NASHVILLE — Earlier this week, a friend asked me if I was going to the Kentucky-Vanderbilt game and then asked me what I thought of Memorial Gym and asked me with the look that suggested I would have to be a fool to like that crazy place.
I told my friend that I loved it, which of course brought a surprised look.
The benches on the baselines. The quirky theater-type layout. The students in bleachers right up to the raised floor. The banners hanging from the rafters.
What’s not to like?
There is no other gym in the SEC quite like it, and there may not be another gym in America quite like it. That right there is enough to love Memorial Gym.
