Default Stadium Parking - Proving Grounds

I suggested earlier that we make that parking since the new facility and practice fields is going take up a lot of our parking area. Someone said we lease it from the National Guard and we will stop leasing it. That is a dumb idea. That land is right across from the stadium. We should buy that property from the NG, they don't need it for anything. Any time we have a chance to get property near our stadium we need to jump on that.

My understanding is the NG wants to use that land, and doesn't want to sell it or extend a lease

probably. All of a sudden they want it now? They have a price I am sure. Parking is a premium now. Perhaps they want to put their own parking lot their and charge $800 a spot.

This. We wouldn't be building new practice fields if they would extend the lease or sell the land.

WHAT?! That's ridiculous. We've needed that new practice facility for years. It's been seriously holding back our recruiting. There is no way Spurrier was going to retire with the same old facilities.

We've needed a bigger indoor practice facility with a 100 yard field for a few years but I think the practice fields themselves were fine.

I assure you that they were not holding us back in recruiting at least. Lack of a new indoor practice facility? Maybe. But the outdoor practice fields definitely were not.

Now that I think about it I'm pretty sure they were redone around 2007

If you are going to have a brand spanking new indoor facility your going to put the practice fields next to it. Instead of having everyone trudge five blocks to go from one to the other.

I thought the National Guard already refused a offer to buy that property.

Um...... If the National Guard says that we cant have it, it might be a wise idea to do what they say....
