Well played, garmen.

And ease up on the Corpus hate. There are much worse places to call home. In fact, Corpus & Mobile have a great deal in common.

No Corpus much better being just south of some of the greatest areas in the US. Texas hill country a blast and the south Tx beaches are very respectable.. 04-cheers

If South Alabama builds an on-campus football stadium, where should it be located?
I talked to my dad last night about this who retired from the University about a decade ago. As large as South's campus is, nearly a fourth of it has some wetland protection which would require federal environmental permits. Te best place would have been where the new intramural fields are, but there's not much parking around that site.

If the issues with the soil/groundwater can be worked out, it could be built behind where the practice field is now, but it may be challenging to keep the stadium from settling during construction. The only drawback is I'm not sure the University owns all of that tract, and there appears to be some type of road being built through there. I guess the road could be removed, since it never connected to Crossroad Drive or Old Shell Road in the two decades I lived in Mobile.

We are lucky. Our stadium isn't very far from the main campus. The university is buying land and building towards it with some rail system in the works to bring students back and forth.

So, this means you'll be staying clear, right? That could be a good thing.

Probably not. Mobile is about as far as Lafayette for me. If we stay in the Belt a few more years, I will be heading to Mobile for a game. Instead of some stupid comment, prove me wrong and post some pictures showing the beauty of the Campus. My daughter went to Spring Hill and I always wanted to take the exit and drive though to checkout your campus. I never had the time. I believe you guys have a hospital which is excellent for your school. Post some links or pictures of the campus.

That's good. Maybe GAST should try this! Once they by the Ted, they can convert a lot of it to Dorms and guarantee a bunch of student attendance. Imagine watching the game Live from your Dorm - maybe have a little balcony on the back of each like an apartment?

It's funny... but imagine how cool it would actually be 03-drunk04-cheers

What exit are you talking about. USA is two miles further down Old Shell Road from Spring Hill College. Same rolling hills as SHC. The only difference is that USA's golf course is on the Bay.

The school is much prettier than it once was. It always was in a really pretty environment (rolling hills). But much of the original campus was built on the cheap in the 1960s. They've been systematically replacing all those hideous buildings.

I think the stadium should be accross the stream from the Library and Medical School. Plenty of pretty property (unused) over there. But my statue isn't going up next to the stadium so to speak. The stadium will be on Old Shell Road next to Stanky Field and the Mitchell Center.

I remember on the way to Spring Hill there was an exit sign for USA. Perhaps that was the long way? I don't recall ever going north of Spring Hill.
