UM Reps Fly To Auburn To Tour AU’s New Arena

Just one week after a women’s basketball game was rained out — yes, rained out — at the 45-year-old Tad Smith Coliseum, several Ole Miss officials flew to Auburn yesterday to tour the Tigers’ brand new Auburn Arena.

You don’t think the rain out helped Pete Boone kickstart talk of a new roundball arena in Oxford do you?

The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports that Boone told the paper that conversations regarding a new arena are “positive.” 

“Right now, we’ve got a pretty strong vision as to what we need to do,” UM’s AD said.  “There’s no question we need a new arena.  No question.  By the time you build one, it could be three to five years from now, if you start and go through the process.”

The paper also asked Boone about plans to create “new dining and student recreation facilities” as part of a new arena complex.  He said a consultant would like be brought onboard to coordinate those ideas, “But it’s on, as far as those things are concerned,” he said.  “It’s on full speed.”

Good.
