Why can't GA State and Directional Florida BOTH draw well?

That was when State went 0-12, 1-11? I know they were pretty bad first making that transition from FCS to FBS. Any team finish like that, they're going to draw a small crowd. Even the diehards get restless then. They played inside too - and no one likes that for NCAA Football.

Not much else remaining space for those that want to watch low end football. Same problem that FIU has some let's start a thread about them being awesome. Unless you're going to offer $5 tickets and free beer. It will be a tough task in Atlanta unless you can shut down Ga. Tech and maybe the Falcons.
You do realize the NHL no longer has team in Atlanta?

Good to know. I did a google search of Atlanta and that name popped up. Ironically so did Ga. Tech but no Ga. State.


It's already been noted: Tech isn't THE school in Atlanta. You don't really have to shut them down, you just have to perform well yourself. There really isn't one school that can totally claim it. I mean, obviously Tech's a P5 with a huge fanbase, but they're no UGA. Fighting the SEC and other ACC schools - not just Tech - is State's biggest hurdle.

Already been noted: Thrashers relocated to Winnipeg a few years ago. Do some research before you want to chime in.

I'd also add, about that list, Braves are largely done when NCAAF starts, WNBA - you're grasping at straws - and Hawks are just really getting going when NCAAF is on its way out.
He doesn't care about logic. He and C2 just love to hate us.

As a friend of mine likes to point out, of our 104 year history we have been serious about athletics for 8 years. I would say really 3 or since the Braves announced their move and since Charlie Cobb became AD. Let's talk in 4 years once the stadium and IPF and convocation center are done.

Panama, are you guys doing any more updates to your stadium, or did you complete the project last off season.

Last season was Phase I of five for the entire property. It will likely take until Phase 3 or 4 for the stadium to be completed. The plan is for part of the former RF upper deck to be removed and be rebuilt over the new east side stands. The IPF would then be built behind the east side stands in the gap where RF used to be. The arena and IPF will also fit into those five buildout phases.

Georgia State plans 8,000-seat convocation center just south of I-20
January 26, 2018, 4:09 pm
By Maggie Lee

Updated with clarification from GSU: basketball games would be played at the new center, but offices for basketball and practices will be kept at the Sports Arena.

Students entering Georgia State University this year may in four years march across an indoor stage at a new school-owned building to receive their diplomas, if all goes quickly on a design and construction schedule for a new building just south of I-20.

A $5 million bond for design of a building simply called the “Convocation Center” appears in Gov. Nathan Deal’s proposed budget for the year that will begin in July.

It would be built on a roughly 6.5-acre plot on the northwest corner of Fulton Street and Capitol Avenue. That’s between Interstate 20 and the former Turner Field’s parking lots. It’s the block just west of the Ramada Hotel, and is now part paved, part grassy and all empty.

“What we’re envisioning for the proposed facility is a 200,000-square foot, multiuse state-of-the-art facility to support various athletic events, conferences, commencements, graduation ceremonies, convocation … large gatherings, concerts,” said Ramesh Vakamudi, GSU’s Assistant Vice President for Facilities Management Service.

It’ll also be the court for GSU basketball games, though the Sports Arena will continue as the home (offices, training and practice) for basketball.

“Currently we don’t have on campus a large indoor assembly area, so this facility … proposed at about an 8,000-seat capacity … would provide much sorely needed gathering space,” he said.

Right now, a maximum of 3,854 people can watch Panther basketball at the Georgia State Sports Arena. And commencement this May is scheduled for Georgia State Stadium (the old Turner Field.) In the recent past, graduation ceremonies have been at the Georgia Dome.

The entire project budget is $80 million, Vakamudi said. He expects design would take about a year and construction would take about two years.

But, the bond needs legislative approval first before anybody starts putting pencil to paper. State budget hearings are underway and will finish by the end of March.

Asked if it will have a parking deck, Vakamudi said they’re not contemplating any parking deck, though there may be some space on the site that might permit some surface parking.

And anyway, the building’s patrons will have access to plenty of parking in the huge existing parking lot on the next block south.

Elsewhere on Deal’s proposed bond list are other Fulton County builds:

$30.6 million bond for construction on the renovation of the Price Gilbert Library and Crosland Tower at Georgia Tech. That’s the second bond for the project; the first was $47 million approved for the fiscal year that’s underway now
$7.5 million bond for the construction of a pedestrian mall by the Georgia World Congress Center Authority
