On Do you think the original rules of basketball should be preserved in a new student center on campus?

blue73harley: Think you are right; the Big 12 regardless of it's member make-up is a football conference. KU is the only school in the league that is sooo hyped on basketball. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy BB, but not at the expense of football as it has hisorically been at KU. Been attending both BB and FB games since 1951 and went to the opening of Allen in 1954.

I have heard of an unknown place on campus called the "Spencer Museum of Art". Supposedly, it is secure and a place for everyone to see art, crafts, artifacts, and maybe memorabila of an historical nature. Hmmm!!! Did anyone think about putting the Naismith rules there?????

Create a little museum in an existing building, and charge people money to see the damn thing. Done.

First, they must be hermetically sealed in envelopes & placed in a #2 mayonnaise jar to be kept under Funk & Wagnall's porch until noon...

How about you build another Allen Fieldhouse, that is actually modern and comfortable, and then put it there?

Just to build a building is short sighted. We have too much of that as it is. With any building there are more cost than just brick and mortar.

I think they should be preserved, but not put on public display, too many liabilities and chances of theft or loss. They should display a nicely done copy. The problem as I see it is, if they build a new building payed for by donor's. That is all well and fine. BUT!!! Who is going to pay the staff, the bills, the maintenance, to run the building for the next 50 years? Then any remodelling, improvements etc? Kansas taxpayers. If the athletic dept. is going to foot the entire bill of the above mentioned maintenance and agree to never ask the taxpayer to pony up. Then go for it.

Shouldn't they be in Allen Fieldhouse? That makes the most sense to me.

It depends upon who is paying for it.

The original rules should be preserved, but to build a new building is a waste of money. Who's minding the store over there anyway?
