  1. 15 million would cover a decent bit of renovation costs, one might think. Ah, well.

The arena still needs repairs and upgrades, but that was not addressed. Legitimate college hockey prospects are not going to return calls from Bowling Green.

  4. Yes, if BG had pulled out, it would have been up to Ferris State or Lake Superior to fill that role.
