Not sure what it is, but there's an announcement at 10:30 this AM.  Something big regarding Drake athletics.   For those on social media, I'd say monitor your feed this AM for more info.

No clue what this is.  Maybe McB finally opened the checkbook and will match Suzie Burt's donation.

I heard we're joining the Big 10.
ACC offered but travel costs were too high.

I wonder what kind of renovations they'll be doing. What kind of updates can 2 million dollars buy?

This is awesome. What an incredible off-season for Drake. Between Suzie's gift, the new development, and now this, the momentum and excitement for the university is palpable.

Matthew Bain from the register just tweeted, "Among other things, Hardin said they're looking at replacing the seats in the Knapp Center and creating more of a bowl-shaped, intimate arena setting with seats closer to the court."

I don't think all of them were there, I imagine some had class, so I don't know if it would mean anything either way.

Making the first row of seating a permanent bowl would create an awesome atmosphere, especially if they moved the seats closer to the floor.

They won't do permanent seating I wouldn't think as it is used for VB team camp, used for Football practice if it rains, also nice to have the extra hoops when you do practice in the Knapp so you can do more shooting.  Hopefully they can still be retractable?  Did they fix the sound system last year?? That I know is expensive as well.   GREAT gift and $1 million will help men's basketball a lot.

Sounds like they’ll be improving travel a lot. I know that’s something they’ve talked about before.
