Bring on the revenue. Fertitta center was all over the news for the Globetrotters this morning. A lot of publicity for our facilities lately.

Makes perfect sense. 4 of the stadiums are NFL ones which are too big, 2 are soccer stadiums which are too small, and the old Ballpark in Arlington is terrible for football. I’m sure us having the paintable turf sealed the deal.

Hopefully we get the concessions straightened out for this game. Not good in game 1.

Pretty surprised they didn’t just aim to do this at one of the team’s home stadium… not sure a big crowd will be there if Houston isn’t in it.

Don’t worry, the Roughnecks will take care of the crowd.

That’s really good for them and us. They had a 10 year naming rights deal. When it comes back up, it will help our price.

Wow! That is totally, completely, hugely, extravagantly awesome! What an honor for us!

The AFL’s first two title games were hosted by the Oilers on campus at Jeppesen Stadium, that league turned out ok.

I thought the first one was in San Diego?

How much does UH actually get from the XFL? The new turf was great but how much does it help the bottom line?
