    So I mentioned to one of our project managers (not for the UAA) that there are rumors that a new infirmary will share the vacant baseball site and added it will probably be built first. He seemed a bit defensive and said no way they are already building the new operation center to maintain the new stand alone, so I dropped it. The next time I was over that way I drove by and sure enough they have built a state of the art building on the site where Fooley and butters proposed the stand alone.
    That's right folks the painters and grass cutters are getting a new facility before the football team. There's no end to the incompetence of the UAA.

      Sticklin was asked about an earlier start and he said something along the lines of: the current baseball offices, equipment, etc are housed in the old stadium so until they are able to move into the new stadium they won't tear down McKethan. It's complete incompetence. Right now they are telling recruits the new standalone will be done by December 2021. I'm sure the odds of that happening are probably less than 50%.

        Until I see that baseball park torn down, I'm going to guess no earlier than spring of 22....and that's being generous.

          With all Spring/Summer Sports cancelled they should have been using this time to play catch up on facilities... but let me guess if that happened. They really could have been getting some work in with limited students and facility on campus, and no athletes in the buildings.

            Youre talking about the school that is three months into this before we realized everyone else is still recruiting.

              I'm quite aware... they have no problem having employees read message boards, instead of having those resources focused on the future.

                Maybe the recruiters and construction team were furloughed

                  Man you guys are tough. I feel we have been greatly upgrading our virtual tour capabilities by getting a lot of new equipment to give potential recruits nothing but a real experience. Her are some of the new items to help in those tours.

                      Months! I thought it was a fake twitter account, maybe a UGA fan trying to prank us!

                          And with nothing to watch...How will they pay for this?

                          And when they all start kneeling, demanding to get paid, and stop singing the National Anthem...Who's going to care?

                          And when People turn Pro-Sports off...they'll have nowhere to play after they graduate in African - Socialism - Studies...with a BS in A.S.S

                            Perhaps I am too conservative in finances, but with the virus being a factor all schools income is going down, I don't want the athletic department to be bankrupt. And if you are coming to UF just to have the best facilities you really don't want to be a Gator in my opinion.

                              We know you want our facilities to look like Lebanon and are quite happy with losing.

                              Most of the rest of us don't want to be the Florida Marlins of the SEC.

                                It ain't gunna matter if Captain Cornell does not open the school fully. And if they start playing two National Anthems and kneeling during the Star Spangled Banner...I'll stop watching.
