New Floor Coming to Coleman

The basketball court is currently being removed and will be replaced with a new design.  I have not yet heard what that design will be.  Personally, I think it's time to bring back the parquet.

They need to knock the whole thing down. Its not a terrible place, but when Auburn's arena is nicer than yours its time for a change.

Agreed, Coleman has to go. There are alot of bad seats in the place. When I was a student if you were sitting in the top half of the student section you couldn't even see half the court because the seats were behind the video boards where they display the fouls for each player.
Acoustically its poorly designed. The seats go too far back which makes the ceiling too high and creates way too much air space, and the insulation absorbs the sound. A good arena should have seats right on the court going more steeply up to sort of "wall in" the noise and then an upper level to accommodate larger crowds because when you put your seats on the court and don't take them back 5000 rows like in Coleman you lose alot of capacity but you get a much better atmosphere.
The lighting is also poor, its so dark especially once you go farther back in the rows. The whole place is kind of grimy and its just not at all appealing. If I were a recruit I would be turned off.

Agree with Alex.
If you like Coleman, you've never been around.
There are MUCH better designs, and we're falling behind in facilities every season.
It Does hurt recruiting whether you believe it or not.
