It doesn't appear we are part of this group, but, if this goes through, how will this affect our own arena plans?

It looks like they are going for something bigger than we are.

Not sure but can't help but think it hurts our plans.

As a program that has experience sharing a venue with another entity, I would hope we stay as far away from this as possible. Wofford struggles with basketball attendance as it is, but forcing students to leave campus to go to games will hurt, not help. Wofford doesn't need anything much bigger than what it has, it just needs something more modern in design.

Cameron Arena has proved that it's not about the place, it's about the team and coaches.
