  1. Same here with HULU but I did upgrade and pay the extra 10 bucks for no adds.
  2. Stadium size is not important. The trend in stadiums is to go smaller or the term "Right Sized". Fans want more activities at stadiums like club and stadium boxes, beer gardens, party decks, etc.. All the amenities help create a better fan experience. Stanford, UCF, and Baylor are examples of schools that went to smaller stadiums. The goal is to fill the stadium and create demand, the higher the demand the more you can raise ticket prices. IMO whether a stadium is 40K, 50K or 60k is irrelevant, it is about the game day experience. More and more fans are choosing the their couch and big sc
  3. No the the Q is still upright but barely. We need to play there until the new stadium is ready.
  4. AKA... the Dart Vader helmet.
  5. Indianapolis is the where the NCAA is located. This why Indianapolis hosts a final four like every 5 year at Lucas Oil Stadium, it is literally down the street from their home office.
  6. We won't know any actual voting data until after the polls close at 8pm. Most people think it will be close for Measure G to pass. The Measure E backers who have a competing initiative for the SDCCU site have heavily campaigned against Measure G. The Measure E polling data is low and that group's best chance at this point is if both measures fail. If both fail the city will start over again with an RFP process, and we go down this road again. We are hoping that city of San Diego residents see this tactic and Vote no on E and Yes on G, so the University can grow and prosper.
  7. Here is quick synopsis of both plans. Both plans call for a new smaller sized stadium, but the rift is who gets to control the development, and revenue streams along with how the surrounding space to the stadium is used. Measure E: SoccerCity The goal: La Jolla-based FS Investors wants to redevelop the Qualcomm Stadium property. Its plan emerged amid concerns about the Chargers’ departure. FS Investors is asking voters to force the city to lease the land — along with the Murphy Canyon site of the former Chargers headquarters — to it so it can build an urban district centered
  8. I expect the Soccer City folks to go crazy with ad blitzes all over these last 3 weeks. The SDSU West group needs to be ready and counter it to keep their momentum.
  9. I agree, the only reason ASU was ranked is they beat Mich St. which in my opinion was overrated. Both those teams will go bowing this year but they probably win at best 8 games and will not be rated at the end of the season. I am starting to feel better about our loss to Stanford, especially if the Tree wins their next two against Oregon and ND.
  10. The California Supreme Court has removed a major obstacle to new local taxes. Proposition 218, passed in 1996, requires two-thirds of voters to approve special taxes (on schools or a specific industry or for a specific purpose). But in a 5-to-2 decision, the justices ruled Proposition 218 only applies to taxes proposed by government officials — that voter initiatives need only a simple majority. This is why the "Friends of SDSU" is leading the initiative and not SDSU directly. Friends of SDSU makes the proposition a voter based initiative versus a government referendum for tax inc
  11. It looks like ESPN networks is code for ESPNU or ESPN3.
  12. You can rank them anyway you want. The reality is we are likely a 1 bid conference again this year. What matters now is which team can win in Vegas to get in to the NCAA?
