I'm sure I missed this somewhere along the way so sorry for the repetition, but what ever happened to the permanent indoor football practice facility that Mike Houston negotiated into his contract extension? Did that go the way of the dodo bird when he left?

A "permanent" facility was not what was negotiated. An indoor facility intended to be temporary is what was part of that deal, and it was built at Sentara park in summer 2018. Ideally we will have a permanent facility someday.

Not part of the negotiations yet discussed at the time was a permanent facility over old baseball field area and a two year time frame was mentioned. Sidelined for a few years is certainly understandable even without the pandemic. Dismissing the date of construction, do we know if this that was presented is still going to happen. I know people continue to advocate having the old Convo redone for this purpose, but it appeared the old baseball area was the final decision. Input please...

I feel like there are a lot of questions right now for on campus facilities. What is the plan for dhub? Old convo? Old baseball stadiums? Very curious to see what (especially sports related) uses these areas have in the future. Personally I’d like to see dhub paved back over and used for parking/tailgating

On a positive note the landscaping around the new Phillips Hall looks very nice.
