Last I heard, Nova was cancelling its "Future of Villanova Athletics" tour while they worked on a more credible future of athletics plan.
Early offerings from the tour were a possible renovation of the Pavilion for $75M or $80M that would likely reduce slightly the capacity of our 6,500 Pavilion.
So what is the current plan? Is a new arena in the discussion for those deciding Nova's future?
The Pavilion is the second lowest capacity primary home in the new Big East, including the new programs. Thank you St Johns for being last.
DePaul is looking to improve their arena position. Even with little on court success, they have a formal team together to improve their position and are looking to build a new arena. Even DePaul.
Even in the Big 5 our Pavilion doesn't rank well. Our home capacity is only 3rd of 5.
So what is Nova doing? What is our plan? Do we have a plan? Do we have anyone planning?
The Future of Villanova Athletics? Silence.
