    New Football Facility

    Is everything suppose to be done with the building and tunnel by the time of the first game?

    I haven't seen any pictures of it lately and didn't know how it was progressing along.

    I think the original plans were mid-season.

    This is what I remember hearing. I just know for sure that I remember seeing here that it wouldn't be ready for the first game for sure.

    That kinda sucks.... It would have been nice to have it ready for Tulsa.

    New season, new tunnel, new building...

    Still cool that we will have it though.

    I agree, the current team entrance will just seem like a filler. Not a big deal though, can't wait to see how it turns out

    I hope they get way ahead of schedule and finish early. Although, I'd imagine they are probably a little behind schedule.

    Re: New Football Facility

    Know a guy working electrical on the project and he has said they were behind schedule when they started...i thought he said their target date was mid-late September but didn't sound overly confident they would hit it...

    Rules of construction:

    1. All contractors will blame sub-contractors for delays

    2. All sub-contractors will blame the other sub-contractors for delays

    As a vendor, we get plenty of the blame from the subs and the general even though it is their late orders that inevitably causes the delay in the first place.

    Contractors blaming others doesn't just apply to construction......

    I'm surprised at how fast it's going up, in all seriousness.
