Work on year & a half DakotaDome project starts Feb. 18 ... 4K seats will be installed on the west side, with football locker room, coaches, lounge, etc ... will affect many sports (no indoor track meets this year) ... leased a space along Highway 50 for storage/training

Decision was made to play all 6 FB home games in 2019 in the Dome ... no access to the west side (students/band) ... they'll move to the permanent seating side ... 5,500 seats on the east side (~20% will be students/band) ... when project is done, Dome could seat ~9,500

Herbster was asked about Summit League expansion .... league has not had any conversations with Augustana & it hasn't applied to the league Grand Canyon had some interest, but SL decided not to go in that direction. Had been convos about UMKC, but no current ongoing convos

About Augustana -- "I do like the fact that they're thinking big. Like I've told people, going Division I is not an athletic move, it's an institutional move ... It's got to be right for the entire campus, not just for the basketball team or the football team."
