Saw the 1968 Rose Bowl live. Was there in Tempe for the greatest college football game ever. Flew the OSU flag while stationed in Afghanistan.

That's two separate questions. Covelli Arena will soon be built as a home for wrestling, volleyball, gymnastics, etc. You don't name something for what is probably your second-largest donor and not build it. Plus they also have a $2.5M gift for a wrestling practice facility. Eventually, St. John will be torn down & become green space/intramural fields in the latest long-range plan.

HDTV is a big part of it. OSU is stuck with VCA. They are still paying it off. They aren't going to pull a Richfield Coliseum and level it. In fact, Smith has already announced a project to "spruce it up." They won't move back to St. John as it requires massive repair if they keep it long-term and no suites. Hockey would do well with a 5K arena for both men & women with separate practice ice, but can you afford sinking that much capital into sports that don't break even?

Yes, he announced the game. There was a long pause after Rosa recovered the fumble & Then his comment referenced in the article about making some people mad & some upset. I thought he was the latter.
