Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

Kemper has outlived it's usefullness in most people's opinion. I'm not sure if Kemper has cost us concerts or not, I don't set them up.

Re: OFFICIAL - Arena construction

A downtown sports arena at 14th and Grand would be a loser. Sorry, you do not build an arena to have the Big 12 once every three to five years if you are lucky.
