If you connect the RACC to the PE building, it would also ease the bathroom situation for football, along with the overcrowding of the gym during foul-weather halftimes.


Entrance from the parking lot could be for season ticket holders, plus any advance sales and will-calls. If handicap access is required, you don't have to have a ramp, you could put in an electric lift. A bigger problem is that especially during doubleheaders you'd have to keep those areas clear as emergency exits - the exits we have now already limit the crowd to 4,538 (from the fire marshal's sign) even though there are a lot more seats.


It's not fair to chartwell's to say they never have hot chocolate at the start of a football game; I distinctly remember a game last year when they did. Unfortunately they didn't have any cups at the time.


Knowing the Pounds' food preference, I'm surprised they didn't suggest Ford's Franks, even if they don't have them with Sauers' Kraut.

If my memory serves me correctly, the RACC used to be configured (in the D-II days) with the grandstands at the RACC Lobby ended extended, and the home team bench was at the RACC exit end of the court. The grandstands at the exit end were retracted, but I don't remember the empty space being used for anything.

The dance team has been around for a few years, in fact there are at least two teams.


The call for pep band volunteers now on the University homepage is calling for alumni and staff as well as students "Because the students leave for the holidays when there are the most number of home games". That's a problem at most schools that schedule a five week break after finals.


Both to fill the bleachers and for tactical reasons the pep band should sit behind the visitor's bench.
