RE: What's the latest on the IPF for football
Unfortunately, I'm not surprised at the lack of funding. We have very little fan base (meaning ticket sold) and even fewer deep pocket boosters. The football program does not make any money. When a program is outside of the Power 5 conferences. then it is always a struggle. The school needs a T. Boone Pickens.

We have a T. Boone Pickens. What we really need is about 20K-30K fans who are willing to go above and beyond buying a couple of $100 season tickets and who complain like babies when the cost of a parking pass increases by a few bucks.

We have a winner!

I even think the school was shocked at how poorly the "time to shine" was received by the community.

I was told the money WAS there. I was also told by 2 people within the athletic administration that ground breaking would take place right after the season and would be ready by next football season. A number of our players are also of the understanding that it will be ready by next season, as mentioned in a CA article where one player said, practicing in the cold or when it's raining won't be a problem next year when we're in our new indoor facility. I know for a fact Fuente was under the impression it'd be done under his watch (didn't happen), wonder what Norvell was told. Beginning to wonder if the damn thing will ever be built.
