JORDAN: MTSU’s Murphy Center a glass house of fun

 

Have you been to an MTSU men or women’s basketball game lately? If not, you need to go as a good time is almost guaranteed.

 

Let me say up front that there is a tiny downside. Parking can be an issue and the pre-game taped music is horrible and way too loud, plus the concession prices are too high. However, there’s an upside to the downside.

 

The parking problem means we’ve got plenty of fans and the situation is getting better. Eventually the pre-game music ends and the terrific MTSU pep band takes over.
