The 'Peckers play in a relatively new stadium down by the Airborne Museum in Fed-ville if anybody wants to run down there of a weekend.

Almost all the low teams that were cut from MLB affiliation have turned into college summer teams. The Salamanders were already in that league the last few years.

I have season tickets. Let me know if any of you come down and I’ll buy you a beer. The first year in the stadium was 2019. A lot of the kids on that roster played on mlb teams last year with several pitching for the Astros in the playoffs last year.

An old friend was the project manager on the stadium for the architect. He said construction was "fun" .... which means the polar opposite. I stuck my head in near the end to consult on a safety issue and it looks like a nice facility for the level of competition. Glad you're enjoying it.

Yea. They did a nice job. Love the “open” concept... meaning you can walk around the entire park on the same level. Reminds me of a mini Truist park in Atlanta. The kids zone is cool too

Hope this is a good game tonight
First time champion either way. Thank what you want.
Last time Baylor was in the FF, State was there also. We ended up third.

does any other fanbase want to move back to an old much smaller arena? Vs a newer state of the art place. I thought the Reynolds fetish would be over by 22 years but I guess not.

Well there's a girl that lives up the block
Back in school she could turn all the boys' heads
Sometimes on a Friday I'll stop by
And have a few drinks after she put her kids to bed
Her and her husband Bobby well they split up
I guess it's two years gone by now
We just sit around talking about the old times
She says when she feels like crying
She starts laughing thinking about

Glory days well they'll pass you by
Glory days in the wink of a young girl's eye
Glory days, glory days

Yeah ... problem being that even I have a hard time holding much against Hubert Davis. He's a truly decent guy.
1. He's a Hole. Fudge him.
2. When he publicly repudiates the 30 year eligibility scam, I'll reconsider. I'll not start holding my breath.
3. The quip about Reynolds was referring to his comparison of Cameron and Reynolds from his playing days. Duke students shout things at you and make you laugh. State students shout things as you and make you cry. Anyone who thinks the atmosphere in PNC is the same as Reynolds is a pinball wizard. A consistently high quality product might help, however.

I think Pack fans need to worry about all the bad to average BB coaches they keep hiring rather than where they play. Robinson, Lowe, Sendek, Gottfried and Keatts are not really ACC quality. Maybe Davis will do well but if he doesn't he will probably gone after 4 years. K and Dean and Roy Williams were nobodies when they became head coaches. And all 3 are hall of famers as coaches.
