Oregon State opens 'game-changer' facility


07:18 AM ET 06.13 | Keeping ups with the Joneses in Oregon isn't easy, but the Beavers are trying. [Earlier this week, the Oregon State athletic department] took a brief break from its baseball craze to celebrate the opening of the Oregon State basketball practice facility, a state-of-the-art building featuring four stories, two courts, offices for both coaching staffs, locker rooms, training and medical areas, a players' lounge and plenty of mementos from Oregon State's basketball past. ... "This is a game-changer," said former OSU standout A.C. Green, a 16-year NBA veteran who played at Oregon State from 1981-85. "This is what recruits want to see." ... This was a three-year project that took $11 million worth of fundraising (OSU bonded the remaining $4 million).

Ever more plainly it appears that CBB is the stepping stone between the AAU and the NBA. I fear that colleges and universities are getting over-leveraged to provide glittering palaces to lure teenagers to spend a year in their b'ball programs. I ask

1.) What is the average tenure of a D1 men's b'baller?
2.) How is that metric trending?
3.) What is the ratio of facilities investment to revenues for D1 CBB?
4.) How is that trending?
5.) Overall, what is the rate of growth overlaid upon the revenue trend for D1 CBB?

I could have gone the rest of my life without hearing the name A.C. Green. I remember when a man was murdered and A.C.'s 2 brothers took the fall so the tim tebow mr 40yr old virgin sister Christian got off so he could go to Oregon st and return them to prominence. alot of people covered that crap up. I wanna throw up in my mouth when I hear his name all the times I had to hear him claim he's a virgin he's sister Christian. when he had a part in a mans death just like ray lewis he got away with murder. I don't have a short memory like a lot of people it seems. so let the truth be told. I sent this info to ESPN many yrs ago during his laker days. anyone ever wonder why Portland never tried to make him a Blazer. Hmmmm . that said happy fathers day to all the dads...
