West AZone enhancements? Did they forget and leave the placards at the office? Didn't even show those and only mention on West Zone was of what they have already done.

move the baseball scoreboard so that those sitting in the upper corner of the new Chapman Grandstands aren't looking at the back of it. If you sit there, you can't see anything that occurs in right center to right field.

2 extra indoor courts are needed

I hope they fix the veiwing for indoor because the way it is now, viewing a match indoors is not very good

I have never been to a CU tennis match or a soccer match. Glad they are making that bridge. Walking down that sidewalk is a nightmare.

Your drunk...the people walking the other way drunk.....trying to walk on a sidewalk that is made for one person. 80,000 people coming to town and we are funneled into a human game of frogger

Once they finish the west-end zone.. I wonder if they will ever do anything to the East

TDP wil propose eliminating "the hill" and replace it with a women's golf practice green


The Hill

I hope and trust that President Barker and the Board realize the Hill is an important part o the beauty and legacy of Death Valley and should not be changed.


when are they supposed to start on the new student union

near the old Johnstone A? Weren't plans released several years ago?


Wow!!!! What is the cost going to be to turn the water

Maybe its just me...


Posted: Jan 14, 2011 1:00 PM
 

but I really don't see how we can drop 50 mil on athletics and at the same time become a top 20 university while being in a recession.


Re: Maybe its just me...


Posted: Jan 14, 2011 1:06 PM
 

Because that money belongs to the athletic department, not the university. Article states that the developments are funded by private contributions and football revenues.


Re: Maybe its just me...

It is just you if you don't go to any of the athletic events, give to IPTAY, or suports Clemson athletics in some kind of a financial means.

That article was written by an intern...got any links to a real reporter, or even a respected writer?


Either one of these work for you?

This situation is not painting a good picture for Clemson or Troutman. At the very least, it is bad PR for the university. I have a hard time believing there is not some truth to what he is saying.


I missed the plans for the new 50 meter pool, oh that's

right, TDP is destroying that sport at Clemson (their team GPA is too high). Save the swimming team, run TDP off.......back to his backwoods relative in Arkansas.


Further evidence that TDP is not committed...

to supporting Clemson athletics. <---- somehow someone will spin it that way. Too many people have committed themselves to that argument. Once they cross that line they have to 1. consider that they were wrong (unlikely) 2. Spin everything to fit their preclusion. (likely) 3. Or change their username after we win an orange bowl.

If they spent a Trillion dollars on upgrades, less than half would be Satisfied. Like or not in sports, Clemson is a football school. Football pulls in the most of the sporting event revenue. Out of the 50 million, football getting 10 mil..

Actually, the football program has $25 million of the improvements earmarked for it between the new practice facility and West End Zone completion.


woot! we finally get the Oculus!

Awesome, but the WEZ is excessive, they should redo the north and south entrances to make them look halfway decent instead. A nice fence instead of busted-### chain link and cracked up asphalt by the south entrance would be a much nicer addition than that giant futuristic-space-tube thing.


I like the way it looks inside the stadium, but this new

projection looks so bizarre. Maybe it would look better with alittle more symmetry. Someone posted something about the east endzone. I kind of like it simpler, with the giant gateway.


Wow, someone has a problem with the eastside gateway?***

What about the Swim Team?


Posted: Jan 14, 2011 2:30 PM
 

Clemson cut the swim program. They couldn't set some of the 50 million aside to build a 50 meter pool which they said was needed for the swim team. Why don't they get rid of that stupid oculus and build the swim team a 50 meter pool?


Re: What about the Swim Team?


Posted: Jan 14, 2011 2:49 PM
 

I don't know, maybe because people actually care about football and it generates a ton of money to help cover the costs of most other sports. Just two possible reasons.

save the swim team right? Someone said that would cost 2 million I think? Clemson cut a top 10 perrenial power wrestling program with national champions and all americans which at the time could've been saved for less than $300,000 from the reports I read. A lot more prep kids now out there participating in wrestling in the region than swimmers and divers... and comparatively speaking swimming sounds much more expensive. Just playing devil's advocate. Don't feel like the lone ranger though dude. At least you survived Title 9...at least until now.


You're just upset that the swim team doesn't attract the

ladies like the football team does. Can't blame you there. You should have went out for the chick magnet sport

My support to these upgrades will be equal to TDP's and Barker's support of Clemson Swimming: Zero


Re: Clemson announces $50 million plan to continue athletic

How entitled can one possibly be?

The big three sports bring in the revenue and donations the AD runs off of. Without those, it would be impossible for sports like swimming and diving and women's rowing to exist.

Regardless of the AD's stance on the swim team, swimmers complaining about the investments being made to the football facilities is effectively biting the hand that feeds.

I had sympathy for the swim and diving teams, but after the goldfish whining and childish behavior displayed by its representatives here, that is no longer the case.

For $2million they could have kept the Swimming & Diving teams. That would only mean reducing tennis and soccer by $1million each. The S&D team has been more competitive than both soccer teams and the men's tennis team and they are the best students of any Clemson sport. Tennis and soccer could do a lot to their facilities with "only" $9,200,000.

Maybe the Oculus can have a 50 meter fountain.***
