    You only win if you finish the stnads by Kickoff 2018....and early the indication I got a few days ago was that it may not be completely finished by then.

      Maybe. In BigXII logic, we're sort of like Anti-"Texas Tech". Everybody hates Tech, but nobody wants to call them their rival. In our case, everyone wants to call us a rival, even if we don't. Maybe that makes us like the Longhorns- Hated by everyone, but not good enough to win the conference.

        A&M was the rival of Tech as long as I can remember. The notable horse & rider statue - Will Rogers & Soapsuds - that is on campus was placed so that the horse’s rear end faces College Station. Not sure who is now that they left.

        Only three reasons I can think of to dislike Tarleton. 1 Reisman. 2 University is a have in D2 not sure how they are accumulating 3 Cowboy farmer culture

          A&M was the rival of Tech..and Tech wasn’t the rival of A&M. Kinda like the situation we’re in right now. Hard to have a true rival when nobody in the conference really cares about or fears you.

            Trust me Aggies I personally know always talked trash and knew it was a rivalry. In order for it to be a good rivalry both sides have to win which is why ACU isn’t developing any at FCS level. Maybe HBU can be your new rival.
            Checkout the all time series between the two schools almost even. 37-32 A&M according to Wikipedia who also lists it as a rivalry.

              Funny thing now Aggy is without a natural rival since they took their toys and went to the SEC!SEC!SEC! They are trying real hard with LSU and Arkansas, but those two refuse to cooperate. Poor Aggy!

                I saw a report on the stadium and it used the phrase, substantial completion by first game.

                Speaking of stadiums, WT folks are talking about their great new facility and I’m sure it will be. Both schools are spending roughly the same dollar figures but Tarleton is only building one side of stands. The current home side will become the visitor and student side. My understanding is it will be torn down and a new east stands will be in place.

                  If Tarleton is spending $40 Million on just the homeside, someone should be fired. That place needs TONS of upgrades beyond just the stands...

                    New turf, new scoreboard, new locker rooms. It’s not just stands.

                      One of the visual benefits WT will have over us is no track. We are keeping the track which I think greatly diminishes the stadium.

                            We have an extremely consistent team, always in last place, men and women.

                                Cost is a little over $26 million....not $40 million.
