    Maybe Larry can move indoors, and they'll include space for an ISU athletics museum and an ISU store. I hope they visit the Joyce Center at Notre Dame for some ideas. ND took an even older facility and made it a first class arena experience.

    Now that's a wonderful idea!! Museum and store! You know... John Wooden graduated from ISU (graduate degree/MS) and ISU was the head coaching gig that got him the job at UCLA. I think they need something more than a court for John Wooden. These two ISU graduates were/are considered by some to be the greatest contributors to basketball worldwide, athletic competition... and were/are simply, very, very successful individuals. Not one, any, college or university can compare. If ISU can't create some sort of shrine/museum with these two individuals highly included - a brain transplant is in order. LOL really, John Wooden, his Leadership ideas are being transferred to the business world every day! The greatest coach of all time. Larry Bird, the greatest player of all time and business professional!!

    While John Wooden was coaching at ISU - he had a great team - made the tournament and refused to send his team because the committee told him he had to leave his African American player in Terre Haute! He made a stand that sent a quake through the coaching ranks at the time! The true meaning of TEAM and fair treatment of all!!!

    Not the place for this but:
    After Pearl Harbor Wooden joined the Navy, where he served four years and was promoted to Lieutenant. When his military duty was finished, he was hired to teach and coach at Indiana State Teachers' College (now known as Indiana State University). In his first season as coach, his Sycamores won the conference title and a berth in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) tournament. Coach Wooden personally rejected the invitation, because African-American players were not permitted to compete. "Clarence Walker was on my team," Wooden said years later, "and, well, he wasn't one of the ones that got to play very much. But they wouldn't let him come, so I wouldn't go to the tournament."

    The next season, Indiana State repeated as conference champions, and the tournament changed its rules and allowed black players. Wooden's benchwarmer, Walker, became the first African-American to play in the NAIA tournament. In two seasons at Indiana State, Wooden's teams went 47-14, and the next year he was offered the job at UCLA.

    The plan moves forward. It stands at $75.8M right now. Wonder how much they'll pare that down before it's done?
