THE REAL DEL
By JERRY DEAL
This writer is informed BY a source near the situation that the preliminary thoughts by the University of Texas board that was selected to determine if football should be a part of the college sports at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley are that it should be included.
After all, it measures up to other UT systems schools and should fit right in. Plus, It would give so many Valley high school students who excel in football, but are ignored by other universities a chance to show they can do just as well.
All that said, next comes the location for a stadium.
Of course the upper Valley will seek to have it there, no doubt McAllen or Edinburg, and so far holds most of the political power surrounding the school — that already has been proven.
Most of the media releases and action at UTGRV has come from the Edinburg facility and the school and its media representatives.
But for the overall situation to be examined and be fair, a UTRGV stadium should be located near the center location of the two bodies of the school, — and that is Harlingen!!
It is likely that a new college stadium will not be constructed for a few years, for one reason it will not be necessary, but Boggus Stadium could handled the crowd for a number of years.
It there are to be real fans they will come a few miles to see the Vaqueros play — and hopefully win.
Let’s get some Harlingen area folks backing this idea, OK?
