We have all seen it for about two years now. The athletic department unveiled the famous “Master Plan” with gleaming renderings of a transformed Ross-Ade Stadium a while ago. They have been basically a dream ever since, with the main scoreboard relocated high above the north end zone, a gorgeous new South End zone building, and so much more. Unfortunately, 9-39 over the last four years have left many of those plans in the dream stage. The performance facility attached to the Mollenkopf and the new lights at Ross-Ade Stadium will soon be complete for a cost of close to $70 million, but that is probably only a taste of what Mike Bobinski wants to do. The new Big Ten TV rights deal kicks in this year and there are some estimates that it could mean as much as $50 million this year alone for schools getting a full share (Thanks, James Smart for starting the Big Ten). –  Travis Miller, hammerandrails.comRead More
