"Nicer" doesn't pay the rent.

Besides, the group renovating the arena and bringing in the NHL are concert-centric. I question whether SU gets quality dates in this arrangement.

Still, if you're a college paying rent to play in someone else's arena, it's a magnitude of degrees more costly than having your own place.

OVG has said they would allow them to come back and keep them at their before reno rent rate... Dates can be worked around. If MSG can handle everything they have in their building OVG can do the same...

Good stuff lopes. I'm glad they are keeping costs down for SeattleU. IIRC, there is some curtain system being installed to make the arena more intimate for less populous events. Essentially closing off the upper bowl.

The MWC caved and it appears Boise will remain in the MWC for the foreseeable future.

Eh, more like both parties agreed to uphold the contractual terms of BSU joining the conference to being with, which is a $1.8M dollar bonus and the right to maintain some of their own home FB games. My understanding is BSU was asking for a proportional increase to their bonus relative to the new TV deal, which it sounds like the MW didn't give to BSU.

This issue probably comes up again when the new TV deal expires, at which time BSU will probably be looking to move to a "better" conference, if one exists.
