No one mentioned the football program's first indoor practice bubble from the 1970's. It was located on the then-practice field above the baseball stadium, just about where the parking area is now. Similar to what there is currently (but not as fancy), it was a textile bubble inflated by fan units over a natural grass field, for practices in cold or foul weather. I believe those were the Navarro/Paul years. Maybe Naso too. After some years, the thing was destroyed by a bad storm.

I hate not-for-profits as there is so much abuse of the system. We have greedy universities charging students $60K per year and it costs more than twice as much to build a new indoor practice facility or any other building, than what it costs in the private sector. That is a blatant abuse in higher education and Congress should yank their NFP status. They'll get religion in a hurry.

It actually costs Ivy and other elite universities that much to provide their college experience. This is because there are so many highly paid professors who spend most of their time doing research and there are so many other expenses like top notch libraries and laboratories and facilities, all of which combine to create a "prestigious" ambience and brand name but do not tangibly affect the undergraduate experience.

You want Cornell to cut back on these things?

No but I want accountability on how alumni donations and student tuition is spent.
