The arena it's being played in is actually bigger than the Royal Farms arena in Baltimore, so it won't look better on TV.

It will significantly, as others have indicated, cut down on W&M fan attendance as the Baltimore arena, of course, was easy access for Tribe alums and students in DC, Richmond and Williamsburg areas.

Charleston is a wonderful city to visit...great hotels and inns to go with terrific restaurants and lots of history and shops.

Very good move by the CAA.
I think the arena in NoCha seats 14,000 so it's larger than Baltimore. They're only going to get 4,000 to 5,000 to show up to any games anyway, so no matter where you have it, it's going to look empty.

Sure Charleston is nice. North Charleston is a **** hole. The location isn't really improving.

N. Charleston is essentially like having this at the Hampton Coliseum. Nothing but strip malls and a run-down surrounding area. Historic Charleston is 10 miles away. Much more fun to keep it in a downtown setting thats walkable and allows pre and postgame celebrating.

TD Arena on downtown would be great, but it would be almost impossible to get the other AD's to agree. So north charleston it is

N. Charleston is one of the worst areas in the US. With a crime index of 3, it is safer than 3% of the cities in the country.

I take back everything I said. My props were all based on the game being downtown.

I now have the same reaction. Can't stay near the arena and there isn't much up in North Charleston other than poor people. That's too bad.

Actually the arena is in a very nice area. At least 5 huge motel/hotels immediately around it. All have free shuttle rides to downtown which is a ten minute drive except at rush hour.
