The news flash reports "major renovation and addition at State Gym." If I'm remembering the right place, this building was old when I was there in the sixties. The only time I was in it was for intramurals on an old basketball court. What is it used for today?

However, I know that the university is finally going to own Hilton starting this summer so I wonder if the team will be able to practice in the Coliseum more often now
Well, at least they won't have to pay the Iowa State Center to practice there now. One thing about athletic budgets, comparing between schools is not apples to apples. Once the athletic department takes control of Hilton, they are going to have an increased budget...and larger expenses. As far as I know, they weren't even getting concession money from Hilton. Or at least not all of it. Now they should. But they'll have to pay the concession people as well as people who set up the basketball floor and clean Hilton. I guess it remains to be seen if they can run the facilities better. But the budget should look better compared to other Big XII schools....at least not far and away dead last.
