This has probably been talked about, but I am starting to think that the Basketball Facility was the rumored 'Good News' that people started discussing back in May. It certainly was excellent news, but I was hoping for the lead donor....
I would guess in light of other state headlines now, that the appropriate time to announce this may now be the day of the first game. Pure speculation on my part, but it'd be a great time to do it. Think about a morning presser that day to break the news and get everyone nice and fired up for the game that night. Also, perhaps then a artist rendering could sit proudly in front of the Jacobson building for the season.

It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'
