 "They won't move back to St. John as it requires massive repair if they keep it long-term and no suites." 

I heard recently that St. John has been condemned because it is, literally, sinking. 

However, we are talking about TOSU. The athletic department is, I would say, "flush." At least commission a study into the expense/feasibility  of making necessary renovations to St. John.  You have VCA in the meantime.  

VCA will always be there for hockey, Disney on Ice, and concerts. It is just a horrible venue for college basketball, in my humble opinion.

Things I'm looking forward to this year: 

1) Santa

2) Beating the donkey s*it out of Sparty

I have an idea/solution:  If/When they tear down St. John, build something akin to St. John but with an eye toward a combination of Cameron Indoor and Rupp.  Small, but steep seating. Yes... this would be expensive, but we are talking about THE... athletic dept, which basically prints its own money. You can still use the Schott for concerts and Disney on Ice, etc. but how about a basketball only venue... that rocks!?  

This program needs a Schott in the arm (Couldn't help it.  Sorry). I can't imagine recruiting someone here, who is going to be at an MSU game next week. It's night and day. A lot of people are on Thad about the state of the program, but you bring kids in to that mausoleum and get them to commit. 

Just a thought.

This is more along the lines of what I was trying to convey. I was just saying that losing early (though to a dreadful team) last year was all that saved us, in the end.  Had we lost week 10 to Va Tech, no way we get in. 

Sorry... my first post was not clear.
