Default Old practice fields?

When we get our new indoor facility & outdoor fields completed. What do they plan to do with the old practice fields?

How about a new football operations center like what Oregon & Bama have?
That land belongs to the National Guard.. they have been letting Carolina
use it for some time now... They have asked for it back starting after
the 2014 season from what I understand. I think that's the reason for the
2015 unveiling of the Indoor facility... Even if the indoor part isn't finished
on time, they should have the outside fields done so that we'll have our
own land to practice on.

That is correct.

The planning of the new practice facilities started in 2010 actually. They were suppose to be proposed and finished in 2012. However the process got delayed by other upgrades (Rice, Dodie, Players Lounge, etc.).

The National Guard had originally asked for the land back in 2012. However they decided to let us keep it for 2 more years. This time they're serious about wanting it back by 2015.

There is no worry because we weren't planning on staying there anyway, we had plans long before the deadline to move. It's about time too, that field is terrible. There is no drainage on the field, and underneath all that grass is concrete foundation. The grass doesn't grow well, and we had been needing new fields for a while now. It's time they started the process of moving. I'm interested to see what the National Guard does with that plot of land though.

Could the National Guard technically build a parking lot and sell season parking tickets? I don't know if that would be illegal or not but if they made that a mini parking/tailgating lot they could raise a lot of money. 100 cars (more than probably could park there ) and if they sold spots for 150 a piece that's at the very least $90,000 a year.

Won't happen, but it'd be nice if USC could buy that land from the
National Guard and expand the farmer's market area.

I'd think they would cough up the money to buy the fairgrounds before they did that...force the fairgrounds to move somewhere else.

What about the SCEtv building? Ate both buildings being torn down? If so that's a good amount if parking there.

Not sure how feelings are about that now, but at one point we were
basically a signature on a contract away from finalizing a deal to buy
the SCETV building. USC was going to use it for Athletic offices and
coaches offices, but something happened and the owners backed out
at the last minute, and there was some bad feelings between the school
and the owners over that.

They will put the trees in The State Museum...they will pave the rest and put up a parking lot.

So many things could be done with such a small plot of land.

I think it'll go, that they didn't know what they had 'til it's gone.
