The problem that I see with LaValle is that the seating is too inclined. It wasn't designed to be a 25k+ stadium. If you go to large stadiums (I've been to a few, the most recent being Uconn's Rentschler Field) you realize that the seating tends to be more spread out but less gradient between the rows of seats. If you expand more than 25k, then the 3rd tier will be to high above the playing field.

I think its preferable to be more spread out instead of being higher above ground. But I'm not architect or engineer, I'm sure they can make it work. I'm just basing my opinion out of what I've seen...

I'm no expert, but I think stronger inclines are typical preferred. Stadiums like Michigans that are build out rather than up dont have great sight lines and don't keep the sound in as well their taller counterparts.

Funny, ive read so many times from Mich fans how their stadium packs out with 110k fans, yet its quiet.  Across the way at MSU (tiered), different story.

Stony Brook can renovate an arena for $21 million, but they can't fix the steps leading upto the arena :D

I put in my deposit of $100 in March and requested seats behind the team bench. Yesterday, I paid-off the balance  of $380. I think we will receive our tickets in September during a season ticket holder event at Pritchard Gym.

The last  couple of seasons  they have had  a "Meet The Team Night" usually in early October. Season ticket  packages are handed  then  for the Mens games and Womens Games. We have been in section 110  for awhile up in the last row. Get a pretty view of the court .
