Definitely huge for the school, can't wait to see Owens GONE. What an eyesore that is. Really, with the track gone and Owens replaced, the stadium will look big league for the first time ever, and hopefully we'll get some decent televised games with a nationally ranked team by that time!
Just as long as they don’t install a waterfall fixture.
But ours would light up on a regular basis.....
I regret that I have only one thanks to give for this post.

Thanks to Moonshine and others for noting the approvals in this afternoon's posts.
My bad on breaking the story 66, definitely wasn’t trying to steal your shine! ;)

I had attended a meeting with some folks from campus who shared the information so I figured the news was public knowledge at that point. This is fantastic news and should transform Appalachian. I’m excited to see the final product.

Now if the leadership can put together another campaign in the coming years that solely focuses on trying to increase the university’s endowment between $150-$200mil, we can really go after those upper echelon students.

We should come up with the first hologram midfield logo so that the block looks to be facing each set of stands. Then we can set up tv crews on the east side to get good shots of the raucous students and the A wouldn’t be upside down on tv.

No issue what-so-ever...thankful that you got the word out as I was in storm-prep mode. The dorm issue has been on my mind for years. I moved out of Justice into Newland because of the three-freshmen-to-a-room living conditions in '62 and it's still going

Oooo Nooo, power glitch...not a good sign! As I was sayin'...I moved out of Justice into Newland because of the three-freshmen-to-a-room living conditions in Nov '62 and it's still going 56 years later substantially unchanged. Good grief, Charlie Brown...

BB and DD's mountain school is growing up. I bet they are smiling in their graves above the bookstore.
