Let me guess, as Long as it's not your money?? Do you realize how much ticket costs are going to increase to cover the $65M difference, and the $80M in interest over 20 years to pay it back?

And do you realize they're still paying on the renovation that took place under Broyles?

Gotta love blind sheep.

Do you realize that the original plans were to build the stands over the existing BAC and it wasn't feasible in the end? That it now includes an extra $6m big screen, $4m worth of elevators and towers, and $40m for concourse, Founder's suites, updating existing suites and club areas, and new concession areas in other areas of the stadium?

Got to love the uninformed.......

A $78M project for over 5,000 seats that became $160M for 3,000 seats, to go along with other projects that had significant overruns.

Ouch

The only link was the 2011 Master Plan in which what was proposed then isn't anything like what they've done, but facts aren't important on HV.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2016/06/16/arkansas-trustees-approve-160-million-stadium-expansion/85984994/

" The University of Arkansas Board of Trustees has voted to move ahead with a $160 million expansion of Razorback Stadium, one that will add approximately 4,800 seats and enclose the north end zone of the stadium in addition to other upgrades and renovations.

By an 8-2 vote Thursday, the board approved the plan that also includes the rebuilding of the Broyles Athletic Center, the building that houses the athletic department's administrative offices and football museum."

Ouch. Guess all but two of the board members should resign.

Exactly, five years before construction.

People here want a big time program but don't want to pay big time dollar.

Actually, big time dollar does pay seeing that every suite in the stadium is sold.  But hey, that doesn't fit the narrative.

Of course I want to win more, but to act like the stadium expansion is an issue is just an uneducated take.

So that means the BOT did not approve the $160 million stadium expansion and renovation?

Please, enlighten me...

Yes I heard the call on DTS, unreal

She calls in here in NEA all the time.  She told the story once of how she walked down the benches court side before a home game in Bud Walton, and was close enough to ask Pelphrey a question.   

To his face:
"What does it feel like to be the man who set this program back 30 years?"  She said he stared her down for like 5 seconds and then walked off. 

She has guts like you wouldn't believe.  Don't fool with her.

Ms. Lisa used to call into my show.

I even had her come into studio a couple of times.

I love Ms. Lisa.  She is not someone to be messed with.  She is a sweet lady that can tear you apart with her words when  angered.  I'm a little surprised that people are so quick to rip on her.  She is a radical Razorback fan that you would love to be around.

I love Ms. Lisa.

Regarding my reply #36...I wasn't saying the Stadium expansion is an issue. My point was what the BOT members would probably do with yet another letter complaining about Jeff Long... "File 13"

Wasn't feasible?  Or poor planning?  Or more half truths from Jeffi? 

There's a huge gap between $78,000,000 and $160,000,000; no matter which side of the rainbow you're on.

Guess what?

The BOT (full of Arkansans) approved the expansion.  The stadium is being built.  The BOT (full of Arkansans) approved the debt for the stadium.  The suites are sold.

Stop crying. Boo Hoo Hoo.

Oh, I forgot you are a bad, bad man.  Sure you can mess with her.  You can take it big boy.  She will just be louder than you, funnier than you, and make you look like a fool for messing with a "postmenopausal" woman.  She will refer to herself as being postmenopausal to explain why she is so angry.

I'm sure with your wit and wisdom you will come out looking just fine.

Personally, she is neither funny nor passionate.  She comes across as someone who needs to be institutionalized.

Additionally, you know nothing about me.  You've never heard me speak.  You don't know my wit.  You don't know my wisdom.

But I do appreciate your condescending tone.

I know that it takes you two post to get your thoughts in order.

I don't mind you posting then editing once you figure out what you really want to say...

No underestimating.

So she tapes her phone conversations and then broadcasts her version of the conversation on statewide radio.

What amazes me is that based on past and present behavior of Jeff Long why is what she saying difficult to believe. He's said nearly as much himself with the words, "Arkansas is not a win at all cost program". Well, to anyone who can think past one dimension, Long's quote is telling you, me and every other Razorback football fan that the UA athletic department is there for molding minds of young men and women and if they happen to be successful, there's your cherry on top, Hog fans.

I lost all faith in Jeff Long when he fired Petrino (and I don't give a rat's ass about his record this season at UL). Petrino's success here led high level donors to believe that the UA could and were on the path to capture past glory, thus the money came rolling in for the new football operations facility. And a year or so later we all know what happened. No one who has hired Petrino, even UL for the second time has caught any grief, except for the small-time bomb throwers who words sound like a firecracker dud when they hit. I said it in 2012, and I'll say it again, Long was playing to the sympathy of the American public when he had ESPN all to himself on the day he fired Petrino. Those faux crocodile tears make me ill when I think about Long going to his hanky to dry them up. The news cycle then and now last 24 hours. We've had two horrendous shootings the past 3 weeks in this country and America has moved on to something else. Yet the spineless AD at the UA and most of you in that post on this message room were so worried what the country would think of us if we kept Petrino. Speak of being self centered, what would make a UA fan actually believe that the UA would be the constant ridicule of the country if we kept Petrino. Egocentric and gutless wonders ! 

And now we find ourselves with an AD who must believe we are Columbia University in NYC along with a strange obsession of needing more athletic facilities built. Most athletic businesses have a blue print of winning first, constructing fine new facilities second. "And the band plays on"

Augustus Jeff.  When I found it, UA Athletics was a city of bricks.  I left it a city of marble.

Wise AD Long and his band of merry men had to show that Bobby who's the boss.  If the football program got destroyed in the process, so be it.  The whole thing was amateur hour at it's finest.
