Bradley Center Carcass pic

It was cold. It was horrible. It was not made for Basketball. Every seat felt a million miles away. If you had to go to the bathroom there would not be any eye-line to the court or TV in sight. Stairwells that went to nowhere. Worst food and beer options ever except for the one stand with spotted cow and river west stein hidden in the corner. The worst sounding concerts ever with the upstairs covered in tarps to not look so empty.

But Damnit it was ours. For the fans that were die hards through the Redd and Brandon Jennings years this was ours. $70 scalped lower level playoff tickets. Blacked out drunk regular season game with only your friends and the squad 6 fan section in a mostly empty Arena. Not an attractive girl in sight.

I will miss you Bradley Center. I bet you would have been a great professional hockey Arena.

Thanks for the memories.

Many great moments in my life at the Bradley Center. I'm glad to see it go, because it's blocks the view to Fiserv Forum.

Not horrible in my opinion.  Saw some NCAA tournament games there, some great wins by Marquette over ranked teams.  Wish I had seen more over the years.  Had its role and served MU and Milwaukee well.

Wrong chicos.  Putting what happened in the building aside, prolly the worst designed stadium i have ever been in and provided a poor home court advantage.

Aside from the actual bowl of the arena, I’ll take the Bradley Center.

The concourses at the Forum look cheap. At the BC, the concourses May have been a bit dated but they didn’t look cheap.

Good job with the GA seats for students, kin.

Saw some great wins there no doubt, but MU lost too much there for my liking, no home court advantage..I won't miss it.

False.  That place was rocking in the early BEast days and was absolutely a tough place for competition to play.  Unfortunately when not full it’s cavernous and not loud at all.

As college basketball goes, we were lucky to have had the Bradley Center, in my opinion. Of course I like FF more because it's brand new and has many upgrades from the BC, but I never really saw anything wrong with the BC.
That's a nice doll you have there Frank.

Yeah thanks, she's ok.

For about 12 years (1988-2000), it was one of the premier venues.  From a recruiting perspective, it was also the home of the NBA, so that was very helpful.  The upper deck was ridiculously large, obsolete, and often empty, but it could be very noisy when the moment was right.  Overall, it was an upgrade from the Arena in terms of comfort, and it helped keep the program in the big leagues of college sports.

That picture really shows the worst part of the BC...the fact that there were so many seats in the upper deck...my goodness!

.
My expectations for 2018-19 to be considered a success:

23+ total wins
12-13 Big East conference wins
125th or better KenPom defensive rating
Top 25 ranking in polls at some point in season
Top 6 seed in NCAA tourney
At least one NCAA tourney win

Disagree chicos.  How can one say putting aside what happened in the building? Isn't that where the games are played?  I've been in my share of sports buildings that were worse and our home court advantage was pretty good considering the start of that building had some awful MU basketball teams.  The Palace in Detroit (Auburn Hills), Sacramento Kings arena, All State arena, old Richfield coliseum where the Cavs played.  Nassau coliseum.  Others

This is something we can probably all agree on.  Quote from a Chicago friend when we attended an MU game in Rosemont after renovations: "see how far we are from an aisle?  And this is the improved version of this dump."

Or Freedom Hall.

The biggest negative of the BC was the number of seats in the upper bowl, though that design was probably due to wanting the suites as close to the action as possible.  It was such a different atmosphere down below and when Crean got GA the atmosphere changed.  I'll never forget the electricity in the building for the 2002 Cincy game (11 am tip-off), and the Louisville game later that year (national TV, Dicky V in the house). Novak's shot to beat ND in 2005, the entire 2003 season. Even when we weren't that good the place came alive - St. Bonaventure NIT game in 1995, #4 Iowa State in 1996, top 10 Memphis in 1996 when Amal schooled Lorenzen Wright, Al's Night in 1997 against ND.

It may not have been perfect, but it was our place. So many great memories there, I'll miss it.

14000 in the fiserv will be entirely different than 14000 in the bradley as will 17000 in the fiserv be completely different than 17000 was in the bradley.  Therefore all things being equal the Bradley Center as an arena fin sucked.  IS there some sentimentality?, the we liked it because its ours, great games there etc? Sure but bottom line all emotion aside the place sucked.  Horrible sightlines and less than 15000 people the place was a mausoleum.  Show me another facility in america with 14000 people in it that was quieter n provided as little homecourt advantage.  Quite honestly its one of the reasons our home court winning percentgae was lower than it should have been.  Massive upper bowl absorbed all the crowd noise unless packed.  Again show me another college venue in America that was quiter with 14000 in it and provided a poorer home court advantage. I will patiently wait for reponses.

d.  Again show me another college venue in America that was quiter with 14000 in it and provided a poorer home court advantage. I will patiently wait for reponses.

I don't know any arena that was "quiter" than the BC or if this counts as a "reponse," but immediately off the top of my head: Madison Square Garden, whatever G-town's arena is called these days, Allstate and the Prudential Center right in our conference. I remember going to a game at SLU in their 20,000 seat arena during the 2001-02 season and that was depressing as well.

Outside of the conference: Ohio State's arena, NC State's arena, even the Dean Dome traditionally hasn't been known as a loud place other than during games against Duke.

Is this billy, chicos, hoopaloop, warrior dad or whom.  A psychiatrist’s wet dream.  Went to Aalstate many a time back in the day with 14k and that place was Loud!!!!!!! .  Problem is most people under 40 have never seen more than 4k in it for a bball game.  A loud old barn,  wooden roof, tight seats, place got loud!!  Swing and a miss Sybil
