RE: Facility Needs
Another advantage Dixie State has over Tarleton State is St. George, Utah's annual growth over Stephenville, Texas. In 1980, both communities were virtually the same size at approximately 11.5K. Now, St. George, Utah population is nearly 93K whereas Stephenville, TX population is just under 22K. St. George, UT grew nearly the whole population of Stephenville in the last 10 years.

Report: 3 Utah Areas Top Nation in Population Growth

From US News article...
"St. George ranked fifth in growth among all metro areas, growing 29% from 138,115 residents to 177,556."

Yeah, well, Tarleton has an enrollment of 13,000+ vs Dixie's 11,000, and still one of the fastest growing universities in Texas. So that community growth isn't really equating to institutional growth. Plus Tarleton is in the midst of building a 2nd campus, not another little satellite location, but a full-blown campus in Fort Worth, the fastest growing city in America. Enrollment is projected to nearly double by 2030. Couple that with PUF access and our new athletic fee that is directly tied to enrollment, Tarleton is in a really good position to fund some major facility improvements over the next few years.

Bro Tarleton didn't even make this list of the 30 fastest growing schools in the state.

Also, I'm not sure what you think the difference between a satellite campus and a "full blown" campus is but that Ft Worth campus definitely feels like a satellite a la TXST-Round Rock. Looks very reminiscent of the early look of TXST-RR with the one building. But that's a good thing for y'all, satellite students still have to pay the athletic fee. If it was a separate "full blown" campus you wouldn't get that fee.

Gotta agree. We need to temper our hopes for the Fort Worth Campus. I would like it to remain an extension of the main campus ala Texas State-Round Rock, UT Arlington-Fort Worth, Sam Houston-The Woodlands.

However, A&M has shown time and again that they will let their system makes tinker with satellite campuses until they reach a certain point and then they spin them off into free standing A&M siblings.

A&M Commerce-Texarkana became TAMU Texarkana
Tarleton Central Texas (Killeen) became TAMU-Central Texas
A&M Kingsville-San Antonio became TAMU San Antonio
Laredo State College (formerly A&I-Laredo) became TAMIU

How do you feel about that? Is that a good thing or bad thing? I guess that would be bad regarding the athletic fee.

It will. Tarleton-Central Texas from the get-go was planned to be turned over to the A&M brand. Fort Worth would have to be pried from Tarleton's cold dead hands. When I say full-blown campus, I mean free-standing and self-operating, not affixed to any juco "university complex" like McClennan or Navarro.

Not sure what you mean by the juco comment but if they become a free standing university then their students wont count towards your enrollment and you wont get any athletic fees from them.

Fort Worth Campus has multiple phases... the master plan has it detailed with multiple buildings. Now can we get back to the original issue? How about the field house demo video Coach Beasley our up?

Maybe just a little bit more than a remodel.

Report: 3 Utah Areas Top Nation in Population Growth

From US News article...
"St. George ranked fifth in growth among all metro areas, growing 29% from 138,115 residents to 177,556."

Yeah, well, Tarleton has an enrollment of 13,000+ vs Dixie's 11,000, and still one of the fastest growing universities in Texas. So that community growth isn't really equating to institutional growth. Plus Tarleton is in the midst of building a 2nd campus, not another little satellite location, but a full-blown campus in Fort Worth, the fastest growing city in America. Enrollment is projected to nearly double by 2030. Couple that with PUF access and our new athletic fee that is directly tied to enrollment, Tarleton is in a really good position to fund some major facility improvements over the next few years.

Please provide the article that states this. Simply stating it doesn't mean it's true. Pistol referenced a US News & World Report article (although he claims 93k residents and US News claims 177k). Then we'll engage.

True or not I dont understand how Ft Worth is relevant to the main Tarleton campus as its an hour and 15 away. Whether or not Ft worth is the fastest growing city is irrelevant but just for fun heres a list I found. Im sure theres probably 20 different ones to choose from though.

Lost me there.

Ok, I'll entertain your request:

http://fortworthtexas.gov/news/2020/06/P...Estimates/

"Seattle has been the fastest growing large city (more than 500,000 population) since 2010, with 24% growth between 2010 and 2019, while Fort Worth and Austin are tied for second-fastest-growing large city."

I was way off-base, FTW is the 2nd fastest-growing city.
