    Yep. Softball has arguably been our most successful D1 team.

    This would
    1) help with attendance. It will never be a revenue sport obviously but some games draw a whopping 50 people and looking at the place I can understand why.

    2) Could help a little with recruiting. It's amazing how well we have recruited with D2 facilities. When recruits of other sports see crappy facilities, it just reeks small time. Bad impression.

    I was told that construction will begin later this month and be finished in early November. 550 chair back seats will be quite an upgrade from the old aluminum bleachers!

    Wow I was expecting just way better bleachers so that is one heck of an upgrade!

    They've started construction today thanks to a tweet from Coach Mueller.

    I am so sick of the Bison already. Win this, win that, blah, blah, blah. I'd really, really like to know how they do it. I swear they have to be the luckiest sob's on the planet. Just sick of this bs, just fed up.

    His tweet got them motivated to break ground?

    Doubt it will be ready by the fall games but very exciting. Can't wait til spring.
