If they get a bid to the Big 12, they will have a really nice stadium for their Big 12 conference mates to help fill.

And that's the point, invest to get to the B-12 & then fill it up with your real traditional rivals coming in.

I doesn't matter what happens with Liberty Stadium, the bigxii will not offer Memphis membership. However they do enjoy yanking our chain.

Yeah, they do. Not once, but twice told us “thanks but no thanks” and yet, people still believe that we are gonna be in the next round with Boise.

So stupid to invest more in an on campus stadium when Jerry World is available.

Cowboys Stadium is in Arlington, TX now. Outside of Dallas.

RE: Stadium Expansion
There are investments that need to be made that we have consistently been slow to make. Its hard to say they’re yanking our chain when we stop short of making the commitment others are eager to make.

Cowboys Stadium is in Arlington, TX now. Outside of Dallas.
Plus AT&T STADIUM seats 80,000 and Ford Stadium seats 32,000. It would look even worse as far as empty seats if SMU played in Arlington. SMU would be adding 48,000 more empty seats. Not a good idea.

Memphis? We have an as many as five threads arguing about what we should do about a stadium. That should count for something.


By a bunch of posters that whine about a $50 ticket. But hey as long as someone pays the 200 million it’s all good

I'm good for 100 of that. Can any one else make up the other $199,999,900?

It's payday. I have $80 I can pitch in.

Only $199,999,820 more to go.....

After the 3rd of the month i should have a couple of extra bucks if i start eating ramen for breakfast and lunch. Man that stuff has really gone sky high lately.

That chain is a short leash in case the Big XII loses a few more schools.
But I don't know where anyone else can go.

How hard would it be to have a bit-coin account we all paid into? Deposit into pay pal and it invests into Bit Coin for the stadium foundation.

Bitcoin is $40,199. I’ll hold my Bitcoin and Ethereum and give cash when the time comes. I will donate my Doge.
