OU Athletics have a "Bobcat Renaissance" vision
(2008-07-03)
(WOUB) - The Ohio University Athletics Department is asking more people in Southeastern Ohio to support the Bobcats because that can benefit the region economically.

Athletic Director Jim Schaus says it doesn't matter where you went to school or if you root for other teams as long as the Bobcats are one of your teams.

Schaus says members of the Ohio athletic department will have an increased presence in the region in the upcoming months to help stir up support for Bobcat athletics.

He's asking that people do whatever they can to help the Bobcats because theirs efforts will also help Southeastern Ohio.

Schaus spoke at a press conference yesterday, announcing an overall long-term vision for Ohio Athletics called "Bobcat Renaissance".

The vision calls for a renewed emphasis on fund raising to deal with a departmental budget deficit, a five-year strategic plan and improving athletic facilities, such as building a new indoor practice facility for football and other sports.
