One month ago new Colorado St. Rams athletic director Jack Graham envisioned that an on-campus stadium would be build for the Colorado State football team.
Graham is now saying that a new stadium will be built by 2014 with the cost ranging from $100 - $200 million, and he assures everyone that a replacement for Hughes Stadium is a reality:
"A new stadium is going to happen. This is not a 'maybe it's going to happen' kind of a conversation. We are actively moving toward the construction of a stadium on our campus and it is going to happen," Graham said.
The money for the project will be raised through private donations, alumni and fundraising projects; no money would come from state tax payers, according to Graham. As of right now there has not been a location named for the new stadium, but Graham wants to get the community involved in the process.
