Bradley Center Carcass pic

Saw this on Reddit:

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.

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.

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.

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

while far from a great arena...many great memories.  i'm 35...season tickets have been in the family my entire life...i'm sure my memory isn't perfect...but many great badger games (wade's dominance being the one i remember best).  watching mu students/fans follow badger fans around the BC chanting "a$$ wholes".  i was pretty young at the time, but i remember standing for nearly the entire game when we beat memphis state...i believe they were ranked 1 or 2...had lorenzen wright at the time?  watching larry hughes torch us as a freshman.  mu beating uconn off a huge game from novak as we entered the beast.  the nice old couple that had season tickets next to us and would bring treats for me to eat.  freeway talking smack.  watching some amazing cincy teams...while watching huggins lose his sh!t.  jingling my parents keys when damon keys would shoot free-throws.  always grabbing the 10 jersey on my basketball teams because i wanted to be tony miller.  trying to comprehend at a young age what mike deane was all about.  bo ellis letting me be ball-boy.  mu basketball at the bc was as important as anything to me as a kid.  so many great memories.   

not mu related but bc related...watching harold "baby jordan" miner take on jon barry.

I did like the Bradley Center. Yet, it was cold. No color. The Fiserv Forum has style. I really like the upper deck concourse better than the lower at FF.

That Jack Daniels area behind the basket on the Westside is neat. The black floor and nightclub style lights gives it class. Panaroma Club is outstanding! Southside market is a cool feature to local restaurants. Any where you walk your not shut off from the sound or at times view of the action.

And not a single Buzz game mentioned.  That’s how you know this is Chicos.

As an aside, anyone remember the dudes who dressed in gorilla suits for that ‘96 Memphis game?  Mike Deane said he’d pick up their dry cleaning bill on the postgame show.  Good times.

The place rocked when I went to MU and visiting teams did not like to play in front of 8-9000 fans which back then was a large crowd.

I came back here last week, but will keep appearance limited.  Billy Hoyle isn't me and I'm not him.  Or the other nonsense accusations here.  Buzz is Buzz.  A very good coach.  There were some amazing players and teams under his direction.  There were other issues that I didn't care for nor did others. He moved on, so have I.

Back to your accusation, I would actually push back on Mr. Hoyle's remarks about GA (assuming he meant General Admission for students) since I was the Asst AD of Marketing at the time and worked for over a year to get GA instituted before Crean was even hired.  I had to work with multiple university departments, Dean of Student Life, Student Affairs, ultimately had to get buyoff from Father Leahy.  Also worked with students to get their buy in, including the Student Athletic Board we started...some of which post here  (The Lens and others).  GA was in the works LONG before TC, and took a ton of convincing of many people through hard work to get it across the finish line.  A great success in my opinion as it is still being done today. 

Separately I had advocated for students in the lower section on both sides of the basket, too.  That was shot down due to financials not supporting the move, but I see Marquette is doing it now some 20 years later.  Some ideas are head of their time.....  ;)

Swung by the ticket office at the FF and walked past. Could see into the east atrium and saw clear through to the west side of the arena, as they're taking out the lower bowl.

Saw a couple of people going to that door on State to take pics. I'm a little surprised more haven't snuck in.

Mike Deane used to toss around $100 bills for anyone who wanted to host a party on campus.  The fact we don’t have a MIKE patch on our uniform is ridiculous.

Anybody notice that Cheeks showed up and posted once or twice a day for a week and a half, and then on 11/27 Cheeks went full on Chicos?  Guess who has gone missing since 11/27?

That's right, the Cubs fan himself, warriordad!  Hmm...

I love how by the scoop Illuminati count, there's at least three different Chicos accounts active in this thread alone.

And not a single Buzz game mentioned.  That’s how you know this is Chicos.


I moved away from Milwaukee and did not see any home games during that era. Some road games and BE Tourney games. I simply chose not to attend any Buzz home games and spend significant amounts of money on travel to support him and what he was doing to the program's reputation.

And sorry to disappoint, but I'm not that self-promoting loon Chicos. Just an alumnus and fan.
What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Maybe WarriorDad simply is so intimidated by the mere presence of chicos that he stopped posting a dozen or more times per day, as he had been before Cheeks showed up.

Ah ... Scoop fun!

While it’s hard to tell from the outside, a team of contractors has been laboring for months now to gut the inside of the structure.  That work will become highly visible on the morning of Sunday, January 13th, when a series of shaped charges will detonate. The resulting impact won’t cause the building to implode, but will instead separate the roof from the structure.

The shape charge--the shape charge indicates that they are technically proficient. Proficient enough to go in on the prowl.

It was pretty neat this weekend going to two Panther games and the MU game on Sunday to see this dock door open on the south side of the Bradley Center. You can see right in all the way thru the BC's seating bowl. Also, the east side atrium in filled with boulders and rocks. Crazy to see!!

I thought about taking my son to this, but apparently you need a friend with a high floor at the Moderne to see anything. I wish they’d blow it up completely for theatrics.

I was down there in case any medical was needed. Here's my angle. Love the delay of sound travel, you can see the explosion before you hear the boom:
