This is where Bluejay Basketball started...it is the hallmark of Creighton Sports, the university's growth, and (should be) is a cherished icon. The triad (Admin, St John's Church, and the Old Gym - along with the Jesuit Gardens and Observatory) are Creighton history and IMO "untouchable". They are landmarks and reside far above any new construction. They should be exempt from new fangled notions of renovation or destruction, unlike Creighton Stadium which fell to make way for the Rigge parking lot (ands a couple of bldgs) or Beal's Grill (parking lot).
In some ways yes, we have come a long way, but in other ways it was only yesterday. Hoops is 100 yrs old, Let us hope that current day modernism and revisionism doesn't destroy ALL of our links to our past. We don't want to relive it, but we all fare better when we are able to reach back and "touch the stones", revisit and recharge our batteries at significant places along our journey. Creighton, for us, is such a recharging station - our Jordan River - as we owe much of our character, successes, and principles to the learning we gained on the Hilltop.
Luv ya Creighton University...but let's keep our perspective, good judgement, and common sense (which i'm told isn't so common).
