Sounds like where these guys play.

My daughters went to that school. Their '93 state championship victory was a game for the ages. They scored with 12 seconds left to win 43-37.

Texas had two high school divisions - something like 5A Div. 1 and 5A Div. 2 - and in '96, the QB of the other division's champion was Drew Brees.

$700. Million. Dollars. For a stadium without a team.

Just move the Jaguars already.

If I was the Chargers I don't see why you wouldn't jump all over this. They can stay in SD until the Stadium is finished and keep but expand their fanbase.

I could also see a NFC team like the Vikes or someone jump as well.

What is it with my metro area and stadia?

You have a plan for a cheaper stadium in Industry, with all environmental reviews passed, just waiting for a team to commit.

Then you have a downtown stadium pitched, with a naming rights deal already secured, but none of the reviews even started, and with demolition/site work to factor in.

And all this after the Rose Bowl/Coliseum/Carson/Irwindale/Hollywood Park/Dodger Stadium parking lot/Angel Stadium parking lot indecision that made us lose out to Houston.

LOL WUT?

Difference here is that the requirements were much tighter to secure an expansion franchise. To get a relocated team, it doesn't matter if multiple groups are competing, so long as one of them can actually seal a deal.

I used to drive by that thing all the time (Denton to Dallas and vice versa).

If I were the Chargers, that's exactly what I'd do, only I'd continue to have training camp in San Diego and commit to playing one preseason game at the Q every year.
