    GME is not up because of its fundamentals. It is artificially inflated because of people playing games (lol) with the stock. In that regard, it is much like fsu. Well, except fsu isn't up.

    I would like to hear USF chime in about the tax payers buying them a stadium, and UCF, FAU, FIU, etc, show up with bells and whistles demanding payment for improving their stadiums, before another penny is pissed away on the nole's stadium.

    They're. Just. Another. School.

    Make them carry their own damn weight, or treat the other schools the same.

    (We can take take our 'fair share', and put it towards training facilities---and let's get our share back dated to the first damn splurge--again, BEFORE another penny is allocated to the Clown Tent).

    I don't understand why UF and all the other Florida schools aren't entitled to the same taxpayer money. Why is it only FSU?

    FTR the current (emphasis here) plan is a local county project. No state funds are being discussed yet. Im sure they’ll find a way to finagle it after they start at which time I will be righteously pissed.

    I all my years of watching college football, 1982 in Doak is the only time I know of that the visiting team fans stormed the field. It was glorius. Proud to be an unarrested participant.

    Go Gators!

    Instead, they need to refurbish their football program. Or turn the stadium into a giant circus tent. Lions, tigers and Gators...oh my.

    The $20mil to “refurbish” the Joke is from the county sales tax fund. The 1 cent increase was not intended for this use, as always it was advertised/sold to the local residents as something completely different. They should be outraged it’s instead going to be funneled to Clown U.

    FSU football stadium renovations get green light for sales tax funding

    I was in a group that was on its way to go get the other one when we saw the cops coming. I had already graduated and had more to lose than than a night in TPD lockup, so I got the hell out of there. I do remember dancing with a girl later on the pool table at the Phyrst.

    You are correct, that was a glorious night. Bob Hewko coming off the bench to get us the W!

    “Imagine FSU not being able to have games in town,” said incoming Tallahassee Chamber of Commerce chair and Prime Meridian Bank CEO Sammie Dixon.

    What a crock of crap.

    Is this for a new fire suppression system to put out the raging dumpster fire that is FSU football?

    First, Gator fans made fun for years about “The World’s Largest Erector Set”.

    Then, when FSU fixed the problem by putting up a building around it, Gator fans alledge FSU did something wrong with taxpayer money. How would you have handled the situation?

    I think what FSU did was brilliant.

    BHG stadium looks great on the alumni side and on the north side, but the student side and the south side are nothing to write home about.

    Come on Gator fans, you’re better than that!

    Older Gators won’t be surprised as this isn’t the first time those of the Nolish persuasion have dipped into the public till to supplement their meager finances.

    Many years ago when they controlled the legislature, they misappropriated $37 million of PECO funds designed for educational purposes went to finance their stadium expansion.

    Never underestimate the skullduggery the Tallywhackers will stoop to. After all, Nole is a 4-Letter word!
