FAU Stadium gets first OK, final is Thursday

Live – FAU Stadium gets first OK, final is Thursday
By Ted Hutton September 15, 2010 03:27 PM

BOG Facilities Committee gives the stadium the OK.

Unanimous.

Now it moves on to full board, with final OK expected around noon.

It was a freakin' Love Fest…

There were a couple questions – is stadium just for football? Is there enough parking? Are you sure this is where you want to spend your money with a medical school coming? Can it be expanded?

Answers: Financing is coming from these facilities and won't impact med school; plenty of on-campus parking is available; there are other uses built into facility; yes it can be expanded.

FAU BOT prez Nancy Blosser gave a speech, and says plan is "safe and sound."

"The stadium that will seal its future as university of first choice."

She also tosses in name of Howard Schnellenberger.

Former FAU trustee Norm Tripp gives his support.

Stay tuned around noon Thursday.

There will be a Watch Party in the Founders Lounge at The Oxley.

So excited. I remember putting my FAU football sticker on my truck as a sophomore in 2000. Now a stadium. Awesome. Not to jinx anything yet.
