FAU Amidst Discussions on a Study for a New Baseball Stadium

Post

According to FAU Facilities "Minor Projects Status Report", there are discussions underway for a study on building a BRAND NEW baseball stadium and making renovations to The Burrow.

It is important to remember that this is just DISCUSSIONS ABOUT a STUDY, but this is the most movement we have seen regarding upgraded facilities for both basketball programs and the baseball program.

Good news and all but at this point upgrading the burrow feels like lipstick on a pig.  We need a new arena.

It was lip stick on a pig when we dumped $14 million or whatever it was nearly 10 years ago.

We are long overdue for a new arena.  Make it small and intamate.

It was lipstick on a pig but most or all of the funds came from insurance due to what ever hurricane damaged it. I don't know if the funds could have been used differently.

Dont need more than 2k seats IMO.  

We could use all of the bricks thrown up by the team the last 3-4 years to build it….

Ok that was funny.

We really do need an actual arena, nothing big but upgrading this one is a waste of money.

GO OWLS!

In my 58 years of life experience, I've discovered that renovating is OK as long as the outcome is exactly what you want. If it isn't exactly what you want , you won't be happy and you just wasted a lot of time , money, and effort. I guess that is why they are doing the study. Finding out which route is best. Walty , the brick post is priceless.

I just do not see the burrow as a dump.

It's a good foundation for what we need as an arena.  I feel like they are doing more than talking about adding a good paint job if it's added concessions, new scoreboards, fully renovated locker rooms will take it to what it needs to be.
