I cant figure out how to add an image- but if you google it, it was the entire lower 2 levels.

$300 million can go a very very long way in college football stadiums.

granted. but this also includes an indoor practice facility. i have no clue if that's a $15 or $50 million item. camping stadium below.





That is PRE renovations. Thats the old citrus bowl before it was completely redone. That $207 million also included new locker rooms

Don't recognize the GSB acronym. Always thought that meant "grow some balls."

Hearing from a couple different people around the Lawrence area that a single donor was ponying up a number in the $100M range.

Oh, Hadl is another last name that comes to my mind.

I grew up in Lawrence and worked with many top donor families. Doubt you "know them". We lived on 20th & Mass area. Near Simons main house. My mom was the main nurse at Eldridge Hotel for old man Simons in his hospice years in the 60's there.
