    Re: BB facility photos

    looks very nice. thanks for posting.

    this is a great thing for isu basketball, whether you want to admit it or not. the neighsayers that are upset that it is a steel fab building and because it is not attached to hilton need to give it a rest.

    could it be better-no doubt; but it is so much of an improvement over what we have had in the past i don't know how anyone could be dissapointed.

    Best quote of the year. What is better, a facility or no facility?

    They built it just like the old days - whatever brick you had in the lot, you used. It did not have to match.

    Is that in reference to the two types of brick?

    I'm one who really wishes the original plan for a complex around and part of Hilton could've have come to be. But can't pass up on an opportunity like this.

    And I have nothing bad to say about the aesthetics of this facility. I did't realize they were painting it red. Like the color - not so sure about the look. But during construction it can always look different than the final product.

    Thanks for the pix. What's the scheduled "move in" date? Anyone know?

    There are only two. There is one spot where the bricks are wet from being washed, and the upper parts are red metal siding.

    Siding huh? That probably looks much better in person then. I knew it wasn't brick.

    Not a huge fan of the painted concrete look. Although I do admit I kinda wish they'd do something like that to Bergstrom. If nothing else - I think it'd be sweet to have a giant I-State logo on the roof facing JTS.

    It looks like a great building to sell in 10-20 years when we build Bill Fennelly/ Christy Johnson practice facility adjacent to Hilton Coliseum.

    Re: BB facility photos

    Where is this thing? I thought it was on Mortenson but I couldn't find it. We went east from South Dakota. Was I on the wrong road or not far enough West?

    It's more on Dakota than Mortensen, about a block north of Mortensen on the west side.
