Pancakes and sausage will not entice college kids to come to Q lot on a Saturday.
OK, if PJamma Zone won't work, what will? FYI, my alma mater still has its PJamaRama associated with Homecoming and it remains a big draw.
I love that name... PJamaRama! At this point, let's try anything. No bad ideas, just good ideas that maybe didn't work as hoped.

Well, whatever your alma mater is it sounds like they got something positive going. So at least you have that the fall back on.

I want to remain positive, but there was a part of my life that was magical when you're kinda an adult but not really and I lived in this fantasy land called college in the hinterlands of Western Illinois. Watching what is happening to Western is like watching a friend fade away which is just sad. Also a part of me seems to feel less than whole too. It's weird.

Didn't mean to dis yer pancakes and sausage, my wife makes it every Sunday and I could take it or leave it (usually the latter).
Just means you care RedNeck! We need more of that right now.

Lot of room in Q lot, a lot of over flow on the intramural fields.

One of the reasons I play the lottery is to win some cash that would pay for the stadium/football building plan for Hanson Field. Of course the stadium would remain Hanson Field, but I would definitely have our name on the football building. "The Carter Football Educational Facility at Hanson Field" Has a ring to it, don't you think? I have thought about what I would do with the rest of the money and I know I would make sure that I shared the winnings with all of my family members. Probably would build a hurricane proof house in St. Petes Beach, would probably buy a dwelling in Macomb so we could stay over night for football and basketball games too. I might also buy up some of the land on Adams, right around where the off campus bookstore was. I would put in a nice plaza with Starbucks and a couple of other shops and things. Just a daydream I guess. ;) jc

Any news on the new west side of Hanson Field? Last I heard it's still a work in progress. Is that correct?

I think I saw somewhere that a football building has also been listed as a "big time" need at Hanson Field! Either/or we should have our answer this spring. ;)
