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.Tere North wrote: ↑Tue Oct 16, 2018 8:43 amOK, 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.

Just means you care RedNeck! We need more of that right now.RedNeck wrote: ↑Tue Oct 16, 2018 10:23 amWell, whatever your alma mater is it sounds like they got something positive going. So at least you have that the fall back on.Tere North wrote: ↑Tue Oct 16, 2018 8:43 amOK, if PJamma Zone won't work, what will?

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).
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
I know this post was active a long time ago, but did anything ever come from this west side project? I believe the first post in 2016 said they were going to be sending out info for this project and attempting to raise funds, but never saw anything truly public or saw any fundraising efforts? Just curious where most of this is in process, seems like the stands have been a safety issue for last decade and just keeps getting kicked down road. Obviously the current enrollment issues did not help this situation.
A building for ~100 players is more important than seating??
At the rate the west side is deteriorating, I have to wonder when it will be condemned. Unsafe seating, unsafe stairs, combined with no ADA access. The west side, regardless of what we'd like to see there is a life, health, safety issue.
Ultimately I think that means we'll ding the student for it like they paid for the east side. But in the short term, we need to look at some sort of tarp canopy over the east side and move everyone over there until the west side is fixed. Waiting until someone is seriously hurt and sues it not a good risk management proposition.
