Transcript What do you W hat we Ve got.. .along with the grass football fields, there are also fields used by intramurals and the marching band. The John Hoff Tennis Courts and Cougar Field will be moved for the new facility.-Graphic by Tubad Productions What we're getting...The two story building will contain a full-size Astroturf football field that can be removed, and the floor used for other sports, such as tennis, basketball and track. The facility will house athletic offices for coaches, a gift shop, training and weight room and the UH Hall of Fame. Cougar Field will be moved to accommodate the new building and lighting will be installed. The tennis courts will also move, and be lighted. Locker rooms and offices in Hofheinz Pavilion will be renovated, using part of the donated money-Graphic by Tubad Productions BUILD w, hen John and Rebbecca Moores decided to give $51.4 million to the University, the Athletic Department was the biggest benefactor. Almost half of that donation, $25 million was earmarked for the building of a new athletic facility. The two story building, to be located behind Hofheinz Pavilion facing Cullen, will contain a full indoor practice field, new offices, complete weight room and a training facility. New lighted tennis courts and a slightly moved andlighted Cougar fieldarealso included in the deal. Locker rooms and a new grandstand will also be added, in hopes of attracting more - fans in night games. The gift, part of the largest private donation given to a public university, came as a re sultoftheCougarstooka crushing defeat in football to the Miami Hurricanes in September. with $25 million? asuccessfulathleticprogram,thecommunitywill be more inclined to offer support, and donations to the whole university. Athletic Director Rudy Da valos said the UH has been competing at a disadvantage with other schools, due to the quality of our facilities. 'We're not fighting against cannons with slingshots anymore." "The money is totally for funding construction and refurbishment of facilities," said Davalos. Noneof the money given toathletics will fund student scholarships, pay coaches and staff, or help run theexpensive Athletic Department,so fund-raisingremainsim- portant,aswellasattract- ingoutstandingathletes. University planners are intent on combining the new Alumni Organization (AO) building with the photo by Adrees Latif new athletic facility.The TheMooresattendedthegameas guests of late president Marguerite Ross Barnett, who encouraged the idea of a large donation to the university, but no-one expected it to be that large. Barnett told the Daily Cougar that the Moores asked what it would take to bring a big-time sports program, like Miami's to UH. "I mentioned the improvement of facilities would help us on the basis of recruiting. I had a modest notion of what it would take to improve our facilities, but he wanted a state-of-the-art facility," said Barnett. 'Now I'm glad we lost to Miami, but I wouldn't say that in front of Coach John Jenkins." The donation of so much money caused several letters to the editor and some silent protests, trying to tell the Moores that there money had been misspent. John Moores said, "I have made it clear that my first priority is not athletics, but I thought this gift would be the first to bear fruit. Our intention is that this gift be viewed as a start."

Moores was concerned that there would not be enough money for the AO building and many members of the alumni facility's planning board were also in favor of the combined complex.
