    Honestly, I don't give a shit what the city does with it once we're done there. They've made it abundantly clear they're not interested in working or helping State despite it being one of their largest employers and economic drivers. With their financial issues, I doubt they're in any position to assist in demo costs, either.

    I like the Elon idea. I think the new college president could be behind this concept. Something on the river campus could be beautiful. Most likely, it would have to be on hold, at least, until Hulman is either completed or well on it way

    I know the school and the city don't get it, but what is good for one is good for the other. I'm sure demolishing those stands won't be cheap.

    It could also be a sweet local soccer/football field for kids.

    First practice on the new turf will be either Saturday (scrimmage) or Tuesday. Weather has killed the timeline, but they knew this was a possibility. Worth it in coach’s eyes. And after all the lower body injuries last year, I would agree with him.
