    Construction underway on indoor facility

    The walls going up now are for the offices. The two main offices are different sizes and I guess McDermott and Fennelly got into a big beef over who got the bigger one.


    This is facing east and the mens court will be on this side and the womens on the other.


    This is from the south side looking north. Womens on the right and mens on the left.


    And, of course I am lying about the different sizes of the offices just in case anyone took that seriously!!

    Re: Construction underway on indoor facility

    Re: Construction underway on indoor facility

    These were taken right at 3:00 today and they are still pouring the foundation at the very southwest corner. The offices will be in the middle and the mens court will be on the west side and the womens will be on the east side. I'll try to take and post periodic photos to show the progress.

    Re: Construction underway on indoor facility

    I love the fact that somewhere right now some guy read the first line of your post and called a buddy to tell him that Bill and Mac were fighting. It'll probably be on Marty and Miller shortly, or at least on Carlson's blog.

    I'm glad the basketball facility is an 'indoor facility'. Would be tough to recruit if the practice facility was outdoors.

    It looks like they just let the driver tailgate it by himself with no one running the chute.

    If I was the coach that has been with the institution for a decade, in charge of a significantly more successful program, and with a career contract locked up...yes, yes I could. And I would.

    Re: Construction underway on indoor facility

    Yeah, if there actually was some disagreement about who would get a bigger office (if such situation occured), I don't think there would be any doubt about who the rightful owner of the bigger office should be. He who is here longest gets the office.

    I think we should take the roof off Hilton and become the Lambeau Field of basketball.
