This is real good news. With these people lining up behind it, the state should not have a problem with the rental car tax.

Of course a cynic might point out that if the BJCC stadium proposal fails, they (Watts and the BOT) might be faced with a demand to build the OCS. By backing the BJCC, they can avoid such a potential confrontation.

They get what they want - UAB does not get an OCS. Why would they oppose it?

By the time we are actually able to build one, the land UAB bought for it will all be built over.

Well, the flip side is when it doesn't happen they can say that they tried, were behind it, and someone else screwed it up

That is great news to know that BOT approves. Also it is great to know that the corporate community approves, as well. This is going to happen, sooner than we expected. I can't wait until they break ground and to see the heavy machinery preparing foundation for the new stadium, uptown. This is huge!

The BOT considers it the lesser of two evils.

We have nice place holders for a stadium and will require little demo. Look at it this way. In 20 years the cockroaches will have died off or retired and we will get another new stadium if we can do anciaymake it happen. Let’s build this one, grow out program and then move it on campus when the time and political climate is more conducive.

It may even be a kick start of a potential move up in conferences.
