But just wondering what your game plan would be for the situation!!!
    My daddy always told me if I was just gonna half-___ something, it's better to not even do it. This would be half-assing to the extreme. This area needs to be beautified ASAP. Build the plaza as planned!

    I cannot believe T-Joe would want to keep that eyesore current athletics building, especially where it is at. It's clearly in the way of the APC and no longer fits the area. It needs to be torn down. Dr. Maggard, don't go cheap. The stadium also needs more than just a press box update.

    Totally agree: demolishing the Cox must be a priority. Even if we don't build the tower or sports plaza for a while, it has to go. It is now an eyesore and bringing down the whole complex.....when we have a fantastic complex.

    Tram is a dream. From the same mindset group that wants gondolas to Maurice. Planning is good, but that's too much weed...
    Actually, over-head trams are not as far-fetched as some would think, and are becoming a viable option in a lot of situations.

    Cox building being used for the players on the baseball team cause their old locker room has been deemed un useable due to mold issues that occurred during construction of Russo park.

    I've handled hundreds of mold infected homes including mansions due to water. Total safe remediation isn't rocket science, and while somewhat expensive isn't a fortune.

    My point, it could have been remediated before fall practice.

    I have a couple of questions:
    1. I heard the same basic thing, but no timeline was given. Did they give you one?
    2. I assume that the new dorms are in the Youth Park area. Is that what you heard too?
    3. And this may be more for Helmut, or other construction type peeps to answer, but once they get permission to demo buildings, is there a time restriction involved? I mean, before the demo of the maintenance buildings can happen, the new ones (behind the Ira Nelson center on Johnston) will have to be constructed.....and I haven't heard of that getting started yet. Don't know if they typically get permission to demo if they aren't ready to do that pretty quickly.

    I asked about the viability time wise. After the number of stops/stations REQUIRED, it's about an estimated 45 minute ride.

    Speaking of dorms, here is a great example why you want to keep politics off your campus, and from a fan's perspective, away from your sports teams.

    How about building dorms as part of the football stadium expansion? If I am not
    mistaken, Florida State built dorms into their stadium which the state paid providing partial funding for the project. Didn't LSU have dorms in Tiger Stadium? Perhaps state funding for dorms could help facilitate enhancements to the stadium while filling dormitory needs.

    Thanks. I keep hearing that there is a new engineering building coming, but don't know where it is supposed to be located, or what will become of Madison Hall once Engineering leaves???

    Or is the St Mary corridor our best bet for future expansion? There would be a few more existing structures to deal with going that route but going thay way does eventually tie us into available lands toward the athletics campus and research park.
    Took me a while, but I knew I had seen a section of the master plan that outlines our future land acquisition. It makes the assumption that we will purchase the old OLOL property......and also that money will fall from heaven to make the purchases.

    JUST A FEW QUESTIONS/COMMENTS/POINTS:
    First of all, I do NOT know the answers - and maybe they have been asked and answered already.
    If so, my apologies.
    Similarly, I am not even close to being "in the know" regarding all of the issues associated with the needed demo of the "Cox Communication Athletic Complex."
    With these qualifiers:
    1. I would presume that Cox Communication pays sponsorship fees/ naming rights to call the Athletic Complex the "Cox Communication" Athletic Complex. Is this accurate?
    2. If so, I would again presume that Cox Communication would have an interest in the image/public sentiment/style/image of a building that has their name on it.
    3. Therefore, it would certainly appear that Cox Communication would (or should) have an opinion as to how they want their brand and name portrayed on our campus.
    4. Does anyone on this board know whether Cox Communication has been contacted to address the eyesore that has their name on it, what they could do to help the situation, and whether they are willing and able to "fix" the issue?
    5. Seems like we could work with Cox Communication to have them pay for the demo AND to either pay to replace the building or build something that more respectfully and more appropriately represents their brand.
