More than 400 acres are devoted to the facility.

    @fauxjohnbob: It doesn't matter who gave the money or where it came from, the Bored of Rejects and Sharp get to choose the contractors. Take a look at the donors to Perry's campaign chest (you can get a list on the web). Nor does all the money come from donors. Maintenance costs, custodial costs and landscape costs are all paid for out of the university budget. Courses are not being funded because this takes a higher priority.

    elf:

    Perhaps A&M fired you and you are just disgruntled, taking out your musings on the anonymous BCS Eagle. Did you ever think that a lot of the money for this project came from private donations or those corporations you demonize? Usually any improvements in athletic facilities come from private sources. Do a little research and don't let MSDNC tell you how to think.

    I wonder what construction firms got the 80 million dollar contract? That does seem to be a lot of money for an equestrian center, especially when Texas A&M fires many technical and teaching staff and faculty because it doesn't have the money to pay for it. I still wonder which of Perry's friends got the contract.

    He doesn't have time to post with all his other names.

    The "johnbob" posting here is not the same person as the old johnbob. The name was stolen during the switch in web format.

    400 acres is about 2/3 the size of main campus. Where exactly are they going to put this?
