ODU had better hurry up and build this thing, or else by the time they do, there won't be any seats in it at all.

For the lazy

Their vision of 30k seats remains. It just will take longer than most of us want to happen.

Don't forget the latest where they say 20,000 and that the goal isn't increased seating. Sigh...

The above article really lays out how the process works, and does not convey any concern that it may not be legal. I also doubt that Ballard would have spent half a million on a study without knowing whether ODU could even legally entertain his offer. Something doesn't add up. Wonder if they had a handshake deal with Populous already in place for stadium design and that is the reason for blowing off Ballard.
Of course they did. The Populous design award would have broken federal law and people would have gone to jail if it were a federal contract. Being a contract manager myself, this thing disgusts me beyond comprehension.

Yeah, and light rail was envisioned to go to the Oceanfront. Once the 20k underwhelming pile of scrap metal starts producing empty seats before the end of year 1, phase 2 will never happen. If you actually believe otherwise after 5 years of empty promises in exchange for a short term money grab, I have a bridge to sell you.

You're right that they may never get to phase 2 or 3.

But there is no need to be condescending. Especially since I never said it was guaranteed.

I just said the vision remains. Pretty much all college football teams have future phases they may never build.

When do Broderick and company finally announce that we are dropping back to FCS.
