If that is it......FAIL. This is the "BIG" announcement? This is why I was apprehensive......The University of Maine softball, women’s soccer and field hockey teams all will be playing on new fields in the near future.bangordailynews.com
First phase: new soccer field, new field hockey turf, new softball facility.
No new hockey/basketball facility, just some renovations to Alfond. Looks like new turf for football. Discussion of new indoor practice facility/standalone outdoor track facility.
It's clear this gift will help Maine cling to the bottom of Division I, not be any sort of transformation into a competitive athletic program.
