    they were all over espn during the regional saying it was going to 17 and they were ready to go as soon as the supers were over. Now Jay makes it sound like they were surprised by the new cost and that's what is causing this 3+ week delay. Something smells fishy.

    So if it's not ready by the beginning of the season, what does that mean? Like will we be playing games at the Tigue?

    I do not know why this isn't started either. I just think it makes too much sense.

    I must preface this with I have never run a fundraiser and there may be a precedent that you run a "silent phase" first to gather as much of the funding as possible, but I don't see why they can't run concurrently.

    So, semamtics or whatever excuse is being used aside, is it my understanding that the actual cost of the stadium went up by $7M since Farmer last checked?? Is that what we're supposed to believe? That's some crazy inflation!

    I'm so confused. Wake me up in August or better yet, 2018. I can't handle the truth OR the fiction.

    Edit: Wake me up if we make the CWS, Final 4, or the Sugar Bowl next year.

    I've never run one either so I could be completely off base. But think, construction was supposed to start 2 weeks ago?? That means they had ONLY a silent phase. That's it.

    No one who has an opinion differing from Jay's would be allowed on air, anyway; and if they were he would shout them down. Have you never listened to his show?

    We are faceless buffoons, no one cares what we think. We are small potatoes. We ain't small enough for that bald-headed ____ to stop reading what we are saying. A bully pulpit is an easy medium to demean and belittle what you want silenced.

    Johnny Moon is full of crap. He's giving spotty information. They had 70% pledged of the 10 million dollar price tag. Well, the stadium is going to cost more now. Whether it's 13, 14 or 18 million where is that money going to be financed? Where was the 3 million going to be financed when the price tag was 10 million?

    Is it true that T-Joe has walked into multiple banks in the last ten days trying to get financing? If so, why wasnt this legwork done a year or six months ago?

    Birdpoop better hope every brick of that stadium is built with cajun fannies sitting in the seats next spring or he should go ahead and retire.

    Birdpoop knew there was a problem two weeks ago which is why he picked up his ball and went home. Why Turbine deleted posts associated with his thin skinned retorts is beyond me. He's no friend of this forum and it only contributes to the wishes of "cajun elites" (if there is such a thing) who prefer that all negative news regarding UL be swept under the rug and kept quiet. That's why BirdPoop hit the road and got into a tizzy about Turbine deleting his account from this sites history, he's embarrassed because he's part of the problem.

    And we had to float a loan. Of course there was to be a TWO WEEK delay after the end of the Regionals and or Super Regionals. Since we did not reach the Super Regionals and if all were ready to go, financing in hand, NTP in Lemoine hands this project would have started a few days after the regional.....AROUND 3 DAMN WEEKS AGO! But what do I know, I'm a faceless buffoon.

    And the cost rose to 17 million because of our decisions not Lemoine

    I actually thought they had made a mistake when I watched the replay of the game and heard them reference $17M cost. At all the meeting I had attended we were at $11M.

    I know everyone is mad at Jay and hates Scott. I just would like for them to tell us what happens to the season ticket holders. I know we have more STH than Fabacher's capacity.
