i'd like to see the funding plan, since when tf did Fresno get that kind of cheese? It's Fresno, theyre brooooke

pie in the sky UNLVNOW type project unless I see something solid

I was looking for UNLV's funding plan for The Raider's stadium and I read UNLV didn't come up with a dime to pay for that stadium.  It was all the NFL, the Raiders and visiting tourism tax that are paying for the digs.

Must be nice to throw nothing in,  just pay some rent and collect gameday revenues and change out the velcro UNLV signs/logos each week.

Seen a few fights at your high school stadium, so at least San Jose can claim some feature to bring on the crowds hundred or so fans.  Clearly the product doesnt.

If you saw fights there, it must have been a game against Fresno. I'll just assume you people started it.

lol they don't even pay rent, UNLV lives RENTFREE just in like all of your heads. UNLV gets paid $5mill/yr for 10 years to offset misc event hosting at Sam Boy ON-TOP of gameday revenues. 

not as sweet as the UNLVNOW campus & stadium project that Ed Roski w/ Majestic Reality woulda, coulda, shoulda built back in 2012, but that was back in the day when every politician, developer, casino company, etc  would take turns cockblocking any stadium proposal on the Strip unless they had their dick in the pie so nothing ever got done. 

won't hear me complaining one bit how it shaked out. It dug UNLV Football out of the financial mess they're in and was able to hire a capable HC from the SEC for $2 mill~/yr as the highest paid coach in the conference. Which with our stellar track record with coaches, should work out wonderfully of course.....yes....of course.

So this article is wrong about paying rent? I thought you guys offset that by gameday proceeds you brought in?

The article seems confused on what the definition of rent is. I see it as landlord issuing regular fixed cost to a tenant the use of a property. UNLV isn't being charged by the Raiders or anyone for using/occupying the stadium. The article is comparing UNLV paying $50-75k at Sam Boyd in gameday expenses as opposed to $365k~ per game in Allegiant but that isn't rent. It's gameday operations that any program would have to pay regardless if they're the sole user of a stadium or not. It's cost of doing business: ticketing staff, security, concessions, clubs, retail shops, bars/lounges, suites etc. Also you're right, the $5mill is a waterfall payment if stadium net revenues don't exceed $5 mill. 2022Y stadium net revenues were $5.5 million so they didn't tap into it. 

Article is pointing out gameday expenses are substantially more at Allegiant than Sam Boyd. Yeah, no shit.

I've heard Boise have been renovating for weeks on their facilities. Hope it is true. Better facilities will only improve the conference as a whole.

Yeah, they've already raised $40m of the proposed $300m in facilities upgrades. They're installing LED lights and new video board right now in the football stadium. Lights for softball and soccer are going in this summer. The money has already been raised for the new basketball practice facility. The North End football stadium project has been submitted and will be the next project done. Likely completed for the '24 season. '25 at the latest.

After that, I'm not sure what project will be the priority. It seems like the new on campus soccer and beach volleyball courts would be the most affordable next project. Donors can earmark where they want their funds to go to, so that could potentially dictate what project would be next.

Great looking upgrades Dawgs. I am green with envy at your proposed upgrades. Now which one of you Dawgs fans is going to host me for a Utah State vs Fresno game when they play in the new digs? 

There are only two things I can't stand in this world: people who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch.

Doesn’t a landlord charge rent? Isn’t that pretty much a fixed cost? Anyways we don’t need to debate these semantics. 
 

I was just jabbing at you a bit for trying to slam Fresno’s situation. When UNLV hasn’t paid a dime to build Allegiant.

Clearly it would be the visiting fans since you wouldn’t be able to find a SJSU within sight of the stadium.

The joke here is SJSU has no fans. They belong in a conference with UC Davis and Cal Poly. The two real Cal State football programs will soon leave them behind.

You guys crack me up. Seriously thank you.  Fresno or other schools can’t build a stadium without board fist fight.
 

Some of these Cali fan fights are salty. Love it.  

 

It gives me a headache just trying to think down to your level

What’s that say about your situation at SJSU? You guys literally have a major stadium improvement project that significantly reduces seating capacity. What’s worse is that you guys chose to reduce seating on the visitor side where you actually make a few bucks off of teams that have fans.

Its cute watching you trash talk with that milk mustache…mooooo, MF’er!

 I could do that!  Only if you can host me this fall when I come to Logan for the game!
