I think this plan sounds nice! However it would suck if the Bombers left town, hopefully they will come to a meaningful descision.

USC plan excludes Bombers

USC has offered to finance a new $12 million baseball stadium and amphitheater that excludes the Capital City Bombers, provided the city of Columbia commits $300,000 a year in hospitality tax revenue.

That explains what Kevin Cohen was talking about today. He had a caller mention something about letting Lexington step up so the stadium could go in that County. (I had to go to Cola today- obviously). The caller also mentioned something about merging the city with the county (Lexington). I didnt hear the whole thing, so I wasnt real sure what it was about... something about more control, less division (which is kind of a given)

The amphitheater idea is great! Outdoor concerts are really cool... I'm just glad to hear that they are still working on it.

The impression I got is that if the Bombers don't get a new stadium, they will leave. Not a threat, just a fact. Haha, maybe they will go to Greenville?
