    I'm sure it will take some time to raise that kind of money for the upper deck rebuild. I don't know where they hope to get that money from. If we get started on the upper deck next year I'm changing my Scott Farmer vote to an 11.

    What is the construction schedule to the upper level of Cajun Field?

    Also, has the plans for the Tigue Moore field renovations been made yet and put on the schedule?


    Thanks,

    My memory, and it is not worth watching again, is everything was pretty much set except what to do with the upper deck, remodel vs rebuild.

    I would vote to rebuild because:

    A: it is structurally damaged from water flowing into the steel in the concrete super structure, just watch the rain leak into the stadium on any rainy game.
    B: improved concepts in seating and suites since the year 1972
    C: will be able to sell more suites.
    D: will have better TV shots.

    I think it was said earlier that they plan on starting the Athletic Performance Center right after the end zone work is completed and is expected to be finished by the summer of 2015.

    Maybe if T-joe got off of his SSS, stopped being scared of ruffling a few feathers and hired a dedicated fund raising guru, we wouldn't be worrying so much. If phase 2 does not go off as scheduled, it will fall at the feet of 1 person.

    But Z, we (along with hundreds of other universities, hospitals, charitable organizations, etc.) have Pursuant! I am sure they have their top summer intern devoting tens of hours over the summer working on our fundraising job. I'm sure a new PowerPoint presentation is on the horizon (school starts back up for the interns in late August).
