In the article by the SEMO reporter, he says that the money is raised and completion date is December of 2021. I assume Homecoming will be the announcement.

Ok Leon, we are now almost 10% through your 20 year plan. The bleachers look great, but after last weekend, I know we can fit more people into the stadium. 3/4 of the place was absolutely obnoxious that whole game. I have no doubt the SRO ticket holders were just as insane as the rest of us, but it would be nice to have the other end as intimidating. Let us know where we are at and let’s get this thing done.
He is waiting for your phone call donating 10 million. You do that and I am in for a thousand, and I am on a fixed income.


Now sorry for caring about Cat/griz too much. I've been properly chastised by the coach of the other team. :-^

If the EZ Project from 2011 is any indication, there will under 1,000 people who actually donate to the facility project. So if everyone wants this and future sections completed, get out the checkbook! (Or credit card. They take quarterly or yearly CC payments towards a pledge!)

Let’s not forget that this thing is far from over. This is just the beginning folks. It would amazing if they also had the money once construction beings to add in the north end zone seating as well the indoor practice field.

We could say TG makes the freshman wear pink thongs to every practice and you would say, "I'm so glad he left Missoula he tried that here and it didn't work either. LOL LMAF OMG LOL BAE" and whatever else you fruits over in Missoula say -Hi-Line

The goal was $18 million. Maybe an announcement this Saturday?

Best part is that with $1.5 million pre authorized the announcement isn't keeping the facility from proceeding on schedule. Great plan by the athletic department.


While registering my vehicles the assessor stated "I have had both Cat and Griz students and alums work for me and the Griz end up working under the direction of the Cats."

Been trying to donate for three days now but the website can't find my user info, I don't have a CID or Alumni membership number, and no one replys to messages.

It should not be hard to donate, and it has been hard.

The athletics office is just like it always has been, no one around to assist.

Haven’t heard about when the announcement will be made. Seems like the perfect weekend to do it!

Hello Bobcat Nation,

If all the stars lineup (a sellout, decent football weather, and a win) this weekend will be remembered for a long time.

A huge announcement is on its way...

Cheers, Felix

So help me, Felix - if you're just teasing us and the "big" announcement is that Chips Ahoy now has even more chocolate chips, we will burn your house down!

Although I would still be pretty stoked about that...
