    Restaurant/bar, retail store, etc.

    Easy money for the athletic department. Winning!

    Absolutely shocked that you would post that. Further showing everyone why I refer to you as a "know your place" fan.

    Publicly run? What does that even mean?

    Put a Walkons in right field party deck area. You telling me that is going to fail?

    Having a nice club area adds other benefits. Schools like Georgia Tech and others use their stadium clubs to host prospective students on their visits. Really is a way to showcase the school in a classy setting.

    Why would walk ons do that for 6 days a year? Why would they not build their own place across the street and kill it 365? Why cut the university in? It's not practical. Anything that would be in the stadium would be ran by the university...and probably underwhelming if not a total ___ show

    The point is that it doesn't have to be a certain chain or IN the stadium. The point is that as long as we have the opportunity to build a brick and mortar inside of the athletic property, that's easy money that can increase the athletic budget. It can be a lemonade stand for all I care. At the end of the day, we have opportunities to use our land more efficiently than we do now.

    I can envision a "main Street" of sorts on the North end zone side of the stadium with bars and restaurants that can be open year round. Have student housing apartments above the retail. Imagine, as a student, having a balcony apartment there on game day. Would be bad ___

    I take him to mean "publicly run" as a business literally ran by government entity...guaranteed to have more money going out the door than coming in in that scenario...

    It's still possible to be succsssful if it's done right. Personally, I would prefer a private company coming in and opening a business; but whatever it takes to generate $$$$ for the athletic department would make me happy.

    That's exactly what is called for in the Master Plan. Except I don't think it will be students living there. More like younger adults, and maybe retired folks. I have zero doubt that this will happen, and sooner rather than later.

    Who said anything about 6 days a year? Having a hard time understanding your view point on this one.

    You put franchises in and around the complex. Franchisees run the show. Just like every where else that a store opens.

    Regardless of what happens in this discussion, It's happening. There will be restaurants and retail on athletic complex property.

    He has crapped on every idea that has been thrown out the past couple of days. Should change his name to crappycajun if he plans to continue in this light.

    The problem is not specific to CC.
    We've been inundated with small time thinkers, people who love the word "can't", people who'd rather talk about being Big Time than actually execute a plan and old guard who are infatuated with the idea of doing "more with less".

    All of that is over, whether they like it or not.

    My comment to Metry earlier is case in point. The people that don't have the guts to dream big love to laugh at those of us that do. But I'd love to see Metry go tell Bryan Maggard he's a clown for wanting Big 12 membership.

    I want a 24/7/365 Coffee shop.

    I have heard comment from several coaches (asst coaches) from several sports and they just love Maggard and his group. The common thread is that "can't" is no longer in the AD's vocabulary, the vision is always a "yes, we will make it happen vision" and any well thought out request is now being met (little or large) with the understanding that results are important. WOW how things have changed.

    I wouldn't say "long over" it still feels new to me.

    I will say the new vibe was long overdue.
