I've seen a number of different plans over the past few years

for the proposed football operations center. Most recently, I was told they were leaning toward consuming the McCue parking lot and build toward Emmitt. Until Athletics/VAF can get a full gauge on the fundraising potential for the project, nothing definitive will be announced. Plus, these initial plans were developed under Jon Oliver's oversight. Surely, Carla Williams and Jim Booz will want to place there fingerprints on a project that is still in the concept phase. Nonetheless, I don't see softball landing next to the Turf Field. Athletics didn't go into the Lambeth Field proposed project with blinders on. They knew there would be push back. As I said below, Athletics wanted to give softball a high profile venue. Lambeth Field accomplishes that mission, as well as contains the cost of the project.
