It is a good show, hope more people call in with questions/comments. That's the only way they know we are listening. Although it sounds like they are having some tech issues with the phones. Gonna try to get down there in two weeks (next broadcast). I tell ya, I love Coach, he's all heart.

Yeah, a huge plug for the shovel movement, sounds like he loves the idea. He also mention something about the stadium expecting it to be formally approved in a few weeks (BOT meeting)…he sounded extremely optimistic, almost fact like.

A picture before the Pep Rally, just so those who couldn't be there can get some sort of sense of what it was like (sorry it's blurry… tried three times to no avail)



During the actual Pep Rally, Coyote Jacks filled to the brim, with many many people without seats. The band, dance team, cheerleaders gave incredible performances. They played the fight song and tried to incite cheers but people were mostly silent. FAU students were there but few wanted to put effort into actually doing the cheers. It was pretty depressing. After several rounds of not getting much reaction, SGA VP Abe Cohen took the stage to say a few words and was very vocal about getting their attention and supporting the program. He did a fantastic job. Rusty Smith took the stage and said a few words along the lines of "Yeah, we're going to kick ass this season so come see it" that drew a pretty decent reaction.

And of course the Dance Team was… stunning.

I was there and it was hard to make out some of what was being said because Coach mumbles a bit, the sound was rather low, and people were talking.

However, he did mention somethiing to the effect that "I heard some people out there have started a movement with Blue Shovels and how fantastic would it be if people were to come out to the game and support us by buying a $2, $3, $5 shovel and help us get a stadium on-campus!"

He also autographed a blue shovel held by a fan… perhaps somebody on here?

Anyway, talk did veer toward the stadium and Coach said that as he understands it, the BOT will meet in two/three weeks and "approve… a very very high probability" that they will approve an on-campus stadium for 2010. "It's really necessary for the growth of our program and to be here on campus instead of driving way down to Lockhart. It's also necessary for our alumni so they have a place to come back to because Lockhart is not exactly the place that people will have fond memories of and want to return to. It also helps with recruiting to build a program to be proud of."

I met up with him later, my first time, and I told him that I'm very much looking forward to an on-campus stadium and I hope the BOT will approve it. "They'll have to", he said. "We're not going to have anywhere to play."

From talking to some people tonight I am getting the feeling like we might be leaning towards doing exactly what UCF is doing, pretty much to the T. Although the stadium may not be the same quality as our proposed permanent stadium, it does allow us to build and have it ready for when Lockhart goes down.

I'm all for it, personally, if it goes that way. I guess we'll know by the middle of September.

It would be nice if it came with a new Arena as well but a "Convocation Center" (which is what the Arena would be) is on the Five-Year Capital Improvement Plan here:

Item 20, under PECO projects
By 2010
Convocation Center/Arena
250,000 square feet
approximately $41,600,000

…so I'm not sure what that means, if that was approved or not. I thought they said the Arena would be $60 million?
