    Our baseball throws at the end of 95% of our games that we are losing by a couple points could be hurt by the lower ceilings too

    Just some perspective on where the 50 mil dollar renovation and reduced 9200 seat arena will put us in the valley facilities wise..

    Missouri State-JQH arena built brand new in 2008. 67 mil (76 mil today) and is 11,000 seats
    Northern Iowa-McLeod Center built brand new in 2006. 26 mil (31.5 today) and is 7,000 seats
    Loyola- Gentile Arena, they renovated a 15 year old building in 2011. 15 mil (17 today) and is 5,000 seats
    Drake-Knapp Center was built in 1992 for 12.5 mil (22 today) and is 7,000 seats
    Southern Illinois- SIU Arena was renovated in 2011. 30 mil (33 today) and is 8,500 seats
    Illinois State- Redbird Arena built in 1989. 17.5 mil (35 today) and is 10,200 seats
    Evansville- Ford Center was built in 2011. 127.5 mil and is 10,000 seats
    Valpo-athletics-Recreation center was built in 1984. 7.25 mil (17 today) and has 5,000 seats
    Bradley-Carver Arena/Peoria Civic Center renovated in 2007 (not sure if all or any was to the actual arena?? I went there Odum's senior year and nothing looked freshly done in the bball arena). 55 mil (69 today) and 10,000 seats

    Has anyone else heard besides me, that the H.C. renovation is now a NO GO?

    There's only been ONE BID for $50 million, and someone has determined separately that the HC roof is shot. And the bid doesn't include the roof.

    Haven't heard this and I live local. I haven't seen any activity around there so it has had me wondering. I'm sure Golden will investigate once he sees this.

    Given the age of the HC, I find it almost totally unbelievable that a new roof was not part of the original project. It just doesn't make sense to do it anyother way.

    Any idea who the bidder was?

    Part of the problem with the timing of the project is the construction market is already flush with projects (at least in central Indiana). The contractor(s) bidding the job are likely only going to bid with a number that has a nice margin if they are going to take on another project.

    Hey Gotta Hav... where did you hear this? I have searched and can't find any mention of a problem anywhere. Who is the "someone"? can you say.. what is your opinion on the validity of the info?

    thanks

    The project was supposed to start before graduation originally, but then it got put back until after graduation. My source, is a Terre Haute area legislator. There was only one bid and it came in over $20 million higher than the budget. Indiana State is going to have to find the money somewhere to make up the budget loss. The project has yet to start, and it’s way behind schedule. - From my "Source"...

    That's all I have for now. Regardless, like someone else said, this is the most disappointing news to hear about ISU sports and it's impact on Men and Women's Basketball...since, well there isn't anything more disappointing than this.
