$63.5 million renovation? Only cost $8 million to build it

in the late 60s. They should give it a
cooler name like Big John or Brad's Pad.
With the $60 something million football
operations center, Clemson is throwing
a lot of money around; wish they'd throw
some in my bank account.

Let's not forget about the $31 Million Renovation in '03

I expected that expenditure to put Littlejohn in good shape for a long time, but not so.


These are 2 totally different renos

That one had a few nice additions for fans like fixing the baseline seating so you could actually see the whole court, scoreboard with video, and additional concessions. For the actual team they added the "annex" which only ma finally improved practice facilities, and they added a nicer but still way behind locker room and players facility.

The major part of that reno was the roof and building facility upgrades that had to be done for the building to survive.

This renovation is all inclusive like it should be with the 1 MAJOR improvement being for the team. The fans will have some nice additions but the facility for players, coaches and team functionality is what was needed most. I'm glad they're getting that right. Bigger practice facilities, training room, and player facilities to attract the best.

Agreed. Recruits aren't lured by fan amenities. Recruits want to see where they'll be if they go to school at Clemson. And that's in the brand new practice facility and player areas.

should be 1000 seats around the court for students!

I agree. You really can't compare it to Duke with all the students they have right near the court.

Why? So they can be empty all season?


They wouldn't be empty, because...

I read that the courtside area for students will be not be

individual seat but bleachers, so that the group of students occupying that area will appear to be more than the officially designated seating.

Sort of like The Hill at football games.

Honestly, the area of Duke students that you see on TV isn't really all that large. It just happens to be in direct line with the TV cameras and it's on risers so the kids are standing packed together.

definitely bleachers

Just wondering if we got a good deal. Bon Secours in Greenville cost 91 million in 2016 dollars. A much bigger and more professional arena. Just wondering.

We don't need a bigger arena. And Littlejohn will look plenty professional post-renovation I believe.

This cannot help but make us a more desireable place for recruits who have that high on their list of importance. I just hope we pick up and start winning in BB, and this can only help. We'll argue the money then. Right now, I think we need something to get us back in the game. This should do that. Now on to the Jimmys and Joes.
