Worth noting that at least half the sports receive marginal benefit from

the Master Plan. That includes Baseball, Softball, Men's Tennis, Women's Tennis, Squash, Men's Golf, Women's Golf, Men's Basketball, Women's Basketball, Volleyball, and Rowing. They already have their own dedicated performance and practice facilities with operations facilities built-in (or in the case of Tennis, construction has already started, and I think Rowing uses offices in McCue but don't quote me on that). For all just mentioned except volleyball, these are among the newest and best facilities in the country for each respective sport...everything baseball/softball/Boars Head/Hoops is now world class. I'm not sure there's much benefit to a central Olympic Sports building for these sports beyond a cafeteria and academic center, and perhaps sports medicine for rehab, though I think most of these sport-specific facilities host some sports medicine capability.

Football has of course been self-contained for quite some time but an upgrade in a Football Ops building is long overdue.

That leaves Men's Soccer, Women's Soccer, Men's Lacrosse, Women's Lacrosse, Men's XC/Track, Women's XC/Track, Field Hockey, and Wrestling. They need need new locker rooms, weight rooms, and operations facilities yesterday, and Wrestling needs a practice gym (not sure what they're using with Onesty taken down). Seems like such things could be accomplished well below the $180M original blow-out budget. The track facilities could be built onsite next to the track, and the lacrosse and soccer and field hockey facility centrally among the practice fields at the west and south ends of the athletics campus.
