The quiet behemoth in Austin: Frank Erwin Center

A date with destiny in Austin as Tech squares off with the Longhorns. Is the Erwin Center a premier venue?

Crowd: D

The Erwin center is huge, with a capacity of 17,900. It is absolutely too big, but even if Texas reduced the size, the crowds would suck. Texas fans are unbelievably fickle, and will not show up unless the team is incredible.

Hell, even if the team is all that they may not. Even when they do show up, the size of the venue and their lack of passion makes it a dead environment.
