    And Cruz would not win a contested convention. It would be someone like Romney or Ryan.

    Replacement for Schwitzer isn't "historic" or something unknown. This will have major $$$ the likes of which BU hasn't seen before.

    They would surely be better than any of the current options, but no, that's not happening.

    Mega donation/plans with $$$ would make a lot of sense.

    If it's something that's already known there's going to be a lot of people disappointed.

    Something in honor of Andrew Smith? Cancer research dept etc?
    (although the announcement seems bigger than honoring some one...)

    Brad Stevens bought out the university (which should not be but undoubtedly would be confused with the other two BSU's)? G-time donated enough money to hire Title on staff?

    BU dropping hints with today's email showing Holcomb Building. Stay tuned.

    Yep. Not really a building you show in general promotional materials. Have to think it's big money, new business building. Has to be a bit more to it, though, given the broadcast.

    If that was a criteria, we wouldn't consider bringing Shelvin Mack back until he donates a dime....

    With a $25 Million gift, the business school is now the Lacy School of Business.

    True, but Shelvin doesn't spend his time aimlessly armchair quarterbacking the program.

    That is one heck of a donation. Hopefully Butler can use the momentum from this to continue to grow the COB and the University as a whole. Increasing exposure and facilities does nothing but good things for bringing in good students (and hopefully good student athletes as well).

    Quite a donation. Great day to be a Bulldog.

    No plans announced to build a new facility. Perhaps they'll just upgrade Holcomb?

    They are putting a new building behind Holcomb and next to the science building in that back parking lot area. Holcomb is going to add on to the science building from what I understand.

    I did intern interviews on campus a few weeks ago and they told me about the plan. Pretty cool - would love to see it play out where Butler will be mentioned with the big business colleges in years to come.

    That's one massive donation. Good for Butler. Hopefully this can help not only expand Holcomb but also let the school add more science programs.

    93M fundraising effort going on to renovate both Gallahue and Holcomb. Holcomb will become LAS with expanded psych department.

    Correct on expanding the science building into Holcomb, but not quite correct on the placement of the new COB building. It will go in the parking lot next to Irwin Library.

    They are quickly running out of land to build on.

    That's why they have to buy CTS.
