RE: Troy's Upgrades
Troy is in a great position for the next conference realignment. Thankfully they're in a terrible market, however they are on the verge of becoming one of the better G5 programs.. We need this downtown stadium to happen in a big way.

Yep, but NOTHING beats an OCS...

RE: Troy's Upgrades
you are right about that. I have no doubt we will eventually get an on campus stadium, however for conference realignment this city stadium is huge..

Two things. Can't remember, but we've probably discussed before. What if the city gave us legion field or sold it to us and used those funds for the new stadium. How much would we pay? $1 ?

Second? Every one seems to be happy with the pavilion even though most would like an IPF. Why not study a small OCS with options to expand later? We just finished a big capital campaign, so down the road when we get some more momentum, I think this should be brought up.

Hit the nail on the head.

I like the idea of building a small OCS (15K seats even). Literally anything on campus im all for.

With the $1million + annual upkeep just to keep Legion Field functioning at a bare minimum, I'm not sure buying would be a good idea.

After seeing it in person I like the current set up more than an IPF for our location
