New football stadium
I know there is quite a bit of talk of a new stadium on some other sites. But such discussions could be damaging to the plan at this time. Until Tulane has made appropriate contacts and generated needed support from political and neighborhood leaders, such discussions need to be kept private.

RE: New football stadium
You guys are trying to get one, too? So are we (UAB)...The buzz is all over Blazertalk about an OCS, Memphis fans have been demanding one, too, but they've got other issues to address with the football team's play on the field. It'd be great if every Conference USA football team that doesn't have an on-campus stadium yet actually gets one in a timely manner. Good luck to you on that, meantime, I'll be at Legion Field this Saturday for your game against our Blazers.

RE: New football stadium
On campus facilities are the backbone of a sports program and show a commitment to it. If you don't have one, your program will have too many down periods. I was just a kid when Tulane stadium was demolished and I couldn't figure out why. I just assumed the academic dodo birds who think athletic programs are below them, took over. Am I wrong? And why didn't Tulane stay in the SEC? Vandy did.

RE: New football stadium
I'd read some online dialogue that Tulane's unveiling the plans for an on campus stadium today at 1:30.

If it's true, congratulations. I hope that we at UAB can be that fortunate to garner this kind of support from those who claim to have our best interests in mind.

RE: New football stadium
You know what? I'd forgotten that Tulane was once in the SEC a long time ago. Could someone please tell me how you all got the stadium financed (other than the big check I heard that Malcolm Glazer wrote for y'all, I'm curious about the amount given by him - is he a Tulane Alumni?) and was there any interference similar to what we've been facing here at UAB with our board of so-called "trustees?"

I bet they can't wait to get out of the Louisiana Superdome.

RE: New football stadium
I'd read something online a while back that said that the plans for the new football stadium has been tabled...Was wondering if that status has changed any since. Any new developments?

I can't wait for UAB to get out of Legion Field.

RE: New football stadium
Was wondering if there's been any movement on the new football stadium for Tulane. Our BOT has told UAB officials to not bring the issue up about a new stadium for a couple of years. Democracy in action, eh?

I saw online a ranking of all the venues being used for Division 1 College Football, and whoever did these rankings, IMO, was either 01-wingedeagle or 03-drunk, because he/they had Legion Field (#121) ranked ahead of Tulsa's oncampus facilities (#124)...Unbelievable! I'm a UAB fan, and I know better than that! If I can find the link, I'll post it here for you to see , you'd be hard pressed to find any Blazers football fan who wouldn't be more than happy to have what Tulsa has at its' disposal as opposed to what we as fans and our players as a football team have to endure at the hands of an obviously inferior football venue that is Legion Field. See you guys in October.
