    My favorite picture is the slippery slope with a shovel in it.

    Good quote from the article:

    “I asked Theresa when I was going through the interview process ‘Do we want a football program here at SFU, or do we want a competitive football program at SFU?” recalled Thomas Ford, the Clan’s reigning GNAC Coach of the Year, “because they’re not the same thing.

    “So one of the things she talked about was the stadium project and some of the upgrades to the Lorne Davies Complex,” Ford continued, “and it’s a big part of the reason I took the opportunity here at Simon Fraser.”

    You did not have to be any kind of an expert to know that while the Clan’s fan base and its alumni have been very loyal, that the program’s game-day setting at Fox Field has been very challenging for its fans.

    “To our football program, the stadium project means the world because now we can truly be front-row-centre in front of our fans, our students and our families” continued Ford. “We’ve always had a home field, but there was nowhere to sit and that had to deter some people from coming to our games.

    “Now, I think that the thing which used to deter them will be the thing that now attracts them. And not just for the SFU community. Now, the whole Lower Mainland community can sit and watch a collegiate football game at the NCAA level, right here in our state-of-the-art facility.”

    Very nice. On a side note, any word yet about hockey?
