I still can't believe "they" are going to have an on-campus stadium before FAU.  How many games did FIU win the past two seasons?  I think the powers to be at FAU really need to look at themselves in the mirror on September 20th.

Ha! Ours are cheaper!!!! $75 for 4 x 8 and $125 for 8 x 8. They are selling their 4 x 8 for $125 and not giving the option of another size!!!

MOMENT TO DO A SALES PITCH:
Florida Atlantic University Foundation, Inc.

Can't afford to put your name on the stadium in bright lights? Then put your name on the proposed sidewalk leading into the stadium. It's affordable!!!!!!

Everyone always wants people to step up and donate money to the stadium. This board talks about Boca officials not wanting the stadium built. Then let's do something about it and donate $75 or $125 a person to not only show them we are GIVING MONEY to the project but we WANT the project to happen.

Possible dumb question: Was FAU the first university to push the brick promotion or were we just one in a line of universities that have done this? Because if this idea began with Smitty, they completely ripped off his idea.

They did it at the zoo back home when I was like 6.  It's pretty common way of raising funds.

Universities have done brick campaigns before. However, I think we are unique in the sense that this is a STUDENT-LED, STUDENT-MANAGED brick campaign. Many campaigns, like FIU or even the University of Alabama, have done these types of campaigns before but they were handled by the "professionals." While the FAU brick campaign has "professional" oversight, students are selling the bricks, promoting the bricks and signing the "thank you" cards that alumni get in the mail. This was also organized by students and Paul Metcalf with some help from athletics.

So in that sense, we are unique.

Fair enough. Speaking of zoos, they spruced up the Dreher Park Zoo… jumping fountains, themed areas.. they even have replica Mayan temples there.

They've had an on campus stadium from day 1.  They just have a nicer one now.
