The Master Plan is a university-wide document, so while the athletic department would've had input, it didn't have a free hand. And as I recall the SEFCU renovations were all about athletes and nothing to do with spectators, so if there are any seating/amenities improvements proposed they're recent.

Edit - 2012 Master Plan. SEFCU arena on page 120

Most of the accolades Benson gives himself are not really even "his". Most were done by or ushered by other people in the University for athletics. I think most people know that he is not a coach

I was a McElroy guy.  Fundraising was by far his biggest negative.  You have to ask people to give you money, that is sadly a big part of the job.  Dr. McElroy presided over the growth of the most suc

I thought the 'master-plan' was put together between 2010-2012 (someone please correct me if dates are off.)  Assuming this is accurate, wouldn't it have been done of McElroy's watch? Meaning the bid is going out under Benson but was planned for by others.

There is an updated master plan that is under his tenure... Athletic specific.

Exactly.  If they can, and they can if there is money, there is NO doubt that with the amenities upgrade (e.g. firecode and bathroom codes), that building can go to 6500, and that is perfect IMHO.

It wasn't much, didn't have the actual RFP, but had a contact to get the RFP document from. May have only been turf replacement. Don't remember. I look at the reporter everyday for work, but I don't get alerts for this type of stuff as it isn't what my company does. If I remember at work tomorrow I'll post. My login credentials are saved on my computer and I forget my password lol.

Lol this thread really has gone derailed. How did this become the butts in their seat thread 2.0. attention span is quite small lol. Look at the shiny thing over here.

Does anyone have anything to add about Mark Benson and his employment performance?

Title IX numbers are out for last year.  Using the Office of Civil Rights method of counting, the school is 86 spots short.  I'm pretty sure that that was year 2 of 3 of the agreement with the OCR. Benson hasn't made a lick of progress let alone resolved the issue.   Upside - doesn't look like it's gotten worse.

He's great, deserves an extension ASAP. He's particularly adapt at building new facilities and rewarding winning football coaches.
