  1. Thinking outside the box, two markets have two teams sharing one venue. Wouldn't Las Vegas rather have 17 NFL home dates rather than 8-9? It is also a market itching for an MLS franchise. The stadium is in place, just needs to strike a deal with the Raiders. Vegas has exploded in recent years with the introduction of pro sports and is always looking to add entertainment options for the hoards of tourists. Its looking highly probable the MLB and NBA will also be there by the end of the decade.
  2. So next season do we see Progressive commercials that are filmed at BoA Stadium???
  3. UNC adds a brand name and a presence in the Carolina's, remember the Big 10 added Rutgers in their last expansion, they added nothing but a television market. I could see Duke leading the way in that basketball-centric league, basically the Big East plus the former Big East schools in the ACC (Syracuse, Pitt, BC, V. Tech, Louisville) add in Duke, Georgia Tech, Virgina, Wake, Davidson and VCU. There would still be around 9-10 schools that could play out a football schedule.
  4. Yeah I think that Clemson and FSU are locks for the SEC, potential for Miami as well. The BIG 10 really wanted UNC the last time they expanded (Maryland and Rutgers), I think now they will make an offer that the Tarheels can't refuse. The fallout is going to be a mess, who knows where the schools that get left out of the Power 2 end up...
  5. Right, the state might want to hold off on handing out money for this. The Power 5 is gonna turn into the Power 2 rather quickly.
  6. Frankly, the way things are shaping up not sure what will be left of the ACC in a few years.
  7. Upper bowl seating for the July 9 game against Nashville is available. From the ticketmaster seating chart it looks to be just the north sections of the upper bowl. https://www.wsoctv.com/news/local/charlotte-fc-opens-upper-bowl-seats-july-9-americana-night-match/YT43LJZMEJBAPDW3453QWNP5AQ/
  8. What???? No way that they get 5 wins next season... 2 wins, Ruehl fired after week 5, Newton resigned again after week 8
  9. A parking deck fronting Tryon? As if that massive one in the backside isn't a big enough eyesore...
  10. He may not be moving the team but I could definitely see him threatening to move the team to try and get what he wants. Although by the end of the decade I could see San Diego being in the mix to put together a stadium deal, they also happen to be desperate for an MLS franchise. He said he wanted a casino as part of the headquarters project when it was announced but realized to late that there is zero chance of that happening in SC, this current situation is his way out of that deal.
  11. Proposal at 311 E. Second St. would rise 65 floors and house a 326 room Conrad Hotel as well as the 136 unit Conrad Residences Austin. Work is planned to start in late 2022. https://conradresidencesaustin.com/
  12. Ground has broken on this project now called 321 West which will stand 675 feet tall at 58 stories. This project will contain 369 apartments and 140,000sf of office space with completion expected in late 2024.
  13. Carr Properties has come on board this project which is planned at 43-stories with 738,000sf of office space. They are looking for a spring 2026 completion for this project. https://www.bizjournals.com/austin/news/2022/03/31/plans-unveiled-for-43-story-block-16.html Carr Properties Announces First Development Project in Austin, Texas – Carr Properties
  14. It seems this building may start construction soon. Now planned at 74 floors it is expected to rise over 1000 feet and will likely be the tallest building in Texas. The mixed-use building is now planned to contain: 352 apartments 251 room hotel 686,000sf of office space https://www.kvue.com/article/money/economy/boomtown-2040/planned-74-story-austin-skyscraper-could-become-tallest-texas/269-84630397-f6a5-4db7-9a10-b43b4b5da70c
  15. An amphitheater (even at 20k seats) is not big enough for the nfl draft.
  16. That intersection will always be a major traffic thoroughfare, the "town center" needs to be in an area where pedestrians can actually feel safe moving about.
  17. This is the type of project that should have been built at the Legacy Union site.
  18. Wow can't believe this hasn't been mentioned yet, but the primary kit was finally revealed today. Nothing special... wish that they would have just bought the Independence name/branding. https://www.mlssoccer.com/news/charlotte-fc-reveal-inaugural-carolina-kit-primary-jersey
  19. Is there really a market for that in Gastonia?
  20. If Texas and Oklahoma leave the Big 12 will be dead, the other power 4 conferences will pick off the remaining teams that they want. The Big 10 will also probably make another attempt at picking off some ACC schools. Sooner or later all those schools will go off on their own and leave the NCAA in the dust.
  21. Why would he do that when he has a facility under construction in Rock Hill?
  22. That shadow could be a big distraction for ball players during afternoon games.

    I guessing this is the site of the old McClintock Woods pool?
  24. Now that the Hurricanes are no longer affiliated with the Checkers the odds of the ever happening are now less than zero. The Hurricanes are scheduled to play a game at Carter Finley Stadium next season so if you feel like making a drive then you can enjoy that.
