    Everybody is comically small to Dexter. I'm 6'5" and 235 lbs, and I'm comically small next to him.

    Thad interviewing with Roy right now.

    - We are upgrading food service. It was good before but not best, which is the standard. We'll be best now. Hiring a staff of people who cook like mama.

    - Alabama had the best weight room. Oklahoma had best layout. Tennessee had best trainer facilities. Thad took each, made them better, made them "clemson", and combined them.

    - He gets a lot of comments from people that he says too much, letting out our secrets. He says we don't care--if everyone copies us, that's what's best for CFB and the kids.

    - coach Swinney helps his employees in ways we'll never know. His employees are all happy. "Do you think any of us will ever leave him?"

    - the lobby area is open to the public. He had it locked initially but coach Swinney said no, that's not clemson. Open it up.

    Thad dreams for the future:

    - we'll always improve and stay best

    - upgrading sound in DV

    - upgrade video boards in DV

    - coach has a vision for the east side of stadium. He won't tell us what it is. But we'll never touch the Hill

    Would like for us to take a portion of revenue, when we aren't using it to build buildings, and endow scholarships for the band members starting with dummies and brass instruments. Need to be more badass.

    This was the "Final West Endzone Plan" in 2001:

    "The stadium projects include new locker rooms and media areas, a recruiting room, a bridge connecting the north and south sides to include a "Fun Zone," additional concessions and restrooms and a sports-theme restaurant."

    Do something to add seating over there. Get us to 100k then tier ticket prices. We won't have problems selling out.

    Don't worry, we'll just give up another tailgating lot. No big deal.

    I found the posts where we discussed it before, it was just everyone saying we should put the stadium in Pendleton so we don't lose parking, and we better not spend a bunch on it :haha:

    That's a huge waste of money and I thought we were a conservative school. Softball doesn't fit into that

    I'm not saying it's smart to do this but I have to think some of the reasoning is that no one cares or participates much in diving/swimming a ton in SC. Whereas there are plenty of girls playing softball in SC and surrounding states.

    Why don't we just relocate those ag research fields? Would allow us to expand campus and athletics complex. Plant that shit somewhere else.

    Rowing has like 40+ scholarships and requires very very little in the way of expenses. 1 boat for every 12 (?) women or some shot like that. Best Title IX cost savings we could hope to have.

    Bingo!!

    "Softball is a tremendously popular sport among young women in the state of South Carolina and around the nation," Director of Athletics Dan Radakovich said. "We've evaluated our sport offerings over the past few years and believe this is our best path forward. Among other considerations, softball will allow us to provide an opportunity to compete quickly with the other 13 softball-playing schools of the Atlantic Coast Conference, for increased exposure with our television partners and allow for our continued compliance with Title IX participation ratios."

    Any idea why we'd suddenly be falling out of compliance with Title IX? Is it a money spent thing? Don't know what male scholarships we'd be adding.

    I had no idea that the dikes were actually built to save that land since we have crop records dating back before Hartwell was built. One of the many things I learned through my senior design project where we built a sustainable wash down area for the crops they grow. Side benefit was I got a shit ton of free food that year.
