Scott Stadium isolated? From what? North Grounds?

I don't understand the relevance of that point at all.

Scott Stadium is a short walk to nearly all on-grounds housing, it's hundreds of yards from the Lawn, it's even close to the Corner.

Don't get it. Not sure I see any value in it being close to anything else.

I'm all in on the softball at Lambeth pitch, so long as it doesn't have a huge negative impact on surrounding neighborhoods, but some of the arguments here don't make much sense to me at this point.

Somebody help me to understand.

The number one fact that I see is quite simple...UVa Grounds is VERY limited in size, and therefore, the use of any sizeable parcel of land must be very carefully planned. Schools like VT and Clemson don't need to worry nearly as much, and can easily afford to have all sorts of land available for student recreation, open spaces, or whatever pleases the eye.
