GMU: Where Construction is Tradition

EBA is probably in the best location on campus. If they can find an interior design that works and put enough money into renovations, I say keep it.

Second scenario is build a new arena right next to it.
If we are talking dream world, I say put a new areana as close as possible to the dorms, and put the dining hall in the areana haha. One stop shop.

I think the arena already is as close to the dorms as it can be? The only other place you could put another arena (besides right next to the current one) would be to move it to Lot J, which wouldn't be a bad idea since it would be right across from the RAC and right next to the former Mason Inn. You might be able to get away with that, but it would be a tight squeeze.

Unless you wanted to move it across 123 over where the Field House is as part of an overall athletics center.

I am going a little stir crazy without Mason basketball at the moment. My mind is really wondering which led me thinking about mascots. I started to think if Mason was forced to pick a new mascot, what should they pick.

Originally, I was thinking any Ram predator, so bobcat or coyote.

Then I read this article and realized colleges are really missing the mark. There are so many good animals to choose from.

I’m personally a fan of the Blue-footed booby “Not the fiercest animal, but remember your team gets to run on the field in turquoise cleats to the rhythmic chant of “BOOBIES! BOOBIES!” That's a no-brainer.”

Also noticed they've been doing roof work at the arena. Flying over it the other day most of the roof is covered up and lots of construction equipment up there.

The winning bid was picked and the winner was notified yesterday. There is still some paperwork the the company needs to submit to Mason, but it looks like they will be able to start soon. The winning bid was just under $700,000 for the project.

Without Gunnie, these boards would just be a bunch of idiots writing bad poetry with user names that have "stank" somewhere in their name.

This was projected at $1 million right? Hopefully we have some excess funds to roll over to finish the practice facility.
