Happy to see us being so original. :roll: Though I won't dare complain given the massive improvement to the facility itself.

Plus I'm also a bad Texan that gets tired of seeing Texas stars, Texas flags and Texas shapes on everything.


Get the F out of my state, you traitorous bastard.

nope. coach chisum was on facebook answering the same question. i assume those are just renderings and they don't show the volleyball lines.


At the least, I do wonder if we may get removable volleyball lines. I feel like I've seen those at a few different places; maybe A&M?

i think you may be correct on that. vball does play in reed, on the basketball court, but w/ lines that are't there during hoops games. can't find anything on the googles about how though...

Almost every other school in the nation has vball lines on the basketball floor. Not really a big deal and we shouldnt make it one.

It's a big deal. Based off google images,we are the ONLY Sun Belt school with freaking vb lines.
Hell...Georgia Southern has raised goals over their court, but somehow they figured out how to not have vb lines.
I doubt it, but maybe those are temporary lines we see in the latest pictures. It's disappointing to go through this expensive remodel and still have permanent vb lines.

Think small be small.

i would have loved to see one of the upstairs gyms be turned into a sweet 1500-2000 seat venue. i know they get used for some gym classes and intramurals (maybe still?), but we've got 4 of them and they are WAY underutilized 99% of the time. a nice, cozy, dedicated, volleyball venue would have been awesome, and a much better home court advantage than strahan.

Based on what I read here, I watch more college basketball than 99% of bobcatfans users.

Volleyball lines on a basketball court has never even occurred to me in my lifetime as something to pay attention to until now. It's never once crossed my mind while watching a game or seeing an arena in TV or in person. I couldn't tell you one D1 program that does or doesn't have VB lines on their court.

To me, it's an eye sore. Basketballs equivalent of having a track go around the football field. When TXST hosted UTA on ESPN 2, my wife who never watches basketball, that was the first thing she said to me...."what are all those busy lines?"

Anyway, nothing was a bigger eye sore than the wall.

First home volleyball game is Thursday vs. UTSA.

Volleyball's gonna have to play the season with construction going on the whole time it looks like. I assume they play to be complete before opening night for basketball.

Honest question: What do folks think of the new court?

Not in comparison to what we used to have, just stand alone.

Personally? I think it is not attractive, but I get my taste in basketball courts is far more plain that what is the trend today, so I'm curious how other, more basketball focused folks view the new court.

The dark stain is a little dark for my taste. I like a little more subtlety in the different shades.
