Seems to me that there might be bigger fish to fry. Overall funding of football comes to mind. A few key examples:

-Only able/willing to purchase new white uniforms last season. Had to wait until this season to purchase the new red ones
-Up until this coming season, thanks to the Football Association, the players/families were charged for their Nike football gear package (socks, under pad gear, training gear, etc.), albeit at a reduced rate, but how many divsion 1 programs charge the players/families for their training gear?
-No indoor facility (in Ithaca, NY)
-Going cheap on post game meals (pizza, fried chicken). Is this how you feed a division 1 football team?
-Skinmping on coaches. Is there a division 1 program in the country with fewer coaches and less experience?
-How about sports performance? Sports performance management? Sports science? Real training and medical staff. Has anyone visited a real PROGRAM? The support system and resources isn't anywhere near where it needs to be. It's a good thing the education is one of the BEST. The alumni network is awesome! The commitment to football is tremendously lacking.

I can live with the stands. Do we want quality recruits? Let's strive for real, quantifiable improvement to the resources that are allocated and can make a real difference first. When they can fill the crescent, then they can put up some more stands.

Sorry...Just my two cents.

Good points. I wasn't aware of the other deficiencies, but I can tell you for certain that the indoor practice facility will be built before the West Stands/with offices/training space underneath them. As I mentioned in another of Sprint's postings before, they already have a large construction pledge toward the funding for that facility, but everything is on hold until the new President gets settled in.

I have heard that. Certainly a step in the right direction.
