If I were Chambers I would do what I can to get some games scheduled at Rec Hall. Especially during winter break when students aren’t around. Make it an event. The fans and players would love it.
We have the Palestra on campus and it’s been abandoned. Why not create our own Big 5 type games at Penn State? Schedule Lasalle and St Joe’s and play them at Rec Hall.
I understand there are logistical and money issues that come into play, but in the long run, if you’re trying to create an exciting and unique environment, money isn’t going to be a problem.
I understand the Big Ten would never allow games to be played there, but I really believe bring that building back into the mix would be a hit during the nonconference part of the schedule.
