    The Lantern - Athletic Department: Basketball practice facility needs $17.4 million more

    The Lantern - Basketball facility would provide practice area, award storage

    I just sent $5 and a box of old Robin Yount and George Brett baseball cards to help out with the fund-raising. I hope that closes the gap significantly.

    You should at least ask them to name the building after you if you are going to pay for it.

    Not going to happen anytime soon without a much bigger increase in the profit area.

    Just for the long term, I understand the compromise but do not like it (or agree with it). Considering what the competition is doing -- this is an Arms Race afterall -- downsizing may not be the best idea for the long term (unless the new plans call for negligible differences).

    Fundraising is part of the Director of Athletics job and Ohio State just gave Gene Smith a raise. Start fundraising with vigor.

    It somewhat makes me irate that myself and my family donate a good amount annually and the athletic department is building a $5 million boathouse rather than filtering money to more viable sports.

    However, I'm sure if Matta's team does well in the NCAA Tournament in the next few years, that would help in terms of fundraising.

    Define "more viable." Student athletes in sports other than basketball and football deserve opportunities to find personal growth through athletics.

    Well, those other schools might be making practice facility improvements and some renovations, but the Schott is still a lot more impressive facility than almost any other arena in the Big Ten.
