    I'm just concerned that by accepting a gift from our greatest enemy, they'll force us to do something in return.

    Kinda sad to see the old Mac go, even though what is being built in its place looks pretty swank.

    I've seen it from the road. It looks nice, but there is one thing I just don't understand about the design. The awnings they have installed on the upper deck do not extend all the way out over the 2nd level of seating? Early games will still leave those high $$ seats on the left field line sweltering in the sun.

    The high dollar seats will be the ones not in the sun. Small stadium, shade is more important

    Yeah, I thought that was bad too. I have no idea why they would do that other than to save money.

    Seconded, that's progress though. Not sure if I miss the stadium though, moreso the link to the 25 years of my life I spent in Gainesville.

    What will people blame next if we don't have perennial number 1 recruiting classes.

    What’s the traffic going to be like when 5000 try to exit on Hull road and then to 34th Street?

    Atlanta has the hold my beer of all hold my beers when it comes to traffic save maybe LA
    Give gap take gap is a fundamental practice that would really help any traffic problem. And these idiots that can’t operate a round about are the Bane of my existence
