    Good news. 5 million should be a nice upgrade.

    Up until 1967, interracial marriage was illegal in the US. How many people were alive in 1967? In 1958, only 5% of America approved of it. 1991 - 48% approved. 2007 - 78% approved. We have come a long way but have a long way to go.

    Actually great news, but will they be able to raise the money, while fund raising for the Indoor practice facility...maybe easier said than done.

    they have a ton of projects going on at once. Since football is king, they will more than likely get the donations first. Once we can crack 30 million, raising 5 seems like chump change

    How about an 80' high wind break surrounding the entire complex and underground heating like Lambaeu Field. Need to make it useful for more than 2 weeks per year. Second thought just put a roof over it

    Definitely needed and deserved for a championship program. When this new track project and IPF are completed, all the facilities appear to be updated.

    Softball IPF, and volleyball could probably use another behind the scenes upgrade(locker rooms, offices, etc).
