After several decades of visiting all parts of the athletic campus at all hours, I continue to be amazed at the brilliance of some of the new buildings...
Tonight, leaving the basketball game after dark, I saw for the first time the stairwells of the East building (what are we going to call the big new side-buildings? Pavilions? I think that would be the right term. It would be fitting to call one of them the Martin Pavilion) all lit in Blue; I can picture the whole thing being lit that way; it will look like a Blue Oz. Absolutely fantastically cool. Like a blue glow coming out of the interior of the stadium.
The stadium renovation and the Glick Fieldhouse are really such pure, state-of-the-art facilities. If you've been to see all the other schools in the conference, you'll know that they are mostly all nice campuses, some of them with some great features. There's no better "football campus" anywhere. I've heard about the famous OSU weight room. (Pracitcally the only school in the conference that has anything as good or better than anything we've got.) I regard it as merely a target; we'll have its equal someday, and then we'll be beating them in every way imaginable again.
In terms of our facilities improvements, I think Bill Martin's tenure and legacy will compare very favorably with Yost, Crisler and Canham.
