    I am not that worried about seating, I want a winning ball team! What kind of seats will guarantee that?

    The seats can always be changed. My biggest concern is the facade and long term structural design and aesthetics. They missed the boat. They missed the pond. They missed the lake. They missed the ocean. Talking Titanic level of failure. Imagine waking up in 2040 and heading out to Hulman Center and looking at that render. You proud of that place? Now picture doing the same in 2060. You proud of that place? If the answer is yes, you're too easily impressed

    Furthermore, the several of you that say "all I care about winning" are missing a vital point. Facilities matter. Let me say it again. FACILITIES MATTER. If they didn't, you wouldn't see schools building these bigger and better arenas, practice facilities, locker rooms, etc. The whole package attracts talent. Talent wins ball games. So next time you talk about a winning team, start looking at the bigger picture.

    Everyone with their hands in this project has failed the basketball program, the students, the alumni and the fans that pay their disposable income to go out to the Hulman Center to see a basketball game, attend a concert or other event.

    Cushy blue ones that are comfortable where the school can charge a couple bucks more per seat. That money can be diverted back into the program where the team could then buy home games instead of having to be bought out. Lansing has an 80-35 home record -- a 70% winning percentage. Work for you?

    Totally agree. I would say that if they would have showed this one first, we would have been disappointed. But, not nearly as much we are now after seeing all the other cool ones. I can’t believe they couldn’t at least put it in color. I just hope the inside is done right and the outside finished product better than expected.
