When it's over said and done, if the new coach wants a basketball only facility, I say build it. I wonder how hard it would be to make Barnhill into a basketball only practice facility and then use Bud Walton for gymnastics and vollebyall? Barnhill would make a hellacious basketball practice only facility. It beats that Hyper building looking Kansas facility in this thread.
This gets said over and over, but we have no problem building multiple practice facilities and lounges and locker rooms for the football team. It's not like the BAC and DWR are holding tractor pulls every night... they're sharing their current facilities with no one.Its the new thing, and instead of bitching and moaning about it like an old man on a porch, we just need to let our new coach to build the Damn thing to his liking before we get completely passed by. As much as we always brag on our facilities, I have no clue why everyone wants to be stagnant with BWA and basketball.
Since we are so far behind in the basketball recruiting race, lets just figure out what the next "great thing" is that all the recruits want and be the first to have it. frick a practice facility, we are already to late.
Tubby says he hasn't been talking to Arkansas, but he knows that we have a completion date for a facility in 16 months? I wonder who he didn't talk to that didn't tell him that?
ANyone hear Jimmy Dykes today mention that one reason we may not get a big time coach was because of the lack of a practice facility and that it hinders recruiting?Jesus imagine the incoming class if we had one? I imagine Rivers and Beal would be begging to come. Jimmy Dykes is a clown. /felt it was okay to revive this thread due to subject BEING IN ALL CAPS!
Pelphrey signed a top 10 class with no practice facility and a shitty record. Not needed.
It's still a matter of gym availability. First of all, the players are students taking classes (most of them, anyway). The boys and girls have the same general type of schedules. That's going to eat up a lot of their day. So at the end, you have to divide up time to practice between the two programs. Furthermore, what about the gym rats that want to work on their own, or the group wanting to play pickup games...but the girls have the gym. Or vice versa. I see it as a need if we want our kids to have gym availability anytime they want it.
I am not claiming I am right, I am saying I don't get it.
Still turns into a Title IX issue. When Bud Walton was built, Barnhill was going to be the Women's only gym. That lasted about 18 hours.Realistically, we have a basketball only facility, but building a separate basketball only facility like lots of folks are doing is the new hotness. If they are bragging that theirs is for the Men's team only, they are only speaking temporarily. It will change.
You wanna know where Kentucky's women play their home games at?
If it's not in Rupp Arena then Kentucky is open to litigation. The Women's Razorbacks or whatever they call themselves, shouldn't be playing in Bud Walton with crowds of 800-2000 in a 19,600 seat arena, but they do. Has nothing to do with gender, but they do not draw a big enough crowd. If KY's girls are playing in a smaller gym, that is the right thing to do, but I have seen many Title IX cases filed, and won in high schools and colleges everywhere when there was absolutely no gender being mistreated, but ever since 911 everybody's so sensitive. Thanks a lot bin Laden.
So now we have to build a fucking men's practice facility, AND a women's arena...we better get that bag of chcickentysonmoney ready..
there will be lesbians all over the goddamm place if that comes to pass. EVERYWHERE.
the good kind, the Jennifer Aniston/Halle Berry/Jaimie Pressley kind?or the wallet on a chain, Treesah Proot type?
Resonance...metal folding chairs or hard tile floors cannot be beaten when it comes to firing off a loud fart.
