm we don't partake in recruiting violations.
