I think the west building location for rec sports + student union facilities is just about a perfect location for that stuff (short of bulldozing LaFortune and rebuilding there or repurposing something else).

Think about it: it's adjacent to the two most heavily-trafficked classroom buildings, right outside Debartolo, right next to O'Shag, also near the law school, Mendoza, Cushing, south quad, etc. This isn't redefining the center of campus at all. If anything it's bringing it in tighter.

Right now the rec sports are way the hell on the east edge of campus. This brings them closer to the center of campus. Right now I wonder how many kids from the west quad even know about Rolfs Rec center.

It also frees up the Rolfs rec center for hoops. A great win-win from that perspective.

Edit: I mean, this is what we're talking about.
