Interesting that they are scaling down to a 10K seat basketball arena that will be more accessible to campus. Makes total sense. I think that they took some cues from us in this respect. As typical, it appears that they are overspending.

Yeah, and "the" Moody was an UT alum.

There's a few other Moody Arenas/Coliseums around the state, too.

Well they have already tried to rip of the "BLVD" - so I guess they are going further and trying to steal Moody Coliseum.

They clearly just want to be SMU.

That AD loved SMU even though he was at TCU. Everything was being modelled after us. Bevo Blvd though is a half *** version of ours.

One has to admit that the launch of the new Moody was a good model to emulate.
