Yes we do.

To be a better venue.
To attract better events.
To make our community nicer and more aesthetic.
To give us a feeling of beign a real program.
To compete with our peers
To look better to other conferences.
To lure a bowl game.
To continue to show our community that we aren't MDC in sports.
To be taken seriously.
So that we aren't chaising our tail when people start attending.

If your fear is that we will spend money and never fill it, then shut to doors and get out of the Sport. #Investments

Facepalm. Chia, you know better.

This is a thread if hypotheticals. As I've tried to explain in our text line. FIU should complete the stadium per the renderings to include the lipstick on a pig improvements you detail.

The reality is that FIU is Building a Convention Center and Hotel. There aren't real nice places to stay in West Miami, this could be one. A completed venue along with the University City vision should be tied together. Unless that University City Vision is just Sweetwater2.0

From what I've heard, seems like the hotel/alumni center project not happening anytime soon per the most recent budget approved by state legislature.

Because why would Florida want to fund things that are additive to a university? But hey, the state bought us a MRAP.

I wish the university would just build the alumni center attached to the stadium, that'll give us that facade we need and we can build the tower as well.

Agree 100%, FIU already made its first step on being serious about the football program by hiring Coach Davis. The school has to continue with this momentum if they want to grow. Like I mentioned before, we have 50k students and 200+ Alumni in this city. If you want FIU not to shadow the []__[] then you need to talk serious business.

Doing the minimum won't do anything in a marketing perspective that will lure profitable events.

Alright, I'm hyped! Let's build this stadium!

Not the second tier... just tower and facade. Lets go!

Oh, and the other scoreboard... something small.

Let's go!

Oh... and the hot dogs, yah.

I'd like to see an indoor practice field and fixing of the stadium. The second deck will follow.

FIU and the next President need to get serious about upgrading facilities. Its a joke compared to other programs, we are getting by on the minimum. And when Butch leaves, FIU will be screwed. Hope he gets the stadium upgraded be fore he leaves. Sneaky Pete will not hesitate to screw FIU.

The worst part of all of this... is that FAU's stadium is GORGEOUS compared to ours.

Pains me so bad to say that.

The FAU stadium is definitely better than ours overall.
