    It’s actually 6,500 fewer seats for basketball.

    Yep, that kind of surprised me. I have never been a big fan of the Erwin Center, but spending $300 million on an on-campus arena with no practice facilities and only holds 10,000 does not strike me as being a brilliant move.

    The university is spending $0 on the building.

    True, but it is still a lot of money to spend on an undersized arena. If and when Texas has a good basketball team again, there will be a lot of unhappy fans who won't be able to get tickets.

    "Actor Matthew McConaughey has been dubbed the arena's "Minister of Culture" to enhance the fan experience."

    The first 100 fans to the game get a special invitation to bongo naked after the game?
