Were you wondering about how planning for the new stadium is going?
The ABJ's Carol Bilickzy wrote an very informative story about where the process is, and where university officials hope it is headed.
VP of planning Ted Curtis said he is optimistic that five years is the timetable.
The big question is money.
If you ask me, it's time for an Akron corporation to step in. I remember Goodyear's CEO Bob Keegan talking about turning the tire company into a marketing company, or at least in philosophy.
Mr. Keegan, imagine Goodyear Stadium, where one of the nation's most up-and-coming college football teams plays.
Almost every large city has its local corporations' names on the stadiums, i.e. Miller Park, the United Center, Comerica Park, Safeco Field, etc. Northeast Ohio has none of that. (Quicken Loans is based in Michigan.)
In a way, it's nice to have teams devoid of commercialism. In the Zips case, the university could really, really use the money.
