    Re: Nothing new here....A&M has little man syndrome



    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Puke.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    And yet we would kill for a facility like that.

    There's plenty to talk about the aggies, how damn weird some of their traditions are, but that stadium plan is something just about any school would love to have.

    Yeah, they are a little full of themselves but that is impressive as crap. The fact that they have 31K students for ever game is awesome. We used to have less total fans than that at each game.

    No...it's ridiculous overkill and there really should be no place for it in college athletics.

    It does kind of point out that there is too much money in the system right now when they can afford a remodel on that scale.

    There's always a place for that in college athletics if someone wants to write the check.

    Their concession stands will serve beverages in mason jars.

    Exactly. Its not like theyre the only ones doing these huge projects either. Minnesota and its 325mil (2013 dollars), stadium, Baylor and its $250mil one etc. Everyone seems to be doing some project or another, though many times its more piecemeal\phases like what we've done with our stadium or what KSU is doing with theirs as opposed to one big project.

    I mean, even we've done a good amount of renovations when you add everything up, the training facility, the scoreboard, the suites, the concourse\restroom\concessions improvements, etc.

    1. Isn't this old news? Feel like I watched this months ago.
    2. Not sure what is idiotic about it.

    Re: Nothing new here....A&M has little man syndrome

    We can't even afford an SEZ and Minnesota is doing a 325 million renovation for a team that can't even compete?


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Not doing, but they did their new stadium just a couple years ago.

    The benefit of only having one major school in a state that everyone can support.
