Our long term ability to be one of the top 3 programs every year in the Horizon League (a relatively attainable goal) hinges on the basketball practice facility. The draw of it is undeniable. The Kress Center, which admittedly for men's basketball is a private practice court close to training, weight and locker rooms (the former two communal with all sports), has been a huge boon for recruiting. GB has pulled in much better players in the past eight years than they did in the previous eight (not to knock guys like Ryan Evanochko, just recruiting as a whole). We have the worst practice situation in the country. If we're going to hold up our end of that bargain, we're going to need to fix that problem.
That's definitely a possibility. I also think that we just flat-out have too many campuses. There's no need for there to be 13 four-year schools. In the age of the internet, the state would save a whole lot of money by closing as much as half of the UW campuses (2-year and 4-year) and putting some money into getting internet access to every corner of the state, to maximize the UW System online degree that this liberal thinks is the best thing the Walker administration has done. A few of those two-year schools should have their operations absorbed by GB and Oshkosh. We should absorb UW-Waukesha, which has already been discussed at length.
I would like to point out that Ohio is significantly larger than Wisconsin. They have only one more four-year school than Wisconsin has. That might be the problem right there.
