Yeah. That was a terrible name I used while stationed there without realizing I couldn't change it. So now it's more broad... Coast Guard. Lol

So just how did ODU afford that? I assume they're working with the same constraints that we are.

They have more students and therefore more alumni to give. Their bball program was successful for years and although mediocre of late still able to shake the donors for change. Football has been great for them and generated a lot of local interest and thus sponsors.

Opportunity for my yearly rant. The parking situation at Kaplan is an embarrassment. We want more people to come, but we take up a giant section with trailers for... I don't even know what now. Last Saturday game people had nowhere to park - what is going to happen for the gold rush game?!?!

They have a plan, of sorts.

Not as good a plan as "get the dang trailers out of the Hall lot", but it's something.

ODU was pushing for this practice facility while they were still playing in The CAA . At halftime of one of their NCAA tournament games, while still in the lonely CAA, they had an assistant AD or such, on their local broadcast pushing for $$$$ for this building. So, it took awhile but they got what they wanted and what they needed.
