You know how "last minute" BS/FUBAR happens in a project of this size. Originally, the construction was to have begun about 6 months earlier. Welcome to the Texas A&M bureaucracy.

    It wouldn’t surprise me if it’s not ready this year. It’s hard to build the Taj Mahal in one year. Lot of details that are hard to coordinate in a small window of time. Hope for the best but Always have plan B ready.

    I've always wondered if they had a Kimbrough contingency plan, but then they did the whole Kimbrough goodbye all last season at every game. Guess we will see. It seems like a lot to have ready by the first of September from what I see. I drive by a couple times a week and it seems like it's starting to pick up speed finally when the weather allows

    I think it may pick up after April 1. Western Builders (contractor for FB stadium) is also building the baseball stadium in Amarillo. It has to be finished by April 1. The two projects were started about the same time and there is no comparison in the progress of the two projects. I think Western is concentrating on BB now and will speed up the FB stadium after BB is completed.

    Western Builders has a good track record competing projects on time.

    I drove by an hour ago. Looking good.

    Also, if Buffalo Stadium is not ready for Sep 7 game with Azusa, it's most likely that WT will travel to Azusa again this year, Azusa would then come to WT two years in a row. It's not going to be till around the end of April before the seating vendor and plan will be finalized. Picking out your seats won't happen before them.

    I believe our AD is presenting a thorough update tomorrow at our monthly sports luncheon. I'll pass on any new interesting or pertinent info about the stadium.
