A spin-off of the SEC Stadiums thread, which SEC basketball arenas have you been to, and how would you rate them, not including your own team's arena.

Beard-Eaves: kinda big, and very loud for a concert I was at. Never been to a game there though.

I've been to State's obviously and I really like it. It's smaller but it's a classic setup, gets very loud, and there isn't a bad seat in the house.

Alabama's stadium is big but I don't like the set up in there at all.

Ole Miss' Tad Pad is probably the worst arena I've been to. It's small dark and cheap looking. I sat near the top and there was duct work hanging from the ceilings and it was pretty quiet in there.

the only basketball away game i've been to was tennessee, and i've done that several times. it's always pissed me off how they basically ripped off rupp with there design... just like unc. i've also have been to the s.e.c. tourney if that counts.

Only away game I've been to is @ Alabama, and the experience was awful. It's broad, flat and open - the fans are quiet if they even show up, and it seems every angle in Coleman is a bad one. Hated it.

It is loud there when they have a good team.

Last time I was in T-Town at a game was before their renovation..it was a dump....I've been there since for my sisters graduation and it is looking alot better. I really do not like their seating arrangement though....you don't even feel like you are in the arena when you are up in the upper section.

There is nothing special about the hump, but it does get loud and it's a good place to see a basketball game....you have a good seat anywhere in the house.

The tad pad is well....I'll be nice and just not comment.

I haven't been to Florida and haven't been to Auburn or SC, but have been to all of the others.

IMO, Arkansas is the best. Just a nice facility and a great atmosphere. The fans are

The others, in no particular order.....

TBA in Knoxville was better my last trip than my first one ten years ago. They really made some good improvements to the inside, though it is nothing to look at outside.

Kentucky was big, but not what I expected. My seats felt like I was on a 60 degree angle getting up the stairs. The folks down low didn't seem to be into the game other than taking the opportunity to yell at the refs.

Humphrey was actually a nice building with a good atmosphere for my visit.

Maravich was a little aged (2004 I believe), and I don't know if they have done much since.

Alabama wasn't good at all.

Ole MS was just bad and about 3,000 for a mid-week game the night Frieje broke Vandy's scoring record.

Georgia had a good team when I was there so I'd be curious to know how they are drawing now. Nothing out of the ordinary, but a comfortable building.

I've had season tickets to Vandy for 22 years (in school for 4 of those), and I appreciate it for what it is. It's much better today than it was before the major overhaul a few years back. While I understand some people don't like it because it's different, those familar with it love it for its uniqueness. I've seen all 4 of the #1 upsets since 87, so I know how that building can rock with a big game comes to town.

TBA - Horrible place to watch a basketball game. Fans were not very into the game. (Vandy won by 30+) The fans had a very low basketball IQ, did not know much about the game and only talked about football, they didn't really pay attention to the game. We stopped into their old basketball arena an took a piss on the way to the car. (pissed on the court)

GEC - SEC Tourney. Good bball arena setup.

I have only been to Bud Walton Arena. My hears were ringing after one game there. It was so loud that it was painful at times.

I have just seen the other arenas on tv and in my opinion they are all really good when the home team is having a lot of success. SEC basketball fans in general are fair weather but they are great when the weather is fair and much better than most outside observers would think regardless. Eight SEC schools were in the top fifty in attendance in 2007 and seven were in the top 35.

I got to go to the Duke-Maryland game in Durham a few weeks ago and sit courtside right in front of the Cameron Crazies -- easily one of the coolest sports experiences I've had. that atmosphere was flat-out unreal.

I haven't called anyone a redneck in a long time. UT is more of a hillbilly crowd anyway, maybe ridgerunner fits better. Sorry after all the crap I have seen UT fans do to Vandy stuff, pissing and puking on it, starting fights with elderly fans and their grand children, puking in the stands, cussing out children, throw full cups of beer on a 12 year old b/c he had vandy colors on, etc. UT deserves whatever they get. This was 5-6 years ago too, I wouldn't do it again, but I would go back an change it either.

I figure your right. The teams are better, the renovations, the entire atmosphere seems better than when i last went. I'm sure it's a good place to watch a game now since it actually gets pretty filled to capacity and there is excitement around the program.

All your venom is nothing but hearsay on your behalf... Funny thing is it's document how Vandy fans threw soda, seat cushions, etc. at UK when they blew a huge lead and lost... somewhere around 96-97.

Rocky@theTop
03-02-2009, 08:30 PM
Anyway, back on topic...

Been to Rupp once... UT won so it was a good experience. The crowd is similiar to UT's football crowd. All blue hairs... no pun intended. The UK tradition is something to be respected... even if they suck. LOL

Memorial Gym- I like to call it the Fire Hazard on West End. It gets very loud in there... The lower level sidelines seem like your usual big donor scene that you get at every school. Plenty of rednecks (yes Vandy has them) in the endzones and upper decks. Terrible sightlines throughout. The idea of the team benches is the most stupid thing in college sports. I'd rather watch a game in Oakland High School.

I'll leave TBA out of the discussion and it is by no means perfect.


The best visiting arena is not even in the SEC... Phog Allen Arena - IMO, no one in the SEC could touch.

I've been to Memorial, Bud Walton, and obviously TBA.

Rocky pretty much hit the nail on the head with Memorial. I can't imagine a worse place to watch a basketball game.

Bud Walton is very nice. Good atmosphere, love the HOF walk through displaying not only the basketball trophies, but the track and field trophies as well. I could do withought larger than life pictures of Corliss Williamson and Scotty Thurman. lol

You do know that the SEC and NCAA made Vandy move the benches behind the goals b/c of a complaint filed by ....wait for it......Adolph Rupp. So if you want to complain blame Rupp for the benches where they are, all b/c his lazy a$$ didn't want to have to walk up 3 steps to get to the court.


And rocky show where it has been "document" of Vandy fans reacting like that. I would love to see it.

You call what I say hearsay, even though I saw it all with my own eyes, but then claim this about vandy and say it has been "document" without providing any proof at all. If you said I was at the UK game in 96-97 and I saw vandy fans throw blah blah blah, then it might hold water. But seems to me your making things up b/c your trash of a fan base was called out on the stuff I have witnessed them do.

I've only been to the Mecca, but I agree with Rocky about the blue hairs. Of course I hope to be one of those guys that can some day afford the good seats, so I hate to say too much about them.

In the next few years, I hope to start using some of those weeks of vacation I have saved up to hit away games. I gotta go to Memorial next year to see us avenge ourselves when Meeks and Patterson come back...yes...you heard it first here....

I'll go out and say that TBA is probably one of the nicest arenas in the league (if not one of the nicest in the country now). It has more of a NBA arena feel to it than college which is kinda my only criticism. Even though those old gyms/arenas are a dying breed it's the sign of the times. Anyways, I would really like to visit Rupp and Bud Walton Arena. I also think it would be cool to visit the Colonial Life Arena and the ODome.

nothing to cheer about in that game.

I can't imagine where you could possibly sit where your view is blocked. Unless it's at the back of the 2nd level, where the 3rd level overhang blocks your view of the jumbotron. I sit in the 3rd level and there's no better seat in the house.

You obviously do not see much of the gameday affairs when you go to a vandy-ut game b/c there is usually plenty of stuff to seeby both fanbases.

I'm not going to waste my time looking it up. It is what it is. No one is denying except YOU. Chuck has had season tickets for many years, I'm sure he can give you the date of Kentucky's comeback & the chaos that followed.

The football stadium is under renovation so although it will still suck, it will be a little less sucky. Hopefully in 5 years when the reno is done it will be better. (CAN WE GET MORE RESTROOMS PLEASE!!)

Memorial is a great place, I just disagree with you. I have never had a bad seat anywhere there. I guess you have to like historical venues to respect it. They have poured lots of money into it recently and it is top notch.

I believe it was the year we lost either 65-0 or 56-0 that I was hit with the full beer (in a cup not a can) Then they all thought it was funny and laughed. THis was adults too not college students. It was thrown from the building attached to that bridge that runs next to the stadium and over where the pre-game show was done. That is where my hatred for all things UT comes from.

And Rocky, like I said once again you FAIL to provide any proof that you claimed to have.

The football stadium is under renovation so although it will still suck, it will be a little less sucky. Hopefully in 5 years when the reno is done it will be better. (CAN WE GET MORE RESTROOMS PLEASE!!)

Memorial is a great place, I just disagree with you. I have never had a bad seat anywhere there. I guess you have to like historical venues to respect it. They have poured lots of money into it recently and it is top notch.

I believe it was the year we lost either 65-0 or 56-0 that I was hit with the full beer (in a cup not a can) Then they all thought it was funny and laughed. THis was adults too not college students. It was thrown from the building attached to that bridge that runs next to the stadium and over where the pre-game show was done. That is where my hatred for all things UT comes from.

And Rocky, like I said once again you FAIL to provide any proof that you claimed to have.


You said earlier in the thread it was at Neyland and it was poured on you.

UT guys must think basketball was invented to be played in an arena...not a gym. These guys had the world's largest curtain in their ARENA up until this year, and THEY'RE talking crap?

Chuck... we know this. We first played in Alumni Hall then Stokley Athletic Center. The difference between UT and VU is that we accepted these venues had turned into a dump and built a new one. Vandy is still holding onto yesteryear trying to pass off Memorial as historic. :raz:

This is post #17 of this thread...


TBA - Horrible place to watch a basketball game. Fans were not very into the game. (Vandy won by 30+) The fans had a very low basketball IQ, did not know much about the game and only talked about football, they didn't really pay attention to the game. We stopped into their old basketball arena an took a piss on the way to the car. (pissed on the court)

Coach Speak
By Jeff Lippman - October 25, 2007


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- The topic that seemed to interest Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings the most at this SEC Media Days was the fact that swearing on the sidelines would no longer be tolerated by SEC officials, according to the statement made by supervisor of officials Boudreaux.

Stallings, apparently one who enjoys a good swear on the sidelines, said he understands the basis behind the new rulings, but says it will be difficult to change his ways, that's just how he talks.

Well, I'll let him tell you, he said it best.


"We're just out there trying to do our job, just like they are just out there trying to do their job," Stallings said of the officials. "As far as the swearing and cursing and things, I'm probably in trouble first of all."

See, I told you he has a penchant for the four-letter word.

"I can see in a situation where an official is running away from me and I say something like, 'Shoot!' Well, is the guy gonna turn around and T me up because he thinks I said something else?" the coach asked. "I truly am all for sportsmanship and I think the official has every right if they want to put a rule in that says if you direct some abusive language towards the official, to bust the guy up. But an official said to me one time, 'Coach, you swore at me.' I said, 'I swore? That's how I talk, it wasn't intended for you'."

So how did coach Stallings learn the art of the cursed word? Anyone who knows how former Purdue coach Gene Keady spoke on a basketball court would understand.

"I worked for Gene Keady, you know, come on," an exasperated Stallings said to laughter abound. "When he and coach [Bobby] Knight were coaching against each other, the officials didn't get all squirrly because they heard one of them drop out something that might have offended the four year old in the fourth row."

Stallings is most concerned with officials misinterpreting his foul language as directed to them, or even more importantly, will they give him a technical foul just for swearing at his own players?

"I'm not for the coaches being able to rant and all that, but as a coach, you learn to speak a language that your team understands and they learn to understand the language that you speak," he said. "If I want to say something to a player, I ought to be able to say something to one of my players. My players don't seem to have a lot of problems with what I say."

Just to be clear he has not been T'd up due to cussing for as long as I can remember. Like I said in an earlier post, and vandychuck 1st mentioned it, no one is claiming he does not cuss. But I have never heard, or seen him T'd up for cussing. This article was from 2 years ago also. You implied he is known for cussing during games, wouldn't he have been t'd up for it since the SEC told the officials to T up a coach if he cusses? But he hasn't, whats the deal?

I have sat in that top tier section at Memorial and (the view) is horrible. You can't see the majority of the facility and the "cinemascope" view that some refer to it is a terrible way to watch a basketball game. If it was so great, why hasn't other schools followed suit and built their gyms/arenas the same way?

P.S. It's also a fire hazard. :raz:

Auburn (home stadium) - It's getting torn down for a reason. The new one will be awesome though.

Alabama - It was a dump inside but they did a very nice renovation job a little while back. If you're in the corners it's a worse seat than in the corners at stadiums with more rounded seating. Kind of far away from the action in all seats. It doesn't look like much from the outside.

UGA - It's not easy to spot if you're not a frequent visitor to Athens and already know where everything is, but it's not that bad looking once you realize that it's the basketball arena you're looking at. Inside is alright. Average in my book.

Georgia Dome - Seating sucks no matter where you are, but they are the most comfortable seats.

BJCC (I've seen SEC teams play in the NCAA tourny here) - First few rows of the upper deck is the place to be. It's a great seat from there.

I know it's women's basketball, but that type of dominance in impressive in any sport.

Haha UT fans bragging about womens championship banners haha funnyThat's an odd comment to make considering what the Vanderbilt women did yesterday. Quite an accomplishment that you seem to completely disrespect your own university doing.

Logic only works with him when it benefits Vandy or discredits Tennessee.

TBA held 25K until the renovations and suites were added. It's now a little over 21K.

Let's be real here, Men's bball >>> Women's bball. Thank god it's just the UT vs. UConn show anymore in women's, though. There's actually real competition nowadays.

So me saying good job to Vandy's womens team for winning a game is the same as UT fans bragging they have more womens championship banners than UK has mens? If I was bragging about Vandy's team then I can understand, but saying good job is a little different than bragging.

And yes it is impressive how dominant they have been, I agree. UT's womens program is 2nd to none.

Pat Head is a great coach. My mother played HS basketball with her. I respect her tremendously as a person, and coach.

I just think it's funny when you brag about Womens sport championships.

I'll admit I wouldn't follow UT's women if they weren't so successful. But regardless, it is something we CAN brag about. Your turn.

Hey I agree they are so successful it would be hard not to brag about it. But it just seems funny you only have womens basketball to brag about. Our girls won the SEC championship 2 of the past 3 seasons, but I didn't brag about winnign or even touch the subject other than maybe saying good job. So trying to act like I posted something I did not won;t get you anywhere. It's pretty funny your arguing with a UK fan about the number of basketball championship banners you have, when yours are only womens.

I'm not dogging you or talking trash about it, I just find it funny.

If we had 9 national titles in womens basketball I would probably be the same way. No hostilities here, just think it's funny.

You have to respect teams like the UT Lady Vols, wining 8 NCAA Championships is excellent under 5 coaches but under 1? Have to respect 'em!
