Exclamation Football Stadium
Great to see the addition of lights to Barker Lane Stadium. Does anybody know of a timetable for the completion of the stadium?

The lights are for game one this year. The rest of the stadium? Who knows? Three years ago?

RE: Football Stadium
Wonder to what extent the med school is delaying the football stadium completion?

Probably OC. My personal opinion is that its hard to run TWO or THREE capital campaigns at once at a school of C-U's size. Your pool of money donors is smaller than most places and its tough to get them to give to more than one project at a time.

RE: Football Stadium
That is a good point. The original completion timetable for both phases was before the start of the 2009 season. I am sure the economy tanking around 2008 was part reason why it was not completed on time. I am sure a lot of the money they were expecting didn't come in because of the economy. A completed stadium will add to what is already a pretty good gameday atmosphere in Buies Creek.

Rode by this weekend and saw that a portion of the two poles on the west side have been installed (flanking the "trailer in the sky").

If you would go ahead and make that large contribution we could get the field finished and remove that trailer in the sky.
