I have never been to other Big 10 basketball venues but many of you have. Is there one that is less intimidating than Penn State? When I watch the Gophers on television from their place, it's clear that the building is huge but there are lots of empty seats and the typical Big 10 atmosphere seems missing. Northwestern has a tiny facility but the 7,000+ who showed up for Minnesota last week did seem loud and into it. Don't know about Rutgers, except that their home is also small.
