The baseball and softball fields are just adequate, not bad but not great. The track was resurfaced a few years back and is okay.

    We are finally have raised funds to build an on campus basketball facility but that is a few years away.

    I guess we aren't in too bad a shape considering all the budget cuts to higher education in Louisiana. Not bad but could be better but I don't seeing us keeping up in the future.

    Based on pictures and videos I've seen, the Field House looks very nice.

    For basketball, I haven't been to Burton Coliseum yet. Before I moved away from the area, I enjoyed making the trip over to Lake Charles for games at the Lake Charles Civic Center. Saw some really good basketball by both teams back then too.

    I have always enjoyed the competition with our friends on the other side of the Sabine. Of course, I enjoy it more when we win.

    LU stadium photos always crack me up. They do everything possible to not show the refinery a few feet from their stadium.

    Just like others don't. For example, University of Louisville doesn't highlight the plant about two blocks north of Papa John's Stadium and directly across the street from their soccer field and practice fields.

    It is what it is and anyone can look it up on Google Maps. I don't have access to aerial shots other than Google Maps and other services.

    Just as an added note, right across the freeway about one mile south is the site of Spindletop Field, listed on the National Register of Historic Places and listed as a National Historic Landmark.

    I also didn't highlight the Unesco International Bioreserve site (Big Thicket National Preserve) a few miles north either.

    Since I last posted about Harvard stadium several years ago in another thread titled similar to this one, they already have installed the FieldTurf surface and the bubble that allows Crimson teams to use it for their winter activities.

    More information about the stadium "bubble" and a time-lapse video of its installation: http://www.gocrimson.com/information...Stadium_Bubble
    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.

    Richmond has a small but lovely 9,000 seat on campus stadium, built in 2009.

    Robins Stadium






    Richmond also just spent over $20 million dollars renovating the Robins Center in phases. The Center contains the Arena, locker rooms, offices, weight rooms, training facilities, and is just south of Robins Stadium.

    Here is the newly renovated Arena, which seats 7,500 or so.

    Plenty of Plants within a few miles of Cowboy Stadium. But what we don't have is "The Unit" nearby like SHSU does

    At least our city eyesore isn't right next to stadium or emits a putrid smell.

    And it has bats...
