    Re: Georgetown: New Football Facility In 2018

    I'm satisfied that this proposal amounts to Georgetown giving a stiff middle finger to the "great unwashed" of the rest of the Patriot League. It confirms in no uncertain terms how they at 37th and O look at us.

    It looks like there will be a brick or masonry wall behind the dirt/construction debris mound on which the Hoyas will require visitors and their families to sit. I think appropriate for PL game days would be a 40 foot long banner stretched along that wall, for all to see, returning the gesture in the very spirit in which it is given.

    I'll get to work on some mock-ups.

    Just to clarify, what you said about Kehoe Field applies equally to Shaw Field?

    Or did I miss a step here?

    Sorry, I meant on the hill just north of Kehoe. Looked it up: Shaw Field. It had a major renovation in 2012.

    From D.C. Zoning Administrator Matthew Le Grant's December 16, 2016 letter:

    "[T]he facility will provide approximately 3,000 bleacher seats on the west side of the field and approximately 1,000 - 1,500 lawn seats, which is within the total amount of seating previously approved by the Commission."

    Unless I'm mistaken, then, the actual seating will expand from 2,400 to only 3,000, not 4,740. That's $83,333.33 per additional seat. I'll bet even military contractor lawn chairs cost less.

    Looks more like tearing down the old away bleachers to extend the turf to accommodate two rec fields ala Hopkins, building a brick facade around what is already on the home side, and planting some trees. .

    Someone needs to show "The Commission" photos of Montana's facility, or JMU's, or the Fargo Dome, or S. Dakota State's, or S. Carolina State's, or Liberty's, or Alabama State's, or a dozen others, and say: "this is what a nice, FCS level facility should look like...".

    Less money would be available to recruit and graduate the likes of Allan Iverson or Patrick Ewing...
