    I'm willing to bet that Monmouth wants to add seats as well - however, the problem for you is that West Long Branch is NEVER letting that happen.

    Zoning restrictions will limit facility to just 4k forever.

    Nice progress made hopefully this is the last snow storm of the year so that they can make up time lost and have it completed in time for the opening game. If by chance they can't open in time is it possible the opening game gets swapped to Lafayette?

    And I agree the CAA won't approve a school with a 4k capacity stadium but the Patriot League would especially if it could swap it out with Georgetown (If Georgetown decided to drop their football down to D3 using an exception)..

    It wouldn't be the first time an opener was switched due to facilities construction. From the construction pics, it looks like all the necessary footings and anchors are in place. Presumably the utilities are in place as well, from the previous structure. So you're not dealing with frozen ground conditions as an impediment. Just some snow (followed but mud I'm sure) but at most that's a couple of days. It seems to me all the work is above ground now. They'll wait until it's about 50 degrees for poured concrete but that's probably been the plan all along.

    Gotta have faith, though. They'll get it done!

    Since there are no stands, will the fans get to be ON the field for the spring game?

    Sad they cannot make this a bit bigger but if well built, should be nice!

    No interest.

    That will never happen on campus. West Long Branch would never approve. I was surprised the school had no interest in building a bigger facility at the old Fort Monmouth facility.
