While speaking at the Baton Rouge Rotary Club on Wedneday, LSU Women's Basketball coach Kim Mulkey made some brutally honest comments about the Pete Maravich Assembly Center and how it needs to be renovated or replaced.

quote:

LSU women’s basketball coach Kim Mulkey says the time has come to either do a major renovation to the Pete Maravich Assembly Center or replace it with a new arena.

“It’s time,” Mulkey said Wednesday, speaking to a packed meeting of the Baton Rouge Rotary Club in the South Stadium Club at Tiger Stadium. “That thing is 48-years old. You can’t grab a rail without holding onto somebody.

“I can say this now. I just won a national championship.”

Cool. Show us how much profit the WBB team made this year while winning the NC. Don’t forget to include your salary as an expense.

More people watched the WBB NC game than watched the men's OT football victory against Alabama. Reese went viral. It's called branding and yeah it's worth alot of money to the school. Mulkey is worth every penny she makes and more.

What? TD just used an actual news story about LSU from The Advocate instead of feeding us more illegal aliens fighting or pimping more instahos?

Are we under new management or something?

Still needs to be Pete Maravich Center. Now the floor is another thing entirely. Imagine if you may KM wins 3 more Natty’s.
The men’s practice facility- Brown & the women’s practice facility- Gunter

If you talked to national consultants who do this kind of thing, none of them would recommend renovation. DEMO time.

This lady understands leverage. Kinda hard not to listen to her.

And it’s hilarious how your women’s basketball coach has way more power than the men’s

Leverage? WBB still is a loss financially even after winning the NC. Give us a break.

The players had to stop practicing when our Kinesiology class used the practice court. The PMAC is too small for the twenty first century. The weight room is a joke. The players are competing with courses for hoop time. The men and women’s teams need distinct facilities. It’s not rocket science. We need to demand more than paw paw’s worn out tightie whitie with poo stains stadium.

Stadiums don’t come for free…how much would you personally be willing to pay for that new stadium?

We need to figure out a way to make basketball a break-even program. Coach Mulkey and her team have just taken the first step. She has every right to ask for a new facility. It would help if the men’s team showed any signs of getting on track.
