Just as long as they leave us some room on campus to tailgate. I hate setting up camp away from stadiums before games.

indoor football is just as good as outdoor it just showcases a players skill more inside because there are no outside influences like weather
I disagree, I think the atmosphere of out doors is better. Indoors feels to much like arena football. Also there will never be a snow bowl in boca, and now there will never be a mud bowl :( sports were made to be played outdoors…

I can see the dome stadium as a good thing for the university as a multi purpose building, but will agree with most an outdoor stadium would be a the preferred choice.

They built the temp stadium, we built the Oxel center.

we need something to set us apart from the big three. we don't want to be another 1A team we want to be the 1A team….. we need to make a name for ourselves, we have no tradition….. we need something that the 300lb linebacker in texas or the qb in tally remembers their trip here. the dome is smart way to go. kids will remember the dome and the that's were it begins.

from my experience working with pro athletes, i can tell you that most prefer to play outdoors. even with the new indoor playing surfaces, more injuries tend to occur indoors. in my opinion the dome is a waste of funds, and limits growth potential. but i am all for having an on-campus stadium, so whatever it takes. plus, with the speed of florida athletes, maybe fau will be known one day as the grestest show on turf!

We can all agree that domes/turf is not the first choice of most football players. We can also agree that it's not the preferred choice of most posters on this board.
We have to also realize that it's economically driven.
Incorporating other sports into the plans and take advantage of scheduling multi-events indoors.
Cha Ching!

Big payoff? Elimination of Mallox moments for coach Schnell when we lose practices to inclement weather during the spring and fall.. :D

Thats a very good point.

It is a great recruiting tool. My problem isn't necessarily with the turf. The new field turf is very forgiving and is a drastic change from the old stuff. It drains better than real turf and needs virtually no maintanence. After the initial cost it is a great investment.

I understand the economic reasons for the dome. I just prefer the outdoor experience. Like BC said, a dome provides an arena football atmosphere.

I much prefer the outdoor experience as well, but with the scarcity of land on campus, a multi-use facility is necessary. I have never been to Syracuse's Dome, but the O-Dome (O'Connell Center) at UF was impressive with basketball, gymnastics, swimming and diving, and workout facilities that all the students could use (including a track to run on in the second concourse when the seats were moved back).
The outdoor experience is great, but I believe the dome is required and should be a great recruiting tool (just imagine how loud that place could get)!!
