    I'll have an even harder time remembering the Mac the first time a lite rain starts to fall at the new place.

    There was nowhere to hide . Dugouts were hotter than hell and coach Fuller sat at one end of the dugout. Nobody wanted to catch his wrath by sitting near him. He would chew your ass even if it wasn’t your fault.. I loved that man !!

    Why do that when everyone can go stand in the middle of the track complex and watch the lightning flashes? HA
    I hope they plan on installing some overhead fans where all the people should go for a storm.

    Maybe for Bull Gators, but not for the rest of us. The Indoor Practice Facility is holy ground and not for the masses.

    What do you think the average attendance increase will be in the new venue?

    With more amenities.
    Shade.
    Family oriented sections.
    360-degree concourse- won’t miss any action.
    But farther away from dorms/frats, etc.

    Not having a problem parking with concurrent O'Dome events (gymnastics, high school graduations, Dance Marathon, etc.) will be a big plus.

    With a covered parking lot, set up tables/chairs, fans, and ice available for weather delays I think we can pack it out—they just need to think it out before final construction starts—:)

    I'm wondering if we may not see crowds any bigger than the 6,000 we get at the Mac but the lower attended games on Sunday afternoon and higher rain chance days might bring out more fans that would otherwise stay home.

    Dorms and Frats really don’t attend much at least on a large scale. They could really have Dorm or Frat nites and do some special things. Might increase student participation. We have to get the students going to make this atmosphere exciting. Old farts like us cannot do that. Got to be more than Section E.

    It have to admit I missed a few Sunday afternoon games when it was sunny and hot.

    Because we all get rich from the lawsuit and can now afford to be Bull Gators? UF UAA having a shelter nearby and refusing to offer it would be a really good side to take in court. Arguing that the O'Connell Center parking garage would have also worked as a shelter does not work because officially there is a no re-entry policy.

    Well no commitment but at least a response, it would not hurt if others would add more nudges as time goes by... I expect to run into hm soon enough at volleyball and WBK and will remind him again, can't hurt

    Dear John,
    Thanks for reaching out. We appreciate your input.
    I will be sure to share this with all of the appropriate parties involved in the design of the new Ballpark to make sure it is considered and not overlooked.
    Have a great weekend!
    Go Gators!
    Scott
