07:25 AM ET 10.23 | On Friday morning, it all begins again for Maryland, as the men's basketball team will return to morning practice at Comcast Center. After the workout ends, Coach Mark Turgeon will meet with the athletic department's operations staff to review that evening's Maryland Madness festivities at historic Cole Field House. ... [Turgeon] says the historic venue is part of the tradition that helped lure him to Maryland from Texas A&M. Sometimes, when Turgeon drives past the building that has hosted intramural sports since its closure in 2002, he remembers players like Len Bias and Adrian Branch, legends who once ruled the parquet floor. "The building's sitting right there on campus," Turgeon said he thinks to himself. "A lot of people love it, and we could make money by using it. Why wouldn't we?"

Kind of reminds me of St. John arena and its impending demise. Lot of history slated to torn down there.

I think not. There is a reason they built Comcast Center....because Cole was crumbling. Why move back to a building when the current one is only 10+ years old and just fine.
Leave Cole for the intramurals...more use that way.

...and the site of the only D-1 NCAA mens hoops championship won by a team from Texas.

The final destination on Glory Road.

If they actually do demolish St. John, I'm glad to have seen it and been in it for the Skull Session.
