    I drove by yesterday and there have been some changes

    The Caterpillar tractor looks like it was moved to the other end of the lot AND it looks like some weeds are breaking through the dirt that hasn’t moved since July.
    Progress I guess

            Are those the new facilities? I thought it was supposed to be one standing alone.

              This thread was started in Feb 2017 (after a top 10 recruiting class) announcing the stand alone football complex.

              Almost 4 years later and we moved some dirt around. (In the same time frame, I've moved more dirt for my garden).

                  The first thing that popped in my mind while watching that video was Prestige Worldwide. Looks like they let corch make that video with his 1980 model RCA camcorder.

                    Due to money shortfalls caused by the inability to"pack the swamp",
                    the following revised plan for the long awaited facility will soon
                    be presented by Foley to the fan base:

                    If the Corona Virus doesn't abate soon, further reductions
                    may be required.

                      They asked to build it in the track & field area, but those guys just gave them the run-around.

                              Just a reminder, Trailerbammer proposed a new 85 mil facility in fall 2019, started construction in Spring 2020 and finished it by August.

                              We started in 2015 and have a pile of dirt.

                                  If you were behind the curve on facilities and interest rates were at all-time lows, you’d think you would want to adopt the Auburn mentality. Issue bonds. Go for it and get it done. Time’s a wasting.

                                  Not us. We’re stuck in a pay-with-cash mindset that is gradually becoming our own self-fulfilling prophecy. We’ve seen the enemy and the enemy is us.

                                    Shouldnt we build a $50 million softball stadium instead? We can put it next to the baseball stadium.

                                      It looks like something you would envision the Brady dad building back in the day.

                                        They can't be serious. That might be the ugliest rendering I've seen in ages. My uncle, God rest his soul, was an architect and developer. He designed things like that in the sixties. He regretted those buildings to his dying day. The "ghost" football players are the ones who won't sign up because they can't stand the way the building looks.

                                                Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
