We don't know yet. The idea is that if we get the funds to complete the stadium additions by the game we will stay with Jonesboro, otherwise we may go with the payoff from St. Louis in order to get the money to complete them. Word is that we are halfway there. But the last half is always the hardest.

Some of the other guys probably know more.

Someone posted on AStateNation that there were only 8 od 18 luxury boxes left open as of 2 weeks ago, and there were three 'booms' by Tyler Cronwell one day this week(which is suppose to be another one taken for each boom).

Looks like with each passing day the chances of the game being moved is less.

I think it will end up staying in Jonesboro judging by the way the school is going about things. As has been said, if we can sell enough luxury boxes to help with profit margins, then we'll probably keep the game in town as a result.

Date will not change regardless where its played.

With a new press box and sold suites to show off, there is no way they move this game from Jonesboro.

The AD created a sense of urgency by talking about Mizzou and it is paying off big time. My back of the envelope calculation is right now they have around $4 million committed over 7 years in premium seating agreements.

I've not dug into the finances yet but I think much of the premium seating revenue will go toward securing bonds to build the ops center.

A friend of mine whose high end seats are jumping in price next year told me he is getting pressured to commit for either 3 or 5 years. He was told they wanted this commitment so they could take it to the bank.

Guess my seats aren't high end enough I offered a multi-year commitment.
