    It's really hard to believe this, but as poverty stricken as Clown Town athletics are, they are going to have their standalone before us, and nicer too.

    ****
    Florida State is closing in on the $100 million goal for the Unconquered Campaign.

    FSU Athletic Director David Coburn announced at Thursday's Committee for Student Affairs board meeting that the campaign has already raised more than $70 million towards the goal.

    The campaign was announced on Sept. 2 with the goal of raising $100 million over the next five years for new athletic facilities.

    Specifically among those facilities was a new $60 million stand-alone football facility that is set to open in 2021, upgrades to Dick Howser Stadium, the Tucker Civic Center, the DeVoe L. Moore Athletic Center, and the redesigning of the Don Veller Seminole Golf Course.

    The late Al Dunlap and his wife Judy donated $20 million to the campaign in October. FSU football coach WiLLLLLLLie Taggart made a $1 million donation the day the campaign was announced.

    Oh, what sad times are these when passing ruffians can build stand alone facilities before we can. There is a pestilence upon this land, nothing is sacred.

      You got a like simply for using the phrase "passing ruffians."

      Can’t take credit for that phrase. At this point, all I can do is laugh.

      Not necessarily. While the Dick Veller Golf Course is being redesigned now the other projects are on hold for the time being. I spoke to the architect on the football facility the other day and he said to his knowledge the AD cancelled the project. As for the others I have no clue as I was told all athletic projects no matter how small are on hold for the foreseeable future.

        Have you considered the possibility they have discovered you are secretly working for GCMB and are therefore feeding you disinformation? As always, should you or any member of your force be caught or killed, Ox will disavow any knowledge of your actions.

        I took my oath seriously when signing on here. I have not given away my allegiance except to the few Bama fans that work there in a joint effort to destroy from within. On a side note most the colleges are going to have a tough year as they got shortchanged by the legislature on their money. Not that it affects athletic projects the same way, but its something I'm seeing on most campuses the last month after they had to push projects back another year. The athletic department is another animal. It was explained to me that this guy came in and squashed everything. The architect is in Missouri and designs these things for schools across the country so not sure why he would give misinformation.

          I just thought it was a nice opportunity to do the Mission Impossible thing - poor attempt at humor. As for FSU, I've seen other reporting that everything is on hold at the moment.

          I’m just going by what I was told earlier in the week by people that work on the projects there. They could be blowing smoke but the architect is the one I trust the most as he has no dog in the fight unless they are trying to find someone cheaper than the guys who’s designed half of the ones out there.

            Lol. It’s not in our system under him and not in my territory so I can’t see everything. That may truly mean we are worse off.

              You will be whining over the next 3-5 as these crappy classes echo in our win loss record.

              Actually you will probably be making excuses and telling us we should accept the new norm

                Joiner murder arrest is only going to piss off the football haters in AD office that much more.
