A price break on the Pauley Pavilion renovation
Today, the university announced that the project is now expected to come in almost $50 million under initial estimates, dropping the price tag to $136 million.
But the bad times aren't all good; the athletic department has stalled around the $65-million mark in its effort to raise $100 million.
With a groundbreaking ceremony scheduled for Tuesday, Athletic Director Dan Guerrero said "we anticipate that we will see a wave of loyal Bruins" joining the more than 600 supporters who have already donated.
