you might not like the guy, but geez give him some credit.

To use your logic it did not matter who we hired to coach basketball for the last 25 years.....it may have made a difference, but then again maybe it would not have made a difference....We'll never know.

I understand he’s the well-greased political insider in our admin who has gotten us support in the general assembly. You were the one who stated it wouldn’t have happened without him. I just think that goes too far.

Since you often like to cut out critical parts of posts here is what I actually said.

"You guys can make fun of and criticize Charlie King all you want but without him JMU would not have many of the new facilities that have been built of substantially upgraded over the last 10 years.

Be careful what you wish for b/c when he retires soon there is no idea of who the next person will be...."

I never said specifically the AUB Center which is what you implied.....but if you think ALL the campus improvements over the last 10 years would have happened without Charlie King you are delusional. Like him, don't like him....I could care less....but that man secures the money and financing to build everything on that campus that everyone enjoys.

Calm down, dude. It was a harmless joke about his pants, not the person. Sheesh. Product of today's society. Can't have fun with anything without somebody pretending to be offended.

Nah dude, you calm down and pipe down.....Don't tell me what to do and talk to me like I am your kid behind a keyboard. Nah you are a product of today's society that hide behind questionable humor to take shots at someone based on what, their appearance. I am not offended, I am just fed up with the constant CK bashing which often masquerade as humor.

I am just fed up with all these supposedly 'knowledgeable' posters who like to take shots at CK every chance they get on every single thread. It gets kind of old coming from folks who talk like they should know more, but based on their comments really have no idea what CK does, is responsible for, or have ever even met the man.

I could similarly claim that people who support CK are either his subordinate employees or blinded by some personal relationship they’ve developed. My claim wouldn’t be definitively correct, just as the claim in your final sentence isn’t some sort of fact.

Love it. Thanks for sharing.

If I could caption this photo... https://jmusports.com/galleries/faciliti...7088/72375

...it would be Sean saying to Mark: "Now Mark, this is where we're going to win and you guys are going to hope to win"

Thanks for posting the link. Building is going to be great once it is done.
One of Murphy's Laws states that in any project the first 90% of the work takes 90% of the time and the last 10% of the work takes the other 90% of the time. Seems that they are definitely in the last 10% of the work portion. Still seems like there is a lot to do, hope they can get it all done on schedule. The finishing work that they are involved in right now always seems to take a lot of time due to the precision work that is required as it is what everyone sees.

Go Dukes!!

Wow! Definitely coming along. Looks like all the rough-in stuff is done, now it's down to flooring, ceiling tiles, paint, furniture, and fixtures. It almost looks like they could put some hoops up and the practice gym would be ready to use.

Watching the construction of something like this is interesting. The first several months are so exciting because the frame and structure are going up. Then it's several months of much less exciting stuff from a visual standpoint, so we're all just waiting for that stage to finish. Then the last few months are awesome because it's starting to look 'real' and get finished.

Thanks for posting. I know pictures are deceiving, and obviously not an issue, but the ceiling in the main arena seems very low to accommodate the scoreboard.

That aspect in arenas always interests me as well. I was way too interested in the possibility of punts hitting the giant screens at Jerry-World when it opened.
