Detroit AD brings news to Panther fans

Behind the scenes this has been discussed quite a bit, but no one has put this out in the open until today.  With the University of Detroit Mercy’s Detroit Titans in town is Keri Gaither, the Athletic Director for the Titans.  When traveling, Horizon League members tend to rub elbows with each other.  Gaither tweeted about the Panthers options for the arena, including the quiet possibility for the university to purchase the U.S. Cellular Arena from the Wisconsin Center District.

Personally, everyone here knows that I’m all for building the arena on-campus.  The U.S. Cellular Arena has some very enticing things going for it: its central location is easy for nearly everyone to get to, the seating has great sight lines, and small construction costs.  But there are bad problems to go along with the Cell, as I’ll get to that later.

In the meantime, take this news and run with it.
