SDSU FB - Boom or Bust?
Pro - If you're a football fan in San Diego, I'd imagine that your eyes are probably on the Aztecs.

Con - If Qualcomm goes away, where will SDSU play? I can't imagine that it will be easy to get a new stadium. And w/ the Chargers gone, will Qualcomm stay put? I'd imagine that the Padres will want a baseball-only stadium, and they might now have the leverage to get it (if they haven't already).

So is SDSU a buy, sell, or hold?

MLS stadium or bust, basically.

I'm gonna buy. Something will get worked out, I think.

You don't have to imagine. The Padres have been playing in their baseball-only ballpark for more than 13 years.

Awesome stadium at that too.

The Padres are willing to let SDSU use Petco for a year or two. After that, it gets dicey.

To be fair, 1) the last Padres game that I remember watching at San Diego was in the '98 Word Series when the Yankees crushed them, and 2) I did say "if they haven't already"

I don't think it's too dicey. The largest owner and executive chairman of the Padres' ownership group is Ron Fowler.

Ron Fowler is one of the biggest donors to SDSU athletics. A few months ago he donated $25 million to the SDSU business school, and it was renamed the Fowler College of Business Administration.

Anyways, I fully expect a new football stadium. It'll take awhile, but it'll get done. The Aztecs have too much pull in town - the mayor and 4 of the 5 county commissioners SDSU alums, and the mayor (who has a firm hold on power) repeatedly refers to himself as a "proud Aztec."

RE: SDSU FB - Boom or Bust?
It's dicey. SDSU needs to secure a site and start building a Stadium. Anything with the Padres would have to be temporary. And while the Pads suck now, they expect to be a playoff team in 3-4 years, whcich means SDSU will not be able to have a full slate of home games.

Basically Petco might be available for a year or two, but the Aztecs need their own stadium by 2021.

This is why being a renter is not a good idea.

I still don't understand why they can't keep the old Qualcom. That would be the cheapest most practical solution. USC and UCLA both play in ancient stadiums. Why not SDSU?

It's probably maintenance on the stadium that San Diego doesn't want to pay for any longer, particularly without the Chargers as the primary tenant. Did the city ever commit to a new stadium for the Chargers?

Could Angel Stadium host SDSU? I know it's a bit of a ride but other options aren't really there at present.
