"I felt we made a mistake in building a baseball field. I thought that should have been the ice skating rink, because I think hockey in this state right now, not just hockey, but ice skating, if you come up to our office building at 6:00 in the morning, some mornings you can't get a parking spot because parents have taken their kids up here to skate...I think hockey will be a great addition to our intercollegiate program. [The Pegula gift] is a great, great gift. And I think very far-sighted and I'm really pleased with it." - Joe Paterno

PIA Construction: April 10, 2012

Third in a series tracking Pegula Ice Arena construction every few weeks (February 7, 2012 / March 27, 2012).

Today's installment, which comes courtesy of a generous reader, shows that yep, there's still just a giant pit at the future PIA site. Look closely though - there's order in the chaos. Before more obvious progress is made, what are just piles of dirt to the untrained eye actually serve as a rough layout of the arena's floor plan. The second picture, for example, quite clearly shows the location of the community rink through some orderly digging and a few orange cones.
