Re: The Ryan Center at 15 Years

Went to the unveiling and remember looking up from the floor at the steepness of the upper deck and getting chills with the strong feeling of alumni ownership!

Was there for the exciting USC home opener - had incredible seats, still have a couple opening night drink cups and ticket stubs!

RR02 thinking more in line that this is largely a veteran group. The trip might not be desperately needed to develop the squad. A D1 BB team also could draw quite a bit more attention than individual or small groups of anonymous students.

Regardless it is a sad reflection of these difficult times....
