Saluki Way Donations Almost on Schedule

Today's Southern reports that administrators in athletics are confident that donations to Saluki Way are coming in more or less on schedule, despite rumors to the contrary (the story is on the front page of the print edition--but I had to do a search to find the article online).  The story gives a figure for such donations: $9.7 million. It does not note that this represents only a small share of the project's (conservatively estimated) $76 million cost or that the majority of the funding is coming from student fees. President Poshard is quoted saying that McAndrew stadium needed to be fixed. I bet that could have been done for a bit less than $76 million.

I will review and post comments as quickly as I can. Comments that are substantive and not vicious will be posted promptly, including critical ones. "Substantive" here means that your comment needs to be more than a simple expression of approval or disapproval. "Vicious" refers to personal attacks, vile rhetoric, and anything else I end up deeming too nasty to post.
