I was just reading about the Corn Palace on cnn.com and learned that they seat a few thousand for basketball games,

I think it would it would be an interesting venue for a SDSU/NDSU game

Naw, too small. The Corn Palace might be a good venue for some future SDSU-USD exhibition game (since we can't play exhibitions against amateur club teams any more) but a Bison-Rabbits basketball game will need at least 7K seats . . . maybe more as the rivalry heats up in the big time.

Not only the lack of seating, the configuration of the Corn Palace is catered mostly to theatre rather than basketball. A majority of the seating is on one side of the court in a theatre/auditorium configuration, and there's a small set of bleachers on the stage, which is the other side of the court. Also, I sat in the top row of the auditorium side a couple years ago on a trip there, and I couldn't see the court/orchestra pit very well at all. Those seats might not be in high demand...

Probably you're working too hard. Try and kick back and relax for a while. ;)

The best part of the Corn Palace is the outside. Maybe the Bison bus could just swing by after a game in Brookings. ;)
