IU just announced there whole schedule and they are playing all their non conference games on the road. Maybe they are going to try to still be done at the end of September for Big Ten season and that's why they did this? Otherwise if you know you are stuck in U-Gym all or most of season why send team on road for all of non conference with they have never done. The schedule doesn't match Fred Glass' comments. This schedule is clearly put out I would think with intention of being in new facility at end of September. Whole thing makes no sense.

Thought that was odd too.

Looking at these pictures it didn't look like the project was far enough along to play volleyball games in the fall. Now Glass admitted at Huber Winery last night that it won't be ready until the winter and he mentions it at the 11:30 mark of the video:

This is the first I have heard of this and up until now we were being told IU would be playing all their volleyball games there in the fall. Now it sounds like another year of volleyball in U Gym and it will not open till close to wrestling season. Interesting IU has kept this under their hat and only tell it to the public quietly during a brief mention in a press conference. The media should of followed up after Glass mentioned this and asked him why the delay but no one did as I am not sure they are well versed enough to know the initial completion date (not a shot at them but a reality).

Good news is it sounds like the other projects are on time and will be ready when initially said. Also going back Assembly Hall finished on time as did Baseball a few years ago when it got off the ground. Also Cook Hall and the North End zone going back further did as well. In other words it is not like IU to have delays when finishing construction projects once started and I'd like to know more about why this one is running behind unlike everything else which has met or looks like it will meet its initial completion date.   

I saw that it was behind from the videoboard bid plans on the planroom website a few weeks ago. As long as it’s done right, I’m good with it.

What does this mean and what are the "video board bid plans" and where is the 'planroom website"? I am not trying to be mean but I have literally have no idea what you are talking about. Can you please clarify and provide a link to this website? I would love to see what you mean because I clearly missed this and took Glass' comments as a major surprise.

All the public projects up for bid from the University are posted there, occasionally with blueprints/detailed plans. That’s where I found the locker room details for basketball. They had a bid up for the video boards at the new arena, and one of the addendums had the timeline of completion for the arena. It was past September 1. All that stuff is gone now though because the bidding process has passed.
