A new track! One more great addition to the athletic facilities.

I read in the UP that the new track will only be open to athletes or NCAA competition. Also that campus rec is looking at building a 6 ti 12 million dollar work-out complex that would include an indoor track, along with a new pool.

I never understood this but we really don't have a mens track and field team only a small cross country team, wish we did though it certainly could help draw some fast guys.

There's only one reason we don't have a men's track team:

Is that because FAU added Football?

Add equestrian (mostly women in a co-ed sport) and then there will be room for a track team.

Yeah it is. Those what is it 85 scholarships for guys on the football team have to be equaled out by the scholarships the girls get. IMO it's all stupid but ohh well.

Are you referring to the Wellness Center? I'm really looking forward to this facility being completed. The planning has been done for a year:

Nice video of the ground breaking ceremony.

One point of concern though is Brogan spoke of different facilities for the basketball/volleyball and football/soccer. That would lead me to believe they might be leaning toward an open air stadium. Who knows?

Look for the video link.
