I'm split.  That money will sure help us out a ton right now, but I can't help but think that this is short sighted.  

And the orange matching the track looks terrible.  Match the school colors - the place looks unfinished.

Matches the track.  It is a good look.  Not sure what color you want to call it.

The steel itself is not orange.

Am I reading this right - men's golf is now safe?

Is this the result of a compromise with the Richards family? 

Depends on how much UND gets for the land sales.  Negotiations have involved the family, to some extent, but mostly the group that's been privately keeping MG afloat the past 2 seasons.

Loss of trust among potential donors.

It highlights how desperate we are to get Phase II going. It’s usually not wise to sell land.

How could that group get UND to commit to selling its own property to endow men's golf when UND wasn't willing to fund it 2 years ago?

Stunning.  NDSU decided to go with white and green steel, rather than orange like us.

Donate to have it painted how you'd like it.

Isn't that Kennedy's decision?  I don't think he will fly to where I am to discuss it.  ;)

Pretty sure he doesn't need to fly to Gamble Hall to discuss it with you. About a 5 minute walk will do. :p

There has been talk of a University Village for some time.  There is much more to this story than the Herald knows.

With the cement walkway and more permanent-in-nature construction of the bleachers, I can understand a bit more why the cost is so high now.  Will the walkway eventually extend across the south end of the building?  I believe that was how the initial sketches had it.
