Star Telegram Article - 2 Donors

owlcountry said

From the Star Telegram in an article about stadium activity in the SBC:

Florida Atlantic expects answers from two potential naming-rights sponsors by summer’s end, one for $30 million and another for $12 million. If both deliver, FAU will open a 30,000-seat stadium in 2010, coach Howard Schnellenberger said.

“We’re 85 percent on it coming out positively for us,” he said.

Not one but two possibilities.

Had to put this in its own thread due to its newsworthiness..might have been missed in the other thread

I emailed the writer and he said this info comes directly from HS.  For what its worth.

I'm much more confident than I was a month ago after getting that quote. To know there are two prospects makes it all the more likely.

Just got a text from a friend that works at the Boca Merriot and is in charge of even planning.  They said that they just booked one of the 2 finalists rooms and that they will be in town next week to pick the construction company to start asap……

Looks like it is going to happen boys (and girls)!!!

Im REALLY hoping this is a done deal as it sounds, but boy I do not want to get my hopes up to much. Id rater have FAU and HS Underpromise and Overdeliver. And if all of this IS the underpromise, then its gonna be a HELL of a overdeliver!

We need this desperately, Everything else is in place, but the stadium is the key to the castle so to speak in terms of growth and development of this program.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Awesome!

Each of the presenters noted it would take 23 months to complete the project… that's one month shy of two years. It's July 2008, meaning next month is August 2008, meaning they'd have to start building it this month in order to finish it for August 2010…

or is the 23 for the whole Innovation Village project and 18 months is all you need for the stadium?
