    No question that better facilities attract better recruits. You call it "bling", to me it is the creature comforts that the players will enjoy, such as not stretching in the lobby, that attract a better class of recruit. One other thing that investing in better facilities shows to prospective recruits that a school cares about its athletic programs. On the opposite scale, letting outmoded facilities fester and rot paint an ugly picture for prospective recruits.

    How much does a new facility cost?? Since I'm counting on winning Powerball tonight, I'll donate the $$ to make it happen.

    The ballpark is $100 million.

    I was thinking more around $50-$65 million...Pegula donated $99 million to SU that endowed the scholarships for both teams and paid for the facility...ND's facility was around $45 mill

    Let's hope the lady that won is a huge UConn/Whaler fan.

    She is from Chicopee, Mass

    ADDB and Malloy need to find out what her favorite sports teams are

    Pegula was around $85-90 in early 2010 numbers, Agganis was around $100 in 2005 numbers so that's what I drew from. Didn't know ND built Compton so cheap, though I guess it makes sense as it doesn't have quite as extensive of a structure as HAA. Perhaps the $50-75 million would be more doable, but it would also depend on how big they went, what type of amenities went inside, how much site excavation would be required, etc.

    No hockey team will agree to a noon game after a night game the night before. It's absolutely unprecedented in college and even rare in the NHL. Not to mention noon games suck. UConn hockey playing second fiddle to the Wolf Pack still is a very, very bad look.

    They need to fix his mouth/tongue - he looks like he's gagging on a mouse.

    This makes me feel better.

    Maybe it was just Tage leaving, but it felt like we were losing more production.

    The University of Nebraska Omaha built a 7,800 seat ice arena for approximately 82 million.

    Agreed. Cav has to get at least five years with 18 rides on the bench before this would even be considered.

    Bastards. I got booted from my season seats to make room for that shat. I now have the first two rows above it, so we will see how long it lasts. To boot, we got reprimanded frequently for banging on the glass. Now the wolfpack advertises to come bang on the glass. Head bang
