I think I am one of the offenders to which you are referring. To me, it is the Drum. I am old. I get to call it want I want! Now, if we have anymore kerfuffle about this, I am gonna have to get Kelso over here to tell you to, "Get off of my lawn!". Kelso!!!!!!!!!!

So now the arena is the problem? No, the f'n coach and his inability to get the caliber player he once did is the problem.
Also, UT will not build a basketball only arena. The area doesn't have anywhere else to house major events and concerts that's worth a damn, so the new arena would also be a special events center.
UT could put the students right behind the benches and baselines and make it a more intimidating place right now, but they don't want to. Remember, this AD is all about money first so getting a great student crowd hasn't been a priority.
Even if the drum is replaced, it won't be for 10 years at least and the new place won't be any better atmosphere unless Texas basketball is top 5 talent playing for titles just about every year. Texas fans on whole just won't show up for subpar basketball the way they have for the terrible product Mack has put on the football field for 3 seasons now.
Nooooo, we can't do that ... empty seats behind the benches and baselines are not very intimidating ... Noooooo ... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FshkO8HqQ10
