    I talked to Kevin Figaro about showers at Blackham, he said they used to bus to the athletic complex to shower after games.

    As a temp measure to get the BB court converted to a weight room before summer and still have a place to practice BB (at Blackham) they could get one of these: Mobile Shower Trailer for Sale.

    It should NEVER have taken all of this (angry fan base...conference realignment snafu) for "the powers that be" to realize they were not focused and committed to "a plan". But...the good to come out of this is that they are getting there now.

    Results will come if a commitment is made and I think now that the commitment is coming from the President and RCAF board members. The fans are there and stand ready to tender the initiative with $??

    This President is going to have to prove his commitment to continue to get money from this fan and it's going to take a lot more than words and empty promises on his part. I am in Missouri mode now...Show me.

    For starter's let's see what how he distributes the pain on the next round of budget cuts. In fact, if he wants to send an immediate message he could go back and rescind his $1.5 MM cut to athletics and distribute that more equitably.

    The master plan is certainly needed, but that is just an excuse for lack of or poor performance.

    The foundation for expansion of athletics buidls on a sound financial foundation. Nothing effective has been done to establish a sound financial foundation - even after all the years.

    Regardless of the greatness of this master plan, without the financial strength to execute the plan, it will be largely worthless.

    I am however, pleased that at least we will have a public document.

    This represents the time old question, which came first, the chicken or the egg? Without the financial support the plan will be ineffective. But without the plan & the marketing of the plan to the allumni & fan base with a great amount of dedication by the administration, there will be NO SUPPORT. The sooner the administration gets this the better off they will be. I have been supporting the university this time around for a little over a year. In that year I have now just topped the 5 grand mark in support & ticket purchases. If this administration gets it's act togeher & proves that they are serious about ahtletics there is potentially another couple of thousand people such as myself. Without that proof, they stand to lose a huge chunk of the people they now have, much less a potential pool of unmined support. Without this support this school will continue to stagnate on the rocks of life's unfulfilled potential. This would be a disgrace to those in leadership. WE NEED A PLAN!

    The Advertiser is worthless on archives (link not accurate) but something similar (to fit the situation) should have been said 6 weeks ago.
