You should have quoted the same reporter's next tweet, too:

SDSU says it can get something done with another partner.
Or maybe it could play home games in Spokane's Joe Albi Stadium?

They are playing with fire. They are in no position to get everything they want.

What on earth are they doing? They are going to end up beating out UMass for the longest distance from campus to their "home" stadium.

"Spokane's Joe Albi Stadium" is sarcasm. The poster is from north Idaho and Spokane is across the border in Washington.

Wedge you live in California, you should have caught that.

I know its a joke. But driving to the nearest FBS/NFL stadium isn't. In fact, the nearest NFL/FBS stadium will literally be their only option if they are left out of this deal.

who owns petco park
padres want no FB that will tear up grass
stadium is spending millions dollars to refigure field for Holiday bowl
8 fb games [6 SDST & 2 bowls] at 40,000 a game spending 100 bucks is 32 million
u can fix alot of grass for that money

could SDST play neutral site game every yr vs BYU in LA on labour day wkedme in sept
that would give SDST 1 home game in sept

could SDST play neutral site game EVERY other yr vs Ariz in LV
in early oct would help avoid MLB playoffs

University leadership tends to be more risk adverse than hard bargainers to get the perfect deal.

Arkansas State was looking to build a convention center and hotel on campus and one of the developers applying was quickly cut because they had a history of some financial issues. The developer liked the market and got hooked up with some locals to build a competing facility. I'll call the developer A.

Local media and local politicians quickly rallied to the project led by A, while AState picked developer B.

A was given a number of tax incentives while B's application was rejected.

Few months later. A's project is subject to two lawsuits for unpaid bills and at least three contractor liens are filed against the project. While B's project is just awaiting one more permitting clearance to start.

Based on the scant information I've read about SDSU, my instinct is to side with SDSU.
