I know. I know. But its always easier to spend someone else's money :trollface:

its a pretty cool rendering though.

will be interesting to see what everyone does with their facilities once even MORE SEC money starts rolling in. We're currently in the middle of a few projects (finishing up the football operations center and practice fields and the parking garages under the fields, indoor baseball facility, and the basketball practice facility. After that, expanding the football stadium, upgrading Bud Walton, and expanding Baum again.

UK was going to build an entirely new facility on campus that would have been privately funded but the city counter offered with this type of renovation.  After seeing this plan...I'm all for it.

And it doesn't matter who funds it.  It's bad ass.

What you really have to consider is its going to be mostly taxpayer funded.

Very impressive, but less so when you know that since Rupp isn't owned by the University.
True, but it eases my mind knowing ul fans are paying for it as well. :)

Funding a basketball project isn't exactly a difficult task in these parts.  This is just one aspect of Mayor Gray's downtown revitalization.

Follow that link for a video of a virtual fly through of the new arena.  Badass is an understatement.  Nicer than any NBA arena by far.
