There were more than a few pissed off Faithful when we heard that Indiana State was being brought in to face the Flyer’s for the grand opening of the remodeled Arena. I mean they only had three years after spending $75 million to find a worthy opponent.

But money well spent ... look at the half time entertainment!

RED PANDA flipped 5 bowls on top of her head while balancing her unicycle! Incredible! Our defense and three point shooting was not incredible, however, in the 86-81 victory over Indiana St. Oh well, we have a week to work on it.

You renovate your whole arena...and rent video intro equipment?
Talk to some of those heavy hitters.
They have their own video equipment.
You want to see a nice arena with good video...visit the Robins Center.
Pretty dumb take here. It was a one time thing using court projection equipment to open the updated arena. It was cool, but it really only looks good from the mid to upper levels and takes away other introduction options. Dayton has 8 video display boards and ribbon boards that they couldn't use during this intro because it would wash out the court projection. Many fans like the video screen intros more and are happy it was a one time thing. With the new LED lighting in place and 8 video displays to use, Dayton will continue to have a great pregame introduction using their permanent video equipment.

Nice ... first post and you’re throwing high heat.

I thought the projection on the court was so much better than what is typically presented on the video boards. The Arena’s video boards are quality equipment but hardly cutting edge.

Most indoor professional team venues use projection mapping technology for a reason. UD may not have the expertise on staff to operate the equipment but I question why it wasn’t included in the renovation.
