University of Oregon planning most expensive campus hoops arena in nation?

University of Oregon leaders will make their biggest pitch ever to the Legislature this month, requesting $200 million in state-backed bonds to build the most expensive campus basketball arena in the nation. Lawmaker approval would create a no-money-down, 30-year mortgage that the university plans to repay with arena revenues and athletic department donations. UO's proposal pushes a debate held largely in faculty meetings to the floor of the Capitol: Is it appropriate to use public debt for a posh athletics venue while the state's universities struggle to support core academic programs? Or is the plan, which requires no cash from the state, merely a creative way to replace an ancient arena and maintain the school's national edge in sports facilities? The project's risk to taxpayers, who would be on the hook if UO couldn't repay the bonds, would be greatly diminished by a $100 million athletic department endowment created by Phil Knight, which university officials say could plug any financial gaps. -- Oregonian

New arena? I'm down for that. McArthur Court is the 2nd oldest on-campus arena still in use, I love The Pit but it's time to move forward. I have been out of the loop on this for over a year but the last I remember the new arena project was already in motion, I guess not. $200 million huh? Thats a lot of chedder! 8-o

My only question is where the hell are they gonna put a new arena? Eugene isn't exactly overflowing with real estate. I would think they would have to put it near Autzen stadium to utilize its parking lots....I dunno. :-?

Wow. That's stunning.
Last I heard, they want to put it in one of the parking areas near Autzen.

If they were to open it in two years, that could possibly entice Pryor...
he'd get to close Mac Court and open the new place... adding to a certain legacy. B-)

That would make sense, there is some room there and they could use some of Autzens lots for parking or build a parking garage. :-?

And there's that big field (where Gameday set up... twice) 100 yards in front of the main gate.
